What makes a good Digital LeaderHow do you become a Digital Leader?

The Henry Cavendish Digital Leaders are responsible for supporting teachers and pupils with technology. Children in Year 6 can apply to be Digital Leaders and we have an active team at both our Balham and Streatham sites.  In order to become a Digital Leader, children must complete an application, including a presentation (e.g. PowerPoint / Prezi), showcasing their skills and talents in digital technology.  They must also show how they deal with problem solving situations and their ability to communicate their knowledge successfully with a wide audience, from young children, to teachers and other adults. 


Our current Digital Leaders are:

The 2017 / 18 Digital Leaders have now left the school, however in September 2018, Miss Moosa and Mrs Muhammed will be selecting the new recruits!


What does a Digital Leader do?

Digital Leaders have many responsibilities. Some are on a weekly or regular basis, others are ad hoc when required.  Teachers often call upon the Digital Leaders to help in the classroom and they work closely with Miss Moosa (Balham) and Mrs Muhammed (Streatham), the Computing Lead Teachers, in delivering the Computing Curriculum and in ensuring that use of all technology across the whole curriculum runs smoothly. 

Here are some of the regular tasks that the Digital Leaders undertake:


What else do you need to know?

The Digital Leaders are independent, trust worthy and classroom role models. Given the nature of their role, they are extremely responsible and aware when it comes to online safety, and they have a responsibility to ensure that they (and other people) are using technology safely and sensibly.  They sign a contract at the beginning of the year to demonstrate their commitment to safe and careful use of equipment at school.  If you want to have a look at the Code of Conduct it can be downloaded below.
