The Digital Leaders

The purpose of the Digital Leaders is to enable the children to be experts and advocates of using appropriate technologies in school, allowing them to act as ambassadors and peer mentors for staff and other students. 

The Digital leaders go on a tailor made training course at The Innovation Centre where they learn 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.

Training Day 1

In session the children learn to Understanding the role of a Digital Leader as an ambassador, communicator and technologist. They investigated new technologies and some key areas of (e)Safeguarding.

Password security was investigated, this included using online software to determine how long it would take a password to be hacked. The children were challenged to create a password that would take a long time to be hacked.
