Making Ireland Click is a TV series on RTE and a website dedicated to helping people to do more with digital. The site contains over 100 resources and courses to help people get started online, do more if you already use the Internet, and help others learn digital skills. As well as resources, the website features a few of Ireland’s citizens who have taken the first click, in a series of online-only mini-documentaries along with new inspirational stories from individuals who have taken the leap to getting online.
Making Ireland Click is a campaigning four-part series, guided by Ireland’s Digital Champion, David Puttnam, as we explore the need for every citizen to be digitally literate. David’s aim is to encourage all citizens to do more with and embrace on-line technology in the way we live our lives at home, at work and in the way we educate the current and future generations.
