What is a Digital Leader?
 
Digital leaders are pupils who are skilled in using technology and are able to share their expertise with others. 
 
 
The Digital Leader role can vary from school to school but in many cases pupils will:
 
Provide invaluable support to the ICT coordinator in school.
Run an after school / lunch time club.
Be e-Safety ambassadors. 
Trial new equipment.
Provide feedback and give advice to Governors.
Help to look after ICT equipment.
Promote the use of key resources such as School360.
Provide support in lessons to peers and teachers.
Contribute to staff meetings. 
Create guides and help documents for staff and pupils.
Share these resources using a school blog.
