“Children are not currently being equipped with adequate skills to negotiate their lives online.”

Children's Commissioner, Growing Up Digital Report (2017)

“Whilst children and young people’s digital literacy has expanded, fundamentally children are often not prepared for the online world.”

The Byron Review, Safer Children in a Digital World

Improving life chances and well-being

Based in the North West, we work with primary schools,  secondary schools youth groups and adult training organisations in Manchester, Cheshire, Stockport and Macclesfield and beyond.

Our Digital Thinking Skills workshops are aimed at key stage 2 and key stage 3 and tailored to specific year groups. We teach participants to be curious and think critically about digital information – whether they are evaluating the credibility of a news story, thinking about the motivations behind the creation of media, or debating how algorithms influence what they see online. Our Digital Inclusion workshops are aimed at adult learners and we offer parent and family training too.

Sessions are fun, practical and participative, featuring real-world case studies, games, discussion and challenges. Participants learn essential search and evaluation skills that can benefit them in school, college, at work and beyond.

Face-to-face or online workshops can be commissioned for youth groups/services, local authorities, employers or parent groups. Get in touch with any questions or to find out more.
