Pupils learn about being digital leaders


Children learned about being digital leaders at a special event run by a village college.

Melbourn Village College invited 90 year five children from five primary schools to join 60 of its year seven children for the Digital Leaders day.

A team from the Specialist Schools and Academies Trust, led by Digital pedagogy expert Andy Williams, ran sessions looking at key questions surrounding the use of digital technology in supporting learning in school.

Children created blog entries and presentations which were shared with parents in an evening event at the college.

Melbourn Village College Principal Simon Holmes said: “It has been fascinating to engage the students in telling us what they think 21st century learning should look like. Schools need to ensure they make best use of the skills they bring and the possibilities that new technologies offer us.”
