Digital Leaders Challenge 1

Hello Heywood Digital Leaders and welcome to your first Digital Leaders challenge of 2015/16!

In order to be successful Digital Leaders you will need to know what kinds of technology you have to work with in your school.

You probably know whether or not you have things like laptops and iPads but you may be surprised at just how much technology is hidden away, long forgotten by teachers and never seen by children.

Your challenge is very simple: conduct a whole school review of the hardware available in your school. Speak to teachers, ask (politely) to look in cupboards, boxes and drawers and do some top class investigating.

You might find cameras and video cameras, programmable toys and floor robots, old tablet or netbook computers, microphones, and loads more!

When you have completed your investigation, post the results of your findings on the blog. You could write about what you have found or upload some photos or videos to share your discoveries.

You have three weeks to complete the challenge. The deadline for Digital Leaders Challenge #1 is Friday 20 November 2015.

Good bye for now, and good luck!

    • Hi Amy,

      We are probably going to meet again in January, so it’s still quite a way away!

      I’m having a great time at the moment, thank you. I’m working with some brand new Digital Leaders in Manchester tomorrow, so I’m very excited about that.

      My favourite app at the moment is probably Photosynth. It allows you to put together a lot of photos to make a panoramic image. It’s really cool!

      When I was younger there were no Digital Leaders projects in schools, but I think being a Digital Leader is about experimenting with technology and trying out new things. That was something I always used to do, so perhaps I was always a Digital Leader…?

      I thought our training was great fun and it was lovely to meet all the new Digital Leaders.

      Mr. Mayoh.
