      I will help people by showing them the things that they want to do that they really haven’t discovered yet….

      My question is for Mr Mayoh… how long have you been actually learning about tech?

      • Hi Princess,

        Thank you for giving such detailed responses to the questions.

        I have been learning about technology for my whole life really! And I guess I’ll be continuing to learn for the rest of it too. I think it’s important to constantly try to learn new things.

        Mr. Mayoh.

    9. What are you most looking forward to about being a Digital Leader? I am looking forward to learning new things about technology.

      Have you enjoyed your first training session? Yes I have and I’m looking forward to every single one of them.

      How do you think you will be able to support others to use technology in school? I could help them how to use apps, give instructions, show them how to make power points and print things off.
      Do you have any questions you would like to ask Mr. Mayoh or other Digital Leaders?Yes I would like to know how to download apps on the computer/laptop.

      • Hi Rylan,

        There are lots of ways to download apps and programs onto computers. Usually this can be done by finding an app online – you could use a search engine to find something useful – and then following the download instructions on the software website. It’s not usually that tricky.

        In school though it is important to check with an adult to see if you can download something first, as it might not be allowed in school.

        Mr. Mayoh.
