Hayesbrook School

ICT young leaders project at Hayesbrook School

Interesting project that I had joy of being exposed to yesterday. Great use of appropriate technology to enhance the learning experience.

This exciting new leadership award enables students to gain valuable experience and responsibility within the field of ICT. Similar to the Sports Leaders Award, the YICTL is comprised of six units. Each unit develops a different aspect of leadership.

Some of the leadership tasks might include: support in ICT classes, support/ delivery to small groups, create resources for cross-curricular ICT, run ICT clubs/ workshops for staff and pupils, extended workshops for gifted and talented students, develop and maintain annual update news/ newsletter, run ICT clubs/ workshops in local primary schools, develop a student council website and forum (intranet).

Evidence for the award is collected, logged and presented through the e-portfolio (see link above). It can be in the form of text, video, images, sound recordings and more. To pass, all criteria must be met and sufficient evidence presented to your tutor/moderator.
