Digital Leaders - new resources and challenges!

Nov. 4, 2020

Digital Leaders are children with a passion for technology who want to share their knowledge with others and promote the use of all things digital throughout the school.  Our Digital Leader scheme is completely free for Purple Mash subscribers and all the resources you need are available in the teacher area within Purple Mash.

The resource includes:

  • Guide to setting up Digital leaders and how to get started
  • Hints and tips
  • Application form
  • Posters
  • Name cards
  • Ideas of what Digital leaders can do
  • Termly challenges

We understand that Digital leader schemes in schools look totally different this term, we have set up termly challenges and our new Digital Leader Blog within Purple Mash to support and promote digital leaders within school, these challenges can be done remotely or in school.

There will be two, or sometimes three challenges each term that Digital leaders can complete online, either in school or at home. The work can then be shared on our global Digital Leader Blog alongside any tips or advice as to how they created their challenges. The blog will also be a way that Digital Leaders can communicate with other digital leaders across the country and with our schools across the globe.

As well as sharing their work to a larger audience each month one school will be selected to receive a 2Simple goody bag and some Digital leader t-shirts!

We will also be sending a Digital Leader newsletter out a couple of times a term with an update to the challenges, competitions and ways that Digital Leaders can support within the school, to receive these make sure you sign up to our Digital Leader Scheme

We look forward to seeing the completed challenges and the creativity within the Digital Leader community. As well as sharing on the blog, you can also share your work and what you get up to on our Twitter or Facebook pages.
