JToday the 12 Digital Leaders, accompanied by Mrs Harte, Mrs Fraser and Mrs Jewitt, visited the big city of Newcastle to have a session with one of the ‘Creators’ in the Apple Store.
The children were a pleasure to be with, showed great enthusiasm and were brilliant from the start of the trip to the finish – thank you Digital Leaders.
They become movie directors and made their own short trailer (some need a little editing!) and then used a device called ‘Sphero’ which I have a feeling may be added to some Christmas lists!
Some of our Digital Leaders experimenting with Garage Band – thankfully all of the children had headphones!
Here are a selection of their tracks!
Friday 4th October saw a start of something amazing at Ashley Primary School…
Our first ever set of Digital Leaders were announced in assembly and presented with a certificate and a special badge so that everyone around school knows who they are.
The role of Digital Leader was highly sought after, so much so, the children had to apply for the posts (there is no wage!)
The Digital Leaders will be trained to expert level in all things Purple Mash, they will be able to help children and staff with simple problems and will assist Mrs Jewitt to monitor and maintain computing equipment. We are very excited about this new endeavour and are sure that the roles will evolve as the year goes on.
