In February 2015, Iona Presentation PS launched its inaugural Digital Leaders program with the appointment of two Year 6 students as Digital Captains.
These students, working with the ICT specialist, will help to promote and support students’ and staff use of technology, including support for classroom blogging, the development of Scratch programming skills, and the planned introduction of Google Apps for Education later in the year. The Captains are currently learning how to blog through participating in the Student Blogging Challenge.
In late 2015, we plan to expand the Digital Leader program into Year 5. Those Year 5 students who demonstrate leadership skills and a commitment to the program will be invited to apply for 2016 Digital Captain leadership positions.
