On 7th February 2020 we’ll be holding the first ever Greater Manchester Digital Skills Day #GMDigitalSkillsDay.
#GMDigitalSkillsDay will encourage all people across the region to do something digital. As part of this event across Greater Manchester, Digital Futures will encourage schools and colleges by providing free to aces online resources developed by businesses and a formal GM Digital Skills Day tech taster day for schools.
Take a look at the fantastic activities below that you can use in different lessons to get your students excited about all things digital!
Everyone taking part is asked to share what they are doing by using the hashtag #GMDigitalSkills, and if you a school make sure you’re pinned on the map here!
We have split the resources by Key Stage but many are flexible and could be appropriate for other years groups or key stages.
It is with the support of our fantastic Digital Futures Ambassador businesses that we able to provide free resources and activities for schools and colleges. We’d like to say a huge thank you to everyone involved. Make sure you take a look at all of the forward-thinking businesses and individuals who have contributed below.
