The Government wants to enhance the use of technology in teaching and learning. The Department of Communications, Climate Action and Environment, in collaboration with the Department of Education and Skills introduced this initiative, the School Digital Champion Programme on a pilot basis in 2015. The programme has now been launched nationally.
Our pilot programme was supported by numerous Supporting Partners.
We invited a number of schools to take part in our pilot programme which ran from November 2015 until May 2016. The pilot included a training day, visits to industry partners and a showcase of completed projects at the EXCITED Digital Learning Festival. Hear all about our successful events in the pilot programme from the teachers and students in the videos beneath!
