European youth enhance their tech skills through visual arts and design

The National College of Art and Design in Dublin launched the “Digital Pathways” program to support youth in the process of becoming digital entrepreneurs. This free online resource offers students a curriculum to enhance their digital skills using technology related to visual arts and design. Beneficiaries will participate in diverse projects to increase their creativity, critical thinking and problem solving skills using graphic software and multimedia.

The Digital Pathways is composed by nine modules tailored for young people, youth workers and professors. The creation of the platform started in February 2015 and covers topics such as digital photography, game-making, social media, audio, animation, image editing, film and media production.

Funds for the creation of the program were obtained from Erasmus+ to support European youth increasing their digital skills. It was inspired by the Digital Hub Future Creators Program.
