Digital Leader Team
The Digital Leader network in school is continuing to grow as is the use of ICT at Cefn Fforest Primary. The Leaders have done a fantastic job over the past year and they have lots to look forward to in the near future.
The main priority at the start of this term was to appoint Digital Leaders and Digital Apprentices in the Year 4 and 5 classrooms. Last years Digital Leaders have now assumed the role of Digital Ambassodors and they have been looking through applications and conducting interviews in search for the appropriate candidates to join their team.
The Digital Ambassodors work throughout the whole school while the Digital Leaders and Apprentices work solely within their classroom to start with. The names of the successful candidates are yet to be revealed but, the Digital Leader team has now grown from 6 last year to 17 this year, ensuring coverage throughout the whole of KS2.
The Team will start training on Monday, focusing on apps most commonly used within the classroom. The Ambassodors will train the Digital Leaders and the Digital Leaders will then train the Apprentices. The Ambassodors have also been booked in to provide staff training, with visits to other Primary Schools also in the pipeline. There's plenty going on with much, much more to do. With the acquisition of more iPads and iPad minis, these are exciting times for the use if ICT to facilitate learning in the Cefn Fforest Primary.
