Digital Leader Academy Plus - Cohort 1


The Digital Leader Academy Plus Programme has been created to enable existing Digital Leaders to continue their development after successfully completing the Digital Leader Academy Programme. It allows Digital Leaders to achieve some of the more difficult level 1 badges and some level 2 badges. A member of staff and 6 children who have previously completed the Digital Leaders Academy Programme attend 2 half day training sessions, a celebration event and receive a virtual school visit.


Our Digital Leader Academy Plus Programme enables children to:

  • Develop their communication and presentation skills taking into consideration the audience involved.
  • Demonstrate simple action plans to ensure they meet identified outcomes in an organised and effective manner.
  • Understand the concept of Online Learning and create their own Online Learning resources.
  • Develop their role as an ambassador for the school by collaborating and communicating effectively with other schools using Edmodo.

Included is full support for staff and children for a year through the online Edmodo platform and the award of Digital Leader virtual badges and certificates for achievements completed by the pupils.

Session 1 - 22.10.19 : Revisit their Digital Leader role as an ambassador, communicator and technologist through a formal presentation. Analyse and identify key aspects of good presentations and create and deliver a quality presentation to the group. Understand the need to develop and use simple action plans to ensure their Digital Leader activity is effective and begin the process of action planning to meet their school’s needs. Record their success regularly on Edmodo.

Virtual school visit - date TBC : Pupils will learn to set up a Skype call and relay the impact of session 1 on their school. They will also create a corresponding blog post to be shared on our Digital Leader Blog.

Session 2 - 28.01.20 : Pupils deliver a short and effective presentation on their Digital Leader successes so far.
