Engaging in Our Digital World

ADAPT is dedicated to delivering an impactful programme of education and public engagement (EPE) under the theme of ‘Engaging in Our Digital World’.

 ADAPT’s EPE programme aims to:

  • Empower the Irish public to engage fully in our rapidly-evolving digital landscape
  • Foster an interest in, knowledge of, and appreciation for the emerging technologies driving change in digital media and technology.

EPE Strands

ADAPT’s EPE programme is based on two inter-connected strands

Public Engagement Strand

ADAPT’s Public Engagement strand aims to engage the Irish public with experiences that incorporate discussion, dialogue and deliberation around the societal implications of future digital engagement. 

Education Strand

The Education strand aims to foster skills necessary for citizens and students to engage effectively in our increasingly digital world and to drive future developments in this rapidly changing field. 

Audiences

ADAPT delivers a suite of education and training programmes aimed at all levels of the education system, from primary school through to fourth level and continuing professional development.
