The Catholic School of St Gregory The Great Believe and Achieve

Digital Leaders

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

 

The team is assembled upon application and interview, and meet regularly.

 

Pupils are then given training and support to develop specific areas of ICT 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.

 

As part of a team, the Digital Leaders perform the following roles within school:

 

  • Test new ICT resources, which could be websites, software or hardware.
  • Share their skills and expertise with other pupils, classes and teachers.
  • Maintain the ICT suite and monitor any problems.
  • Feedback to whole school on computing issues
  • Act as the student voice  with regards to computing

 

In the future we hoping to get the children involved in:

 

  • Blogging on behalf of the School a class or club.
  • Update areas of the school website.
  • Lead ICT lunchtime clubs.
  • Work with children from other schools on specific projects.
  • Carry out pupil conferencing
