Bashforth, R. (2012) Bradford Digital Leaders Conference 2012. Inspiring third millennium learners. Blog post. http://bradfordschools.net/blog/lac/2012/07/03/bradford-digital-leaders-conference-2012/ (accessed 10-Sept-2012)

Digital Leaders from some of the 36 Bradford Primary Schools currently involved in the programme demonstrated how they can work confidently with new technologies; communicate ideas clearly, and in some instances help upskill school staff and students. Many had to undergo a rigorous application process to show they could take responsibility and commit to attending regular Digital Leader meetings. Many of these students have developed whole school improvement strategies using new learning technologies.

All of the young Digital Leaders at the conference were apprehensive at having to ‘power down’ when they transfered to Secondary School.
