iSTADIA.tv is starting an extremely rewarding scheme which aims to provide a range of services to improve the educational outcomes of young people at risk of underachieving. This could be due to a lack of skills, confidence or even a shortage of opportunities.
First and foremost, the objective of this project is to raise children’s basic digital literacy skills through using technology, such as LED screens, digital microphones and broadcast cameras and partaking in sports. The team are looking to combat the risk of disengagement and early exit from schools.
This is a 6 week scheme and will start in the form of a pilot for schools in Bridgend, Merthyr Tydfil, Torfaen and Rhondda Cynon Taf. More info here digital literacy programme 2015
