What is Digital Education?
Digital education is the use of digital technologies to aid and enhance learning across the full range of subjects. It can be by simply using devices such as phones and tablets within lessons to give teachers and students instant access to online resources.
At MicroMaker we see digital education as the combining of subjects and resources to give students a real understanding of how technology interlinks with all subjects across the board and how it fits into everyday life.
We have created what we call the digital education journey. This journey is a process of developing digital skills in the classroom with the aim to see students become competent and innovative with technology.
This is where it all begins!
