Commissioner's Message

My Digital Challenge is now entering its sixth year, having commenced in 2019. Students from over 200 South Australian Government, Catholic, Independent schools completed one or all three of my annual digital Challenges last year, with this number increasing year on year.

Our future requires bold thinkers who know how to create intelligent out-of-the-box solutions.

If you're a young person, take my Digital Challenge today!  You can do one, two or all three of my Challenges to gain skills that will go toward your digital literacy, so that you can be confident you have what it takes to be a digital citizen in this technologically driven world in which we all live.

If you're an educator, register now to get the Challenge happening at your school.

If you're a community group leader, run the Challenge in your group. Scouts and Guides can earn cloth badges. If you're a member of the Children's University Adelaide you can gain accreditation in your Passport to Learning.

If you're a librarian, register your library and run the Challenge after school or as part of your Library's School Holidays Program. Promote the Challenge using the free posters and graphic assets that are supplied.

If you're a Home School, run the Challenge in small groups of 10, or as individuals with members of your Family at Home.

If you're a school or student from interstate or overseas, you are welcome to complete the Challenge too! You'll earn a Certificate of Achievement just like every South Australian student who completes the Challenge.

Let's work together to encourage as many children and young people as possible to take a journey towards digital empowerment in 2024!
