Please note that this provision is designed for well established Digital Leaders and particularly those Digital Leaders who completed the Digital Leader Academy programme.
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. The programme consists of 2 half days face to face training, a virtual school visit recorded as a blog post and an end of year celebration event. At the end of the programme all pupils receive a certificate and a Digital Leader Academy Plus wrist band. Throughout the programme the children have access to the Digital Leader Academy Online materials hosted on Edmodo that allows them to communicate with other children and ourselves sharing their successes as Digital Leaders. They can also apply for Online Badges and certificates to celebrate their achievements as Digital Leaders and are expected to upload video and presentations as part of the programme.
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.
The Digital Leader Academy Plus Programme runs 2 cohorts over the year where a member of staff and 6 children receive 2 half day training sessions, a virtual school visit and a celebration event. Included is full support for staff and children for a year through the online education platform Edmodo and the award of Digital Leader virtual badges and certificates for achievements completed by the pupils.
Half day training session 1
Revisit their Digital Leader role as an Ambassador, Communicator and Technologist. Analyse and identify key aspects of good presentations, practice new presentation techniques and plan a presentation to deliver back at school. 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
Pupils will learn to set up a Skype call and relay the impact of session 1 at their school. They will also create a corresponding blog post to be shared on our Digital Leader Blog.
Half day training session 2
Pupils deliver a short and effective presentation on their Digital Leader successes so far and feedback on the presentations they delivered at school. They will investigate various forms of Online Learning content and discover how to use screen captured video to create short tutorial videos that can be uploaded to share with others.
Pupils share group and individual successes within their schools and become accredited Digital Leaders.
All training is delivered at the Innovation Centre and the cost of the programme is £450 (£360 for subscribing schools) for all the training above for a maximum of 6 pupils.
If you are a school / group of schools outside the Bradford Region please contact us to discuss delivering training in your local area.
