Project 2: Digital imaging for primary school children

The first objective of this project was to point out to the elementary school children that pictures on the covers of magazines are not a real measure of beauty and that the photographs of celebrities are being edited by a whole range of experts and that this "artificial beauty" is not realistic. In this way, the students wanted to boost the self-confidence and self-esteem of children in higher grades of primary schools, who are, being in the adolescent age group, very sensitive to their external appearance and are constantly exposed to media pressure and photographs of the "perfect" men and women that impose a sense of inferiority. Another aim of the project was to present the "light" side of the Photoshop through practical workshops for children where they were designing various invitations and flyers, receiving skills that can come in handy during their future education.

Project 3: Safe friend is always a trend!

Since the informatics curriculum for primary schools does not include topics on safety and child security on the Internet, students have recognized the community need to convey the most important information on the protection and self-presentation on the Internet to children through a series of workshops.

Project 4: TOOROOM-VIRTUAL TOUR of the Velika Gorica Youth Club

The results of the survey adminstered by group Mladi and members of the Velika Gorica alternative scene showed that young people in town Velika Gorica (15 -29 years of age) lack the alternative places to go, they lack free educational workshops and debate club, cultural, sporting and social events and are in need of new contents. In order to meet the needs of these young people, the city mayor has encouraged the opening of the Youth Club.

In this projects, students created the applications TOOROOM that promotes and encourages young people in Velika Gorica to visit their Youth Club.

Project 7: Social inclusion of elderly at risk of social isolation

The project plan was to design and implement workshops of information literacy in the home for the elderly, aiming to help the elderly at risk of social exclusion.

Residents at homes for the elderly belong to a group of elderly people who are at risk of social exclusion due to lack of knowledge and inability to use ICT. The project enabled students to develop competencies and skills applying already acquired knowledge and has helped the residents at one institution (homes for the elderly) to gain ICT skills to a certain extent.

Students have concluded that older people shy away from new technology for several reasons:

a) physical disability (loss of vision, poor cognitive function, tremors ...)

b) mental "fence" (discomfort due to ignorance)

c) lack of knowledge and experience in use of the new technologies

After the workshop, however, their interest in the use of information technology grew for these reasons:

a) the ability to do what they were pleased (quizzes, online games ...)

b) better and more frequent contact with the families

c) knowledge about current events

d) recall of the past through viewing digital photos

e) socializing and quality free time
