What kind of digital maker is your child?
Digital technology is an everyday part of life for most young people. What’s often given less attention though is an understanding of how to create and manipulate the underlying technology behind the websites, apps and gadgets they consume.
Digital making represents a diverse range of activities, from programming on a computer to designing and printing 3D objects.
Our landmark study on the UK digital making landscape reveals a strong appetite for digital making but we believe more needs to be done to nurture this enthusiasm.
As technology shapes our world, young people need to be able to shape it too. We need to engage young people in way that’s relevant to their own hobbies and interests, offering up new avenues for creativity and self-expression while teaching them the valuable skills they need to navigate an increasingly tech-dominated landscape.
