Digital Heroes is an immersive digital digital skills programme for communities. The programme is designed to increase children’s creative thinking, digital literacy and build their confidence, aspiration and wellbeing. 

The first Digital Heroes Programme was held in the London borough of Lambeth in 2022. You can find out more about Digital Heroes 2022 here.   

In 2023, we continued to work in Lambeth, as well as launching Digital Heroes in Newham. Click here to find learn more.  

For Digital Heroes, the iOi collaborates with community organisations to deliver inspiring workshops to local children. Sessions take place at the community venue, either after-school or during the holidays. Children learn to use a variety of exciting technologies such as stop motion animation, creative coding, virtual and augmented reality. 

After the initial workshops, the iOi supports partner organisations to deliver further creative workshops in their community setting by offering training, resources and loaning or gifting technology and materials.  

Digital Heroes has now concluded; however, it is part of the iOi’s active Communities Programme. You can find out more about the iOi’s Community events such as My Big Idea here.
