DLTV is excited to be involved in the Digi-Tech Start-Up Grants initiative, which will see 150 secondary schools from across Victoria receive grants of $10,000 each. 

The grants will be allocated to support secondary schools with the purchase of equipment related to the digital technologies curriculum. The project will also include professional learning events for teachers of participating schools, which will be coordinated by Digital Learning and Teaching Victoria. 

In launching the project at Mount Alexander College on Friday, July 1, Minister for Education James Merlino highlighted the importance of digital technologies across the curriculum. “We want to make sure that our schools have the best facilities and equipment to give our kids the best chance to succeed. This funding will give more students the ability to learn hands-on with new technology and prepare them for the jobs of the future.”

Full details of the grants and application process will be published soon on the DLTV site. Stay tuned to our e-news for further updates.
