Well done to our School Digital Champions who recently developed and App for use in the school as part of their project. The team received certificates of participation while showcasing the project at the Power Up 2.0 festival held in DCU on Saturday 13th May.
The initiative was introduced by the dccae and Department of Education and Skills to promote and develop the use of digital skills in a way that would impact their school or local community. The program was piloted last year and due to its success, was launched again this year.
The team consisted of TY and 5th year students, who have been working together since last November. The App contains consisting of weekly events, achievements, canteen menu, school calendar.
The students also participated in a competition run by RTE to make a one minute video about their project using video creation and editing apps.
