Digital Leaders at St Stephen's Juniors play a vital role in our Computing curriculum and in the use of IT across the curriculum. With new equipment, programs and apps being created almost every day, we need a core group of dedicated pupils to help keep the other children (and adults sometimes!) up to speed.
The Digital Leaders are required to test and trial any new equipment (E.g. Chromebooks and MicroBits) making sure that they have found the best way of using it before anyone does! They will get the opportunity to do this during a 'coding lunch' with Mr Stinchcombe.
Another responsibility for the Digital Leaders is to ensure that the IT equipment is maintained. Each week, the Digital Leaders from one of the Y5 or Y6 classes complete a 'maintenance timesheet'. This ensures that all iPads and Chromebooks are returned to their correct place and charged ready for the next class. With over 350 children using the resources, this is an extremely important responsibility.
