This week was a really exciting Go Girl session because we received our iPads! We spent most of today’s session setting them up then we used them to film new short videos and edited them. The videos were quite diverse, ranging from political to documentary style autumn themed videos. It was interesting to see how familiar everyone was with the setup despite not having owned an iPad before. The videos turned out great and we plan to have them present their videos to each other the next time we meet. There is no Go Girl session next week because it is half-term so everyone is on break but when we return the first week of November we are going to be moving on to blogging and GarageBand. A couple of the young women are interested in music production careers so it will be exciting to see what they come up with and how it all evolves.
At a glancego_girl: code+create is a project at the Department of Education, University of Oxford, run in partnership with the Oxfordshire County Council's Early Intervention Service. In line with Oxford’s targets in its Access Agreement with the Office for Fair Access, this interdisciplinary project complements existing programmes aimed at widening access to the University of Oxford, but tackles the problem in a fundamentally new way using technology. The research was originally supported by the University of Oxford IT Innovation Challenges Seed Fund and has received subsequent funding from Goldman Sachs Gives.
