About Digital Leaders

Digital Leaders is a leadership programme for pupils in Year 5 and Year 6 at Handsworth.

Four pupils are recruited in Year 5 and these children continue as Digital Leaders until they leave Handsworth at the end of Year 6.

As part of the recruitment process, the Year 6 Digital Leaders devise questions for the application form, present a pitch to the Year 5 classes and – once applications are received – they shortlist and interview potential candidates.

During their two years as Digital Leaders, the eight pupils meet each week to:
  • Take stock of the digital equipment around the school
  • Discuss, plan and teach the Year 4 ICT Club
  • Plan and teach the Hour of Code to each class.
They also help to promote and inspire Computing across our school by running training sessions for staff, consistently modelling e-safety, leading assemblies, reviewing new technologies and filming events.

Teachers can book out Digital Leaders to help them in class or to show them how to use a certain piece of technology.

For the past two years, we have also been able to take our Digital Leaders to Tate Modern as a partner of the London Connected Learning Centre. Together, they host a day of workshops that combine art and technology.
Last year, Digital Leaders from across London explored the similarities between computational thinking, programming and craft through hands-on making using digital technologies and recycled materials.

Our previous  Year 5 Digital Leaders have become our Year 6 Digital Leaders. We are currebtly recruiting new Year 5 Digital Leaders. Watch this space to find out who they will be......
