Information Dissemination and Equal Access Project


Success thanks to IDEA Project Powered by Microsoft YouthSpark


Natalia (22 years of age) shared her experience of participation in the IDEA Project O]Powered by Microsoft YouthSpark: ‘I have a disability, and I am studying at Vinnytsia Pedagogical University named after M.Kotsyubynsky at the Faculty of Preschool and Primary Education and Arts. During my pedagogical internship recently, I received an opportunity to use a new knowledge that I acquired during training at the IDEA Center of NGO Parostok (Sprout) within IDEA Project Powered by Microsoft YouthSpark. The training’s theme was ‘Microsoft Information Technologies for Teachers: the Kodu Visual Programing Language’. Everyoone knows that one of most important task for a teacher is to trigger and maintain the students' interest to the educational material. I am not familiar with any complex languages of programing, so learning how to use the Kodu Game Lab visual designer during my classes, including designing demos and didactic games for different stages of the lesson, and consolidation of the lesson materials, was very helpful. Working with Kodu allowed me to raise the level of motivation and self-organization of my students in the class. Also, in March 2017, thanks to Project, I became a participant of the Women in IT public event held at the office of Microsoft Ukraine which enabled me to share my experiences of using IT in my work. Thank IDEA Project Powered by Microsoft YouthSpark for this great opportunity!’
