Pupils help build e-tool for young to share arts
7:40am Thursday 31st October 2013 in News
PUPILS from two Swindon schools have been chosen to help develop a national digital tool to enable young people across the country to share their arts and cultural lives online.
Funded by the Department for Education and Arts Council England and being developed by Trinity College London, Artsbox is an e-portfolio designed for five to 25-year-olds.
In particular it will support those taking part in Arts Award, the national qualification that helps young people develop their artistic and leadership talents.
Crowdys Hill School teacher Sue Welsh said: “This has been an amazing opportunity for our young people to contribute to something that is going to benefit other children and young people around the country.”
