Meeting Ireland's young digital generation

(04/04/2013) VP Neelie Kroes, accompanied by Digital Champion for Ireland, Lord David Puttnam, visited St Colmcille's Community School in Dublin – a school benefiting from 100 Mbps connectivity.

They met with pupils and teachers who showed them the different projects they are working on. 

Following that, Commissioner Kroes and Lord Puttnam visited The Digital Hub - an ambitious digital skills programme established by the Irish Digital Hub Development Agency (DHDA) in partnership with the National College of Art and Design in Ireland (NCAD) - to find out more about Future Creators.

The programme is aimed at developing young people’s digital media skills and, ultimately, encouraging them to consider a career in digital media or technology.  Participants – all aged between 13 and 16 – learn skills such as coding, film-making, app development and computer programming.
