Case Study

Eisteddfod yr URDD 2017

BLC and Bridgend College worked together to create a fun and engaging environment for young people to enjoy. The space was filled with the latest digital technologies to give young people an insight into different digital activities which could support them in future job opportunities.

Take a look at some of the fun things that went on throughout the week.

We decided to exhibit at the Eisteddfod with the aim of: 

  • Promoting digital, creative family focused, learning opportunities
  • Exploring and evaluating the most impactful and effective activities in preparation for future festivals
  • Creating new, innovative content in the Welsh language

The 'Creadigidol' area was created to excite young people in new digital technologies and give them the opportunity to trial and experiment with educational products used to enhance learning. 

In an attempt to capture some of the participants learning experiences we ran an online survey and captured feedback on what learners enjoyed most about their workshop experience:

' Fy hoff peth i oedd codio gyda'r LEGO, ges i lot o hwyl yn rasio'r robots.'
