Workshop 4: IFTTT Automation

8:30 This workshop is a formation event of the project “Girls and Boys are Programing in Europe” it will show you how to use the IFTTT Tool. It’s open for all of you who are interested in the subject. IFTTT, which means “If This Then That” is an Automation tool which can be used to connect different platforms using a very simple programming system which can be integrated with useful devices like Mobile phone functions, IOT technologies web services, etc. you will find all the materials in this link. This Workshop was imparted by prof. Alfonso Ballesteros

In this Workshop 4 about IFTTT Automation we will learn many methods that we can use to Automatize our work and the development of repetivite task. http://girlsboysprogramming.eu/iftt-automation-tool-workshop/ You can down load the manual here: C4-UIPEC-GBPE-Playamar-Mobility-IFTTT-Automatization-workshopDownload

Portugal Mobility C3

This Mobility C3 in Portugal, has been configurated as the 3nd European Congress: “Programing, Entreprenurship Art & Crafts ” of the Project : Girls and Boys are Programming in Europe with code 2019-1-CZ01-KA229-061282.

In this congress, Teachers and students from the differents schools of the erasmus project participated in the following activities : cultural activities, formation sessions, exhibitions and Working Sessions.

Covid Impact

As all the projects and mobilities in these times, this mobility has suffered also some problems and modifications due to Covid restrictions .

First of all it was planned to be developed in Spring of 2021 as the fourth mobility but due the confinations, it had to be postponed to this november 2021 as the third mobility before Italy.

Secondly, This mobility has been planned in a moment of the start of the concerns for the expansions of new variants of virus (like Omicron) and this has been an additional concern for the coordinators and teachers who are assuming a great responsability in case any member of the trip would be infected.

Finally , Families are no more eager or even willing to host students which are from other countries due to this illness concerns and this is an aditional problem because Students has to be hosted in paid accomodations like hotels and others and this was not part of the budget . This is a big difficulty for the budget plannets of each team.

Fortunately the Portuguese team has make a very strong effort to make everything work and to help everybody to make this mobility successful.

Also the Coordinators & Members of each team has worked hard to give our students this wonderful experience and formation.

Synergies & Cooperation

Three Teams of this This project (Spanish, icelandic and Czech Teams) shares another project which is relationated with Crafts ( Using ICTs to preserve European Craftsmanship ). As San Joao de Madeira has a very important crafts and industrial tourism orientation and taking advantage of this happy situation, we have developed several activities which can be beneficial for both projects.

This project has also count with the support of the town hall which has included our project in several local activities , the Sanjotec Enterprise platform, some Local enterprises and of course the Serafim Leite Team.

From these lines we want to thanks for their help and collaboration.

Iceland Mobility C2

This Mobility C2 Iceland Mobility has been configurated as the 2nd European Congress: “3D Printing, Vr and Programming” of the Project : Girls and Boys are Programming in Europe. with code 2019-1-CZ01-KA229-061282.

In this congress, Teachers and students from the differents schools of the erasmus project participated in the following activities : cultural activities, formation sessions, exhibitions and Working Sessions.

Covid Impact

This mobility has suffered many problems due to Covid restrictions and It was very near to be cancelled ( with the rest of the project ) however thanks to the efforts of the involved teams, it has been posible to Carry it out .

This mobility was originally planned for 16 of march of 2020 but due to the irruption of the panthemia in Europe and the all airports clousure that weekend, it had to be cancelled. Indeed we were a bit lucky because we were very near to get stuck in Iceland with the students for months and months. Other big problem was that many airlines and hotels did not gave back the money or they only gave some vouchers which were useless because they had to be used within a year. ).

After a 2020 Summer when COVID restrictions had been lowered, the Coordinators suggested the possiblity to carry out this mobility in october 2020, All the teams agreed and prepared their trip but suddenly at the end of september 2020, it appears the second wave of the panthemic and it had to be again posponed (with all budget problems of cancelations that it involve once more).

Finally, After a second year of restrictions but with the hope of an improvement of the situation, in a virtual Meeting in June 2020 . Teams decided to plan the mobility for september 2021.

Everything was going on, although we had serious budget problems and many of the participant paid their travel by themself because the Erasmus grant was lost in previous cancellations.

Unfortunately, in August 2020, there was an uprising of the COVID cases in Europe and many goberments hardened the conditions to travel (Vacination and Test) . Many students didn’t acomplish the requirements in some countries (vacination age not allowed in Italy and Spain) but it was possible to be vaccinated in others (C. Republic & Portugal) so we decided to make a mixed online-presential mobility where many of the workshops where retransmited using Etwinning & Google Meet Platform.

Synergies

This congress was set at the same school and time that the European Congress: “DESIGN WITH 3D PRINTING: APPLICATIONS TO ART AND EUROPEAN CRAFTSMANSHIP” from UIPEC Eramus Project and we were lucky to share many synergies and some activities with them.
