We are a young foundation, but at the same time people with extensive professional experience. We founded Digital Creators to be able to implement projects independent of our daily business or scientific battles. We try to reach creators using modern tools and enable them to participate in the digital world. On a daily basis, we conduct teaching and business activities in various places, also on our own account. The Digital Creators Foundation allows us to gather in one place the best, developed over the years, experiences at the interface of education, technology and culture and share them with the society.
We often meet new, revolutionary technical solutions. The Internet is saturated with propositions and offers, and everything is only apparently available. Educators can read about what a great and practical virtual reality or online training is, but when it comes to taking practical steps, they don't know where to start. The foundation was established precisely to provide practice opportunities from the very beginning. We want to "fill in" the hole between the world of kickstarter and real people.
MISSION AND GOALS
Most of our activities are directed to those who teach others - both professionally and on a casual basis. Currently, the development of many industries and sectors of the economy and culture depends on two important factors: mastering the tools and technologies of the digital world (so as not to become a digital illiterate) and the ability to become an educator for others almost at the beck and call (to be able to share your experience). Despite the sincere willingness of many organizations and the people working in them, it is not an easy task. That is why we try to help in various ways, which we have described in four groups:
We conduct trainings, workshops and online courses - our activities are based on the blended learning model and have an open and closed form, as dedicated activities for companies. We all have at least 10 years of adult learning experience. We operate on the basis of proprietary methodologies, and we always prepare scenarios and programs with a specific recipient in mind.
We are also familiar with public speaking and active participation in conferences and congresses. We perform for small and large groups - wherever our knowledge and experience can be useful. We operate both alone and in duos. We play the role of evangelizers of the digital revolution in education and culture.
Over the years of work, we have collected a huge database of contacts, good practices and ideas. At the Foundation, we are happy to share this knowledge and help others in running their projects. We are also familiar with various forms of financing projects from external funds, as well as various methodologies of their implementation.
The Digital Creators Foundation was registered in 2019. For the purposes of its activities, the statute was adopted, which can be viewed below online or downloaded in .pdf format by clicking here .
