Digital Leaders at St Stephen's Juniors play a vital role in our Computing curriculum and in the use of IT across the school. 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! The Year 3/4 and Year 5/6 Digital Leaders meet Mr Stinchcombe alternate weeks for their training on this.
Another responsibility for the Digital Leaders is to ensure that the IT equipment is maintained. Each term, the Digital Leaders from two classes are on 'maintenance duty'. 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.
