Excited to have you join us! :)
 
I just learned today that @CoderDojoNYC will host the first Coder Dojo Girls event -- a Google+ Hangout -- on Sunday, March 3rd (thanks +Rebecca Garcia for the news!). This initiative is aimed at getting more girls and women involved in Coder Dojo. There are already many women mentors and girls active in Coder Dojo worldwide, in some places more than others. This is a great initiative to discuss what's working well and to build from that -- part of a wider effort to move beyond traditional gender stereotypes in IT and STEM.

At my youngest daughter's birthday party yesterday, one of the mothers asked me if I was re-running the App Inventor classes I did last year in the school. She was hoping her older child would be able to take part. I told her I hadn't received any request from the school to do so but was open to it.

She pointed out that the teacher who has taken over that age-group "knows nothing about computers", which might explain the lack of interest.

It made me realise that it is a huge problem in Irish education if kid's access to knowledge is dependent on a teacher's personal interest in technology.

Absolute comfort with using interactive white boards, laptops and the internet should be core to ongoing teacher-training. This isn't a criticism of teachers, the system is just broken.
