The YBE Digital Leaders Programme is looking for enthusiastic young people who like technology and would like to share what they know with others. The Digital Leaders Programme is aimed at young people who want to make a difference in their school and who would be willing to help those not so technologically minded. In some cases this may even be your teachers!!
You may or may not realise it, but you have grown up using technology from a very early age, to you it’s second nature. Adding a video to a powerpoint is child’s play to you. You are armed with a very special set of skills that some people older than you may not possess.
There are a small number of places available for those that are interested, you will be fully trained in the area of your choice.
The following roles are available:
•Social Media/E-Safety Consultant
As a Digital Leader you will be expected to take an active role in improving the use of technology in our school, it will involve meeting after school on a weekly basis to discuss what we are currently working on. If you would like more information on what the role of a Digital Leader involves, see Mr Heard in ICT03.
If you would like to become a Digital Leader, you need to apply in any digital format stating why you should be a Digital Leader, you could create an animation, a podcast, a graphic or a webpage, or you may simply email. You also need to indicate what role you are interested in. Whatever you do this should be emailed to Mr Heard at firstname.lastname@example.org
