A program about people, then technology...

Technology that empowers us and puts people first simply means technology that helps us connect and share.  Indigital Schools program has been designed by Indigenous people using our Traditional ways of connecting and sharing, interwoven with new technologies.

....and respecting Cultural Intellectual Property

Indigenous language speakers and knowledge holders lead the  development of cultural content and are protected through a non-exclusive license for agreed use by Indigital and schools.

...and partnerships

The platform was brought to life through a collaboration with Microsoft, Telstra Purple and Indigital, three organisations committed to the creation of an inclusive digital future.

Indigital

Indigital is Australia’s first Indigenous Edu-tech company, specialising in technology development and digital skills training in augmented and mixed realities, artificial intelligence, machine learning, internet of things and geospatial technologies.

Our mission is to close the digital divide between Indigenous and non-Indigenous peoples, by providing a meaningful pathway for Indigenous people into the digital economy and the creation of future technologies. Together, we can use digital technologies to express 80,000 years of human knowledge for generations to come.

Indigital designed and developed our Schools program to empower the next generation with the skills and confidence to participate and shape future digital economies.

Microsoft

Microsoft is a technology company who partner globally with nonprofits, governments, educators, and businesses to ensure all youth have access to digital skills training and inclusive computer science education.  They have partnered with over 110 nonprofit organizations in 41 countries to reach millions of young people with quality digital skills and computer science experiences that pique interest in technology and spark excitement.

Telstra Purple

Telstra Purple is an Australian owned technology services business, obsessed with solving their customers’ most important problems.  They continuously innovate and place themselves at the fore front of next-generation emerging technologies, which are then brought to life by their passionate team who bring purpose to technology.

The Telstra Purple team also wanted to provide every child with access to Indigenous cultures, language and history in an authentic and creative way. Telstra Purple have provided Indigital with their time and expertise in AI-infused augmented and mixed reality development to build the Indigital School’s platform and application.

Relative Creative

Relative Creative are one of Australia’s leading strategic design agencies who help people think, talk and mobilise sustainable futures. They offer clients a passionate, interdisciplinary design studio with expertise in visual communication, service design, experiences and events, facilitation, critical research and public art.  They are serious about social responsibility, sustainability, social justice and equity and their practice exists within these contexts; as relative to just transitions in a green new world.

Relative Creative wanted to contribute to a broad conversation about the ethics of technology.  They have collaborated with Indigital to design and bring the Indigital Schools brand to life via a suite of communications tools.
