We are delighted to launch the toolkit at the inaugural Digital Citizenship Summit Ireland, April 28th, 2018.

This toolkit project took many twists and turns, and builds on the engagement and testing of ideas and tools with a broad range of teachers, educators and trainers over a 12 month period, involving nearly 100 people. It is the product of many workshops and group consultations both online and offline, and leads out of previous digital learning projects, including the Let’s Talk Project and the Minecraft/Sustainable Development Goals initiative.

We are hugely grateful to the individuals and groups who took time to get involved and share their views and challenges within and around digital citizenship education:
