Digital Leaders

Welcome to the Digital Leaders' Page. We are delighted to announce our latest recruits from Year 6.  You can see what we have been up to below! 

 

Our digital leaders are currently bringing our corridor displays to life, with flying kites, talking postboxes, dancing cola bottle and singing poppy wreaths! To view their work scan trigger images on the displays with HP reveal!

 

Soon we will be receiving a 3D printer and the digital leaders will be testing it out before classes have a go at 3D design.

To finish the year, digital leaders made friendship videos with apple clips. Have a look below!

What are Digital Leaders?

 

A Digital Leader is a pupil who is part of a Digital Leaders' Team within school, whose role it is to support the use and to further the development of computing in school.

 

The team is assembled upon application and interview, and will meet once a week during lunchtime.

 

Pupils are then given training and support to develop specific areas of computing expertise. These areas of expertise can be self determined, or may be a particular request for a specific item of hardware or software.

Once a pupil gains an area of expertise, staff may then request the use of the Digital Leader for a variety of different functions e.g.

 

  • Test and review new computing resources, which could be websites, software or hardware.
  • Share their skills and expertise with other pupils, classes and teachers via lunchtime drop in and a dedicated digital leader blog.
  • Set up computing equipment in classrooms for teachers.
  • Lead computing clubs.
  • Support teachers in using computing in the classroom.

 

  • Provide first line Technical Support in school.
  • Staff Trainers.
  • Create how-to video help guides for the website
