Supporting the younger generation

Funding level: Up to £1,000

Description

We at 1st Woodville (St Stephens) Scout Group are committed to developing our young members into the citizens of tomorrow. This includes developing their digital literacy and teaching a range of ways to use technology safely, respectfully, responsibly and securely. This also includes ensuring they understand how to protect their online identity and privacy; recognise inappropriate content, contact and conduct and know who and how to report concerns to.

Recently the Scout Association in association with Vodafone launched a Digital Manifesto which sets out six goals for Scouts, including using digital to aid learning and develop new skills; sharing findings online and inspiring others; balancing screen time with outdoor activities and staying safe online.

This has also resulted and the creation of two new badges that Scouts can earn - the Digital Maker and Digital Citizen Staged Awards. In order to deliver a rich and engaging programme which meets the criteria laid down in the digital manifesto we need to provide our young people with access to digital technology as well as up-skill our adult leaders.

We are therefore fundraising to kit out a new digital zone at our HQ, comprising of computers and digital learning accessories to kit out our new digital learning zone which we are hoping to then also make available for other groups to access.
