Digital Media programme for young people inspired by Future Creators launched

The ‘Creating Digital Pathways for Young People’ Conference, was held on Wednesday, 18th of January at the National College of Art and Design (NCAD) in Dublin, and focused on the sharing of best practise for developing the digital skills of young people.

The Digital Hub Development Agency, H2 Learning, Krzyzowa Foundation (Poland) and MFG Baden-Württemberg (Germany), alongside NCAD, have partnered to deliver a conference, at which the ‘Digital Skills Pathways for Youth across Europe’ programme was launched. This programme was inspired by The Digital Hub’s Future Creators Programme, developed by H2 Learning and NCAD. Learn more about Future Creators at www.thedigitalhub.com/projects

 

The collaborative project has developed an out-of-school digital media programme for young people, called ‘Digital Pathways’, which includes a package of resources for organisations and individuals working with young people all over Europe.

 

The project aims to provide teenagers with opportunities to develop a range of digital literacy skills including 2D animation, social media, sound, film, digital image editing and game making. It aims to inform young people of the wide range of possible careers in this evolving sector and to identify pathways they can follow into further education and future employment in the field of digital media. NCAD partnered with several local schools through their third level Access Programme to recruit participants for Digital Pathways.

The Digital Pathways for Youth across Europe is a project funded by Erasmus+ Programme of the European Commission through Léargas, the Irish National Agency.
