Hello again Heywood Digital Leaders.
I hope you are nearly prepared for your KidsMeet presentations, as we’re only a few days away!
This is your final Digital Leaders Challenge of the year.
We have talked quite a lot about evaluating things in our roles as Digital Leaders this year, and your final challenge is all about evaluating your own roles as Digital Leaders.
To complete the challenge, every single Digital Leader needs to post a response on the Digital Leaders blog to let us know how you have found the whole process of being a Digital Leader. You can tell us about all of the things you have worked on and your ideas for the future. You will also need to answer the following questions:
What have you enjoyed most about being a Digital Leader?
What skills do you think you have improved by becoming a Digital Leader?
What would you like to improve further in order to be an even better Digital Leader?
What have you found challenging about being a Digital Leader? What has been easy?
Are there any specific things you would like to do next year as Digital Leaders?
Please also feel free to share any other ideas, and ask questions in return if you would like to.
You can begin your evaluations straight away, but please do not post them until after the KidsMeet, as you may wish to include some information about the event in your evaluations.
You might choose just to type a blog post, but you might also want to upload a presentation, a Bitstrips for Schools submission, an audio file or anything else that you think will get your ideas across clearly.
I look forward to seeing your responses!
We have decided our title for our presentation on the 6th July will be ‘Computer Masterminds!’. We have been looking at ideas and our presentation is underway.
We look forward to reading and watching your presentations.
Heap Bridge Digital Leaders- Tyler and Joe 🙂
We wrote some instructions for using Thinglink. Do you use thinglink in your lessons? We usually use it in literacy to describe a character of scene. There are some examples on the links below, but Class 7 also used in their topic and geography lesson for grid references recently.

Class 12 scene description

Here are our instructions…
Digital leaders at HeapBridge decided to choose the bebot for this challenge. This acted as a guideÂ for year 1 in their programming lesson as well as helping teachers realise they could use bebots for a range of lessons including literacy and maths.
Here are some examples of Morfos we have made for classes in our school for lesson prompts. Mrs Atherton then uploaded them in to Vimeo so they could be embeded on the class blogs.
Hello again Heywood Digital Leaders!
It’s Challenge time again. This one, however, is really quite different.
As you may remember from our earlier conversations, we will soon be holding a whole day KidsMeet event. KidsMeet Heywood 2015 will be held on Monday 6 July 2015.
At the KidsMeet I will provide lots of challenges and other fun activities for you to work through in groups.
In addition to these challenges, we would like every school to deliver one presentation to all of the other schools in the project. You will have access to a computer, big screen and projector, plus speakers if you require sound.
Your presentation can be about anything at all to do with your roles as Digital Leaders. You might decide to present about:
some or all of the things you have done at school since becoming Digital Leaders;
a lesson that you supported that went particularly well;
a piece of hardware, software or app that you have used effectively in school;
top tips for other Digital Leaders to be successful;
your favourite free web tools and how you could use them in school.
This week’s challenge is to plan your presentation and to leave a comment on this post with your presentation title but no more information!
Here are the rules:
Your presentation should last approximately 10 minutes;
Every member of your Digital Leaders team should play an active role in delivering the presentation;
You can use ANY method of presenting the information that you like. You may choose to use tools such as PowerPoint, Prezi, Keynote, ThingLink, Bitstrips, etc. to support the things that you say to the audience.
When you’re done, leave a comment on this blog post telling us what your presentation title is.
I look forward to hearing from you all soon.
Goodbye for now and good luck, from Mr. Mayoh and this excited young radio producer.
IÂ have made institution manual for an IPhone 5

Hopefully this will work this time, fingers crossed. We had lots of fun ‘playing’ with the bee-bots and would definitely recommend them for other children to use to help them with algorithms.
