Digital Leaders

Digital Leaders

 

Digital Leaders are pupil leaders/support for the technology that is used in schools. They are children who are interested and enthusiastic about using technology, with a willingness to learn and share. They spread good behaviour with technology, support teachers, support fellow pupils and are able to showcase what is possible. More importantly, they develop their own skills and become examples for what is achievable in school.

 

What can digital leaders do?

Suggestions from various digital leader initiatives:

  • Editing/adding to some areas of the website
  • Write blog posts for their class and comment on other blogs across the school
  • Reset/change password for children that have lost or forgotten theirs (Blogs, Purple Mash etc)
  • Plan and lead ICT club at lunchtimes and after school
  • Change photographs on the TV screen in the reception
  • Support teachers across the school when they teach ICT and use new hardware or software
  • Organise competitions e.g. a drawing competition in Purple Mash
  • Attend events and other schools to share ICT learning
  • Attend after-school training for staff and parents
  • Trialling new software

Giving the children ownership of the technology in school and a high profile, with the title, badges and official roles will benefit all involved. Digital Leaders can be trained to carry out specific jobs regularly or can support teachers when needed.

Promoting their role means that teachers and parents will take them seriously and the experience they get from this will be valuable, especially benefiting some pupil’s self-esteem.

Digital leaders can take part in staff meetings, parent meetings and can be on ‘duty’. You can use a rota to encourage the leaders to take responsibility for what they are doing each day. They can also be advocates and ‘champions’ of technology: demonstrating its use to the rest of the school.
