The Digital Leaders met for their first meeting of the term. We introduced ourselves then shared our ideas of the important knowledge and skills we thought were important for our whole school to learn.
Initial ideas to share from the Digital Leaders` group
-online safety, knowing safe sites, scams linked to emails
-passwords, how to create and keep safe passwords
-how to keep personal information safe
– looking after devices properly
-How to use ‘ReadWrite’ on Chromebooks
-Coding using Scratch
Our work links with UNCRC articles 12, 13, 15, 16, 17, 28, 29, 31, 34, 36.
P7 Leaders did a great job of showing younger pupils two of the functions of the Read, Write toolbar.
We recapped on achievements so far this term. Then the digital leaders discussed Term 3 activities which will focus on being a positive and responsible Digital Citizen. We talked about linking our school values to the digital world we use.
Areas we want to explore and discuss next term include
- Safer Internet Day Assembly
- permissions and family agreements
- thinking wisely about our choices when using digital technology
- what is a digital footprint?
- tools to help us be safe online
- looking after equipment properly
- efficient research skills

We finished the meeting with Innes showing us Flipaclip ~ an animation app.
9/10/19 Katie, Kate and Bhavya showed us how to use Chrome Canvas. We explored this app ready to share with our own classes.
We looked at DigiDuck’s big decision ~ an e~story about sharing images. We discussed importance of consent when sharing images. We will share this story with our own classes in Term 2. P5/6 pupils demonstrated Google Slides to P1-4 pupils. We explored the ‘Share’ button to show how we can work together on a document. Kate introduced ‘Interland’ to the P7 committee members to then share with the P7 class this term and P5/6 in Term 2.
