We were absolutely delighted to hear that ProjectEVOLVE was selected as the winner for the Digital Leaders Impact Awards in the Education category, last Thursday. Our very own Ken Corish (Project Lead) and Will Earp (System Design Manager) travelled to London to attend the ceremony at the Ministry of Sound.
The night was filled with excitement as companies joined to celebrate the technological innovations that had been seen across the UK. Aside from education, the awards also celebrated those projects that supported Mental Health and Wellbeing, Employment and Skills, Social Transformation, Financial Inclusion as well as other areas.
Over the course of its development and subsequent release, ProjectEVOLVE has seen an immense amount of support from schools and other professionals who work with children and young people. The digital toolkit has assisted schools with educating around online development, as well as analysing where the gaps are in children’s understanding around these essential topics.
Ken Corish (Project Lead) said:
ProjectEVOLVE has been a significant part of our work here at SWGfL and we are delighted to have the recognition this award affords us. From the whole team, we thank all of the 30,000 users who have registered; used a classroom activity; created a knowledge map or just taken a look at a resource.
Your support has meant the world to us and we hope ProjectEVOLVE will continue to support you throughout your teaching journey. We also would like to extend our enormous thanks towards Nominet for their faith in the project and their ongoing support of the toolkit and the work of the UK Safer Internet Centre. Thank you so much!
