This blog post presents news of the launch of the Digital Leaders Programme at the 2010 SSAT Conference. The programme was built on ideas from Kristian Still of Hamble College and Daniel Stucke of Stretford High School. The pilot programme at these schools involved the recruitment of pupils who were provided with netbooks, a support network and training. They were given a brief to provide leadership in the use of digital technologies in their school and communities.
The pupils mentored teachers and supported staff development, raising teachers' awareness of potential uses of technologies in learning.
