How to apply

​Inform the students about the programme
Please display the  posters which will be issued by the Education Centres to help inform your students about the programme . You should ask interested students to complete and give you a Nomination Form. The nomination forms are optional but are designed to help in selecting your School Digital Champions.

Select a team of Champions
A team of students (maximum 5) can be made up of interested students from different classes or from students in different years in your school. It may work well to choose a team with a mix of digital knowledge and technical experience, as well as a range of organisational skills.

School Digital Champions must complete a parental consent form. A signed copy of the parental consent for each student selected, should be returned to schooldigitalchampion@dccae.gov.ie 


Agree the project
Once the school has selected a team of Champions, the next step is to collaborate and agree on the digital project to be pursued 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 . Forms must be completed in full and approved by your School Principal.


Complete the Project
Students are asked to complete a project report and submit it by email to schooldigitalchampion@dccae.gov.ie. The closing date for completion of all projects is 7th April 2017 .
