Our Difference

Instructional Support
The key to digital skills learning stands at the head of the classroom. That's why BSD's mission is to empower teachers to teach digital skills, regardless of their experience or subject focus.

The future of work is


Digital skills education for schools

Not everyone will be a programmer, but everyone will need digital skills– they’re already
equivalent to reading and writing, and addition and subtraction.

Designed to overcome challenges

Students will need digital skills for their futures, but there are many challenges to teaching digital skills.
BSD overcomes those challenges by providing the tools, resources, and training educators need to make digital skills possible.
