Year 6 Digital Leaders Update

Just before Christmas the Year 6 digital leaders were visited by Paul Scott from the innovation centre. He asked the children how their leadership was going and what they had been doing in school.

He then blogged about us on the Currciulum Innovation website. This can be found at; Curriculum Innovation Blog

St Paul’s CE Digital Leaders

st pauls ceA few week ago I visited Jen Charles at St Paul’s C.E. Primary school in Wibsey. Her children had attended cohort 1 of our Bradford Digital Leader Academy in September and this was my chance to catch up with her and the Digital Leaders to see what they had achieved since the training.

The Digital Leaders are Jack , Bailey, Owain, Hashim, Luke and Jake and they were all very enthusiastic with their responses and with their roles as Digital Leaders. One of the first activities they undertook was to share what they had learnt at the training sessions and explain their roles as Digital Leaders and what they expected to be doing across the school. To support this the children are regularly updating their school blog with posts about their activities and have pleased to get several positive comments on the blog about their activities.

The DLs have been ensuring that laptops are available for use on a morning, that they are well looked after and locked away appropriately when not in use and on charge for the next group.

At the moment the DLs are meeting sporadically but they have plans to meet on a more regular basis after the Christmas holiday. The children are familiar with Edmodo but intend using it more often to feedback on their activities and collect their online badges and certificates.

The children have already been actively working on promoting E-Safety at school by delivering at a whole school assembly. In the assembly they covered password security including passwords safe and checking the strength of their password online at howsecureismypassword. They also looked at keeping safe online by avoiding online scams and being careful when doing image searches. They even discussed the idea of looking for copyright free images.

The children are planning on doing more blogging about what they are doing in the Spring term to share with the community and their parents.
