How does it work?
Children take a fun yet educational quiz covering eight separate topics to test their digital literacy. Working at their own pace they can come back to the quiz as many times as they like until they complete it.
On successful completion of all topics with a minimum passing rate of 80%, students are awarded a Digital Licence and can print out a certificate.
Teachers and parents get access to the quiz, current digital articles, understanding concept guides and additional engagement activities to keep up to date and connect with the child/student in the digital environment.
