Keeping IT in the Family

Project Ended

The innovative 'Keeping IT in the Family' educational comic-book initiative was initially rolled out in April 2008 as pilot project with Microsoft, it attracted an additional £38,000 funding from government agency Becta.

The vibrant cartoon series was designed to support children in helping their parents, grandparents and older family members learn IT skills – such as setting up an email account - and also to pick up some new educational tips. Cleverly, developer Citizens Online produced the booklet in an engaging and enjoyable format, as well as being an invaluable educational tool that illustrates the benefits of digital technology in an easy-to-understand way.
