The School Digital Champion Programme will elevate digital skills and competencies while providing students and teachers with a wide range of opportunities.
This is a unique opportunity for your students to become involved in an exciting and innovative programme that has the potential to involve learning at many levels.
The programme will:
- recognise those students that are pioneers in the use of new technologies
- maximise the possibilities for community involvement
- lead learning through the use of new technologies and
- enable your students to make a real difference through the use of technology
We will give teachers the opportunity to take part in a skills training day based on the needs identified in your School Digital Champion Application Form.
The project promotes hands-on learning and knowledge creation through the use of new technologies. When your students take part in the programme they will experience a technology challenge to engage them with real world challenges and solutions.
The programme will elevate digital skills and competencies while providing students with a wide range of opportunities. Students will be given the opportunity to visit leading technology companies and see first hand how they operate.
Students will also be provided with the opportunity to take part in a skills training day where we will provide workshops tailored to meet the needs identified in their School Digital Champion Application form. Students will improve key skills including critical thinking, innovation, creativity and team working.
