New group of Future Creators begins
The Future Creators is an after-school digital learning programme for young people aged 13-to-16 years old from Dublin 8. It was established by The Digital Hub in 2011 and is delivered with the National College of Art and Design (NCAD) and H2 Learning.
The programme will run for 10 weeks, with workshops taking place every Tuesdays & Thursdays from 4.30pm to 6pm at The Digital Hub, Learning Studio. The young people have been recruited from schools in The Digital Hub’s local community.
The format is similar to last year, whereby, the young people will be equipped with a set of digital skills, including animation, coding, social media, digital image and sound manipulation, filmmaking, and robotics.
Through a series of taster sessions, young people will also get to discover new technologies by engaging in small collaborative projects in an atmosphere of challenge, trust, fun and friendship. Digital badges accreditation is now incorporated into the Programme.
