Digital Strategy for Schools: Consultation with young Comhairle members

June 6th 2014:
Digital Hub, Roe Lane, Dublin 8

Young Comhairle members from all over the country were recently involved in another really exciting consultation. A new digital strategy for schools is currently being developed by the Department of Education & Skills,  in partnership with the Department of Children and Youth Affairs. As part of the consultation phase, they were looking to engage with a range of young people, both primary and post-primary, to hear their voices and opinions on how technology should be utilised in the classroom, since the use of technology impacts on the learning experience.
