How to apply

Select a team of Champions

Please inform your students about the programme.  This programme is suitable for students in non-exam years. Select a team of interested students (maximum 4) from different classes or different years in your school. It may work well to choose a team with a mix of digital knowledge and technical experience. A range of organisational skills would also be an asset.


Agree the project
Once the school has selected a team of Champions, the next step is to collaborate and agree on the project your team will pursue. Choose a project under one of the three main project themes.


Complete the School Digital Champion Application Form
When you agree your project you can complete  the School Digital Champion Application Form. The teacher must complete the form in full and the application approved by your School Principal. Submit your completed application form to us by 10th October 2019.

 

Parent/Guardian Consent

School Digital Champions must complete a parental consent form (as Gaeilge). The lead teacher should return a signed copy of the parental consent form for each student selected to schooldigitalchampion@dccae.gov.ie  by 17th October 2019.


Complete the Project
We will ask students to complete a project report and submit it by email to schooldigitalchampion@dccae.gov.ie. The closing date for completion of all projects is 3rd April 2020.
