Training your students to become Digital Leaders is a great way to ensure that technology is used effectively and appropriately in your school. We have worked closely with Kingsmeadow school in Gateshead to train and launch their first cohort of Digital Leaders. Over 2 training events we have trained the digital leaders on;
The realsmart learning portfolio tools
Google Apps for Education
and, how best to work with teachers
Each digital leader has created a website as their own profile using rweb in realsmart to share with staff in school. From these sites staff can easily see digital leaders expertise and interests. Their availability is shared through an embedded Google Calendar and staff can request an appointment through an embedded Google Form.
Digital leaders collect evidence of their own learning and support through their digital leaders passport where the staff coordinator can track progress and skills across the group.
The digital leaders at Kingsmeadow have also created their own Google+ community and connected with other Digital leaders nationally and internationally.
