Pupils get into technology.

PUPILS in Rhondda Cynon Taf took part in an innovative workshop focused on digital technology.

Y Pant School, in Pontyclun, discussed the use of information communication technology (ICT) in the curriculum and their daily consumption of ICT in things like gaming, social networking and mobile phone applications.

The day formed part of research which will poll the views of more than 1,000 young people across Wales to feed into a digital skill manifesto that will be presented to the Welsh Government at Digital 2014.

Pupils aged between 11 and 14 discussed their perceptions of jobs in the digital industry and what they felt their educators should do to encourage more young people to pursue careers in technology. Digital 2014 takes place from June 9-10. To register visit www.digital2014.com.
