Elementary school "Miroslav Krleža", Zenica, in the past period has made significant investments in its own infrastructure to make it more inclusive. The school has been included in many internationally funded projects. Some of them were particularly focused on social inclusion of vulnerable students.
On one occasion in the hallway, the teacher on duty noticed that during the transfer of students from one classroom to another, after tying the shoelaces, one boy with sensory difficulties (deaf-mute) lost contact with his friends and could not call them, which made him panic. The teacher then came on the idea to engage a code club to create devices that would enable this student to communicate easier with his teacher.
Students from the Micro:bit club really liked this idea. As a part of the Micro:bit club students and teachers have created a code that would bind two Micro:bit devices. One device was supposed to be fixed on the teacher's wrist, and one on the wrist of a student with sensory difficulties. It was planned that the student wears one of the devices on the wrist that would be connected to the teacher, and at the push of a button, it would audibly signal to the teacher that the boy is calling her. In the same sequence, when the teacher wants to draw the student's attention, or call him, by pressing a button on his device, it would vibrate signal to the student that the teacher is calling him.
Unfortunately, although the students were working hard, Covid pandemics cut their work short and once Covid pandemic started they stopped their work on this project. The devices were never finalized and the student never got to use this device. Covid was inhibiting factor here which had great impact in this case, because The Government of BiH prohibited any kind of extra curriculum activities after Covid pandemic started, the school had to stop with all project activities and according to the English teacher they ‘could not develop the project fully’.
