Digital School of Distinction

In October 2020 the EU Commission confirmed authority for use of the EU Logo on Dublin West Education Centre’s digital schools’ award – Digital Schools of Europe.

The award’s evaluation criteria have been updated in line with developments and advancements of digital technology engagement in teaching and learning.


The Digital Schools of Distinction Award and flagship scheme, DSoD, under the DES, has now finished its first successful cycle of implementation with Dublin West Education Centre and will no longer be accepting new registrations from schools.

Criteria for the New Digital Schools Award have been compiled and chosen and our new website will be live shortly for schools to apply for this transformative and exciting Award in 2021.

We look forward to once again engaging with schools all over Ireland and to Awarding Digital excellence, innovation, creativity and transformation in new Green, holistic  and Sustainable ways that promote wellbeing and digital futures in whole-school communities. 

Ag súil go mór le bualadh libh go luath.
