Digital Leaders are pupils trained to be experts and advocates of using appropriate technologies in schools allowing them to act as ambassadors and peer mentors for staff, students and parents. This has resulted in a range of connected technologies and pedagogies
used effectively to raise self esteem, improve attainment, develop communication and collaboration skills, independent learning and engagement across the curriculum.
Our Digital Leader Academy Programme enables children to:
- Describe and model the safe and responsible use of a range of technologies.
- Demonstrate appropriate knowledge and understanding of specific technologies relevant to each school context.
- Exhibit good communication skills and collaborate effectively with staff and students.
- Understand the concept of ‘Student Voice’ and become a conduit for this across the school with reference to the use of innovative digital and mobile technology.
The programme comprises of 2 half day training sessions, a celebration event and a remote school visit via Microsoft Teams for a member of staff and 6 children.
