The objective of the IT2Schools project was to create, develop and implement an IT Recycling project with to raise Money for a chosen charity.
Students have to work with the local community to recycle any unwanted ICT equipment through several different channels including social media campaigns, advertisements, handing out marketing material etc.
The recycling value of the items collected will be then handed back to Bolton College to then donate to BYPHS.
Bolton College Students split their project into 5 key parts:
Research – Students conducted research into the ICT recycling sector, marketing strategies and advertising.
Presentation – Using excel,PowerPoint and other ideas to present what they have found out.
Marketing – Online and offline campaigns were created to advertise the project. including social media posts, flyers and posters
Action – Students then went out and started to collect ICT equipment from their friends, family and local community. They were then tasked with organising drop of points and collection dates for the unwanted ICT.
Evaluation – information was then collected, analysed and then assessed with feedback from the students themselves and their peers.
