Challenge 1, by Ava, Jakub and Oliver

16 10 2019

We are new Digital Leaders and we were recruited by the Year 6 Digital Leaders through an application form and interview process at the start of the school year.

We used Powerpoint to prepare an excellent assembly for our school so that everyone knows who we are and what we do. We have also worked with Year 1 and worked with the children to create and test their own algorithm with the Bee-Bots.

We decided to have a completely new Digital Leader display in the ICT suite this year and agreed on a Minecraft theme. We will be adding to our display over the year and keeping it updated with all of the exciting things that we will be doing.

On Monday 14th October 2019 we hosted an ‘E-Safety Information Stand’ at parents evening. We displayed National Online Safety user guides and safety tips for parents and guardians on a display board and we went and spoke to parents, guardians, teachers and school governors. We spoke to over 70 different people and signposted them to the e-safety pages on the school website and asked them if there were any apps or software that they would like more information about. Mrs Atherton will use this information to share user guides and safety tips about the apps on our list through the school website and social media pages.

Mrs Atherton has made sure that we have appeared on our school social media pages and we have updated our Hopwood Digital Leader blog and our page on the school website.




Challenge 3

9 02 2018

We were involved in lots of different activities for Safer Internet Day. We completed a lot of work with Rochdale Borough Council and their Safeguarding Children Board. We helped them with their Online Safety Week, which was the same week as Safer Internet Day. We were filmed sharing top tips to stay safe online, which was shared on social media throughout the week. We also helped them prepare an online safety survey and encouraged children at our school to take part. You can see what we got up to by watching our Animoto below.

  • A favourite app and how it can be used in school
  • Top tips for new Digital Leaders

So, all you need to do to complete this challenge is to share the title of your presentation in the comments section below. You might want to start planning your presentation, but you won’t need to share it on the blog just yet.
