Digital Citizen – Third Cycle of Education for Librarians

Over 20 workshops organized for librarians from the region!


As part of the Digital Citizen project, during July we have organized new workshops for librarians on how to use micro:bit and BOSON sets. With these workshops, we have concluded the planned educational activities for librarians.

In the Digital Citizen project IRIM has, with local partners, equipped 170 libraries in Croatia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Serbia and Kosovo with educational technology (micro:bit and BOSON sets for micro:bit) with the aim to transform libraries into digital innovation and educational centers in their local communities.

Workshops prepared and strengthened librarians for their work with citizens and organization of educational activities with micro:bit and BOSON in their libraries. Additionally, all interested citizens have the equipment at their disposal and can borrow it for home use.

In this project we want to make modern educational technology more accessible to citizens in local communities and enable adults and children to acquire digital skills in libraries and/or their homes.

The map shows all libraries participating in the project in which you equipment can be borrowed.

Some libraries were also equipped with 3D printers and IRIM has provided education for librarians on their usage. This means that all interested citizens, with the help of librarians, will have the opportunity to develop their own ideas and print their own 3D creations.

Workshops were organized in Croatia (Zagreb, Karlovac, Koprivnica, Kutina, Pula, Osijek, Ploče, Nova Gradiška, Sisak, Split, Šibenik, Varaždin, Vinkovci, Zabok and Zadar), Serbia (Niš, Jagodina and Novi Sad), Bosnia and Herzegovina (Banja Luka, Zenica and Mostar) and on Kosovo. Almost 210 librarians participated in workshops.
