These materials will be presented to attendees by project partners from Ireland, Germany and Poland. Short workshops will be delivered on the day to give attendees a taste of how the Digital Pathways programme and CPD materials can assist them, to help young people in Europe develop digital skills.

Digital Pathways mentors delivered a CPD workshop to other tutors and organisations working with youth in Ireland.
The workshop took place on 16th December 2016 in the Digital Hub Development Agency in Dublin, Ireland. Participants had an opportunity to work from the Digital Pathways Programme session to create a short video clip. They also discussed how they could best use the Digital Pathways framework within their own organisations.
MFG Baden-Württemberg hosted a Digital Pathways workshop on 16th November 2016 in Stuttgart, Germany. The event showcased the outputs of the project and the works of the young people involved in the project. Further discussion focused on the challenges of delivering the digital media training in various education settings and followed by an introduction to some of the tools and technologies used in the Digital Pathways Programme. Participants draw a picture using Autodesk Sketchbook and built their own game using Stencyl thus getting a real “taster session” of the Digital Pathways Programme themselves.
The second study visit for Digital Mentors took place in Dublin from 19th to 23rd October 2015.
The Digital Mentors from Germany and Poland travelled to Dublin, Ireland to work together with the Irish Digital Mentors on the development of the Digital Pathways Programme. They also had an opportunity to visit the Creative Lab in Dublin and meet with the young Irish learners and hear their ideas and feedback from the taster sessions. A part of the five-day long event was a joint discussion on the project showcase platform and different strategies to link together learners from Ireland, Poland and Germany.
