How can you use it?

Unsure how to start or advance the integration of technology in your organisation? This training course will help you to develop the knowledge and confidence needed to facilitate a Digital Learning Planning process within your organisation and build an actionable 3 year plan.

Why was it developed?

The Skill IT – Digital Pathways for Youth Work Project identified that digital learning planning resources and design thinking resources are mostly aimed at formal educational institutions, or non-profits not specifically focussed on youth.

The course has been developed to help youth organisations or non-formal youth education organisations apply design thinking to develop a strategic Digital Learning Plan.

The training course and tools are informed by international best practice. It draws on the European Framework for Digitally-Competent Educational Organisations and the Irish Department of Education and Skills Digital Learning Planning for Schools.
