Digital Skills

Unleash Your Digital Creativity!

Be part of the Digital Revolution

We are in the middle of a second industrial revolution; a period in time where digital literacy and knowhow sit at the very centre of everything we do and who we come in contact with. It is widely acknowledged that there are gaps in the skills required to successfully compete in the local, national and international digital marketplaces and therefore the need to develop digital skills has never been so important.

Become creators of Technology

Our belief is that we should equip and empower young people to become creators of technology rather that consumers of technology. We do this by ensuring our courses and programmes of study are relevant to industry needs, fun to study and facilitate the development of technical skills and creativity.

Digital Technology is Everywhere

It’s hard to think of a part of our life that’s not touched in some way by this subject area.

It is possible for us to develop a portfolio of accredited units that can contribute to your final qualification.

We Fly Drones!

Be Aware That From July 30th...

You won’t be able to fly your drone above 400 feet or within a kilometre of airport boundaries. Anyone who flouts the rules could be charged with “recklessly or negligently acting in a manner likely to endanger an aircraft or any person in an aircraft”, and face an unlimited fine, up to five years in prison, or both.

Weight

The UK government recently announced measures that will require owners of drones over a certain weight to register their devices, as well as plans to bring in a test for new owners.

“We are seeing fast growth in the numbers of drones being used, both commercially and for fun,” said Aviation Minister Baroness Sugg.

We Build Robots!

Our robot has been made using a Freenove DIY Quadruped kit. It has 4 legs which are powered by 12 independent servo motors. Each leg has a hip and knee joint which allows it to move on its X axis forwards, backwards, left and right. It can also move its body Z axis up and down and in combination with the X axis, this allows the robot to rotate and tilt its body in any direction. It can be controlled remotely by a PC or mobile device such as a smart phone or tablet using Wi-Fi or Bluetooth. After programming the robot to move and crawl, the challenge was to enable it to be autonomous and self-navigate its surroundings. This was achieved using a PING sensor, which is essentially a small radar device that sends out an ultra-high frequency sound beam that reflects off objects, and with some clever programming measures the distance in cm.

Now that our robot is able to go up and down stairs autonomously the next step is for it to begin meaningful work on our behalf.

We Print 3D!

At Eat That Frog

We understand that keeping students engaged can be challenging, especially when the subject is difficult and requires hands-on attention. Incorporating 3D printing into learning, helps us illustrate difficult concepts and enhance engagement through interactive learning.

Printing

3D printing lets you touch, study, and take home products that you have created. It encourages you to be innovative and creative, you adjust ideas through trial and error.

It teaches you to think about objects in three dimensions, improves problem solving and critical thinking capabilities and ignites passion to develop a potential career in the majority of STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics) subjects.

We Speak Photoshop!

We provide bespoke 1:1 training for anyone interested in getting more from their images and photography. Training will cover the use of the Adobe Creative Suite, where you will be introduced to the concepts and practice of graphic design and illustration using Adobe Photoshop, InDesign, Illustrator, After Effects and Character Animator tools.

Throughout the training we aim to teach you the core principles with the aim to hone your digital skills to produce professional quality images. Furthermore, an introduction to Adobe InDesign will allow you to use your previously developed Photoshop skills to combine headers, text & image into professional design layouts for both web and print. You will learn how to enhance images using a variety of tools such as layers, selection tools and image retouching as well as illustration and graphics training from professionals who work in the visual communication industry.

The training allows you to be experimental and allows for the development of your own digital skills as well as creating professional looking documents for your portfolio to exhibit a variety of skills, knowledge and experience that will be essential to find work in the creative industries. This is a chance for you to learn the ropes of creative computing alongside those in the know, you will learn a variety of technical and creative skills that are essential in this exciting industry including; marketing, print, web and interactive media.
