Incredible events just for our Digital Leaders

At iTeach if there’s one thing we’re proud of its our iTeach Digital Leaders. Tens of thousands of pupils at all ages and levels who help lead digital learning in their schools.

They help their peers, teachers and family in all things digital, take on huge responsibility and are specially trained and rewarded – becoming beacons in their own schools and ambassadors for their school at events.

Our Digital Leader Labs initiative takes this one step further. We believe that our Leaders should work together across schools, should have access to amazing activities to stretch and challenge their thinking. We believe they should share good practice just like teaching staff and should be able to guide and mentor others – across primary and post primary. We believe that when Digital Leaders work together, we will see huge impact in all our schools with digital technology and learning.

Inspirational, Motivational and Challenging

Kicked up with a short inspiring keynote to set the tone for the event, Labs are then full of hands on group based workshop activities. Pupils are rotated throughout the day and focused on activities which span multiple skills, all with clearly defined outcomes. With an emphasis on Creativity and collaboration, pupils will be stretched and challenged throughout the day.

Local, flexible and accessible

Labs runs as a central event for up to 200 Digital Leaders with a £10 per pupil fee, but is also available to run in your area – funded by school, parents or your local authority or even sponsored by a local business. We’re flexible to ensure as many Digital Leaders can join us. If you are interested in running your own event, get in touch and our team will show you how this can be achieved.

Plus – to allow as many Digital Leaders to collaborate we’ve also created Hubs.

Become a Hub

With so many iTeach Digital Leaders, we want your help to be come one of our Digital Leader Hubs. Collaboration, Creativity, Sharing ideas, training others and hosting events for local schools – thats what we strive for with our Hub schools. As a Hub School, you’ll need to commit to hosting at least two events per year and invite Digital Leaders from a minimum of five local schools to work with your DL team on activities and challenges. We’ll help by providing the structure, resources, activities and guidelines for each event. You must have iTeach Digital Leaders in place in your school for this academic year as a minimum and be willing to showcase their work on line with a website, blog, vlog or iBook. Our Hub Schools should be the best of the best and will be recognised as such.
