Students at Campion School in Bugbrooke were able to take part in a digital day with a difference.
The event, held on Thursday last week, was organised by Dodford-based firm, Electronic Chalk. They worked with Year 9 pupils to explore career opportunities within the digital world as well as to help the students to complete a D-Day challenge using social media. This saw them setting up a new fashion shop, creating a brand as well as a page on Facebook and a Twitter campaign. The digital day was part of a nationwide campaign launched by the British Interactive Media Association and this was the only one to be held in Northamptonshire. Electronic Chalk director, Jeni Cadman, said: “There is an increasing skills shortage in this area. This initiative is about making our young people aware of the varied and challenging opportunities available to them.”
