Digital excellence rewarded

More than one in five Irish primary schools has applied to become Digital Schools of Distinction since a programme was launched in September of last year.

The award scheme, sponsored by HP Ireland and Microsoft, gives grants to schools to encourage effective use of technology.

Schools that register and are successfully validated are awarded Digital Schools of Distinction status by the Department of Education. The scheme is a public private partnership.

The schools have access to an ICT helpline. They receive a Digital Schools Classroom Kit including a laptop with educational software provided and a range of suitable apps.
