Back in January I wrote a piece about teaching users to produce rather than just consume technology. I have been trying to help young people produce (and gain a deeper understanding of) tech rather than consume tech by running a Code Club. However today I got given another great opportunity, I get to be a Digital Eagle. As most of my readers know, I enjoy volunteering in tech related subjects and enjoy sharing the knowledge I have.
The organisation I work for is working closely with Barclays so that it can have it’s own Digital Eagles. These eagles can support staff, customers and members of the public in areas such as digital security, coding and digital lifeskills.
I’ll update when I get more information / experiences as a Digital Eagle.
