On 11 November, the Go Girls made a trip to the job fair in East Oxford (see separate post). The young women had researched and prepared a set of questions to ask potential employers. They interviewed and filmed with their iPads the responses of a wide rage of diverse employers, and then reflected on what they had learned from them. Using video editing software, the Go Girls then returned to the computer lab to edit their films, creating a short group documentary of their visit. The result can be viewed here. We would like to sincerely thank all the employers who agreed to be interviewed and filmed for the purpose of this short clip.
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.
