eLeader and Media Manager Training Day
“On 20 February, the Technologies staff hosted the eLeader and Media Manager training day for all students who were lucky enough to be chosen for these roles. We started out with a prayer, ‘Wonder and Awe’. We related the wonder and awe that comes with learning about technology and the strength technology has to grow our world and views. Badges were presented to all members to acknowledge them as leaders.
Staff and students worked on getting to know you activities and considered what it takes to be a good school leader. Students with previous experience worked with the new members to teach them tips and tricks for using technology around the school. This day was very important as we all learnt vital skills so that we can assist both staff and students in their use of IT. We also worked with the Virtual Reality headsets, looking up videos that relate to topics we cover at school, as these will soon be available for all classes to use.
During the afternoon session, the eLeaders and Media Managers broke into separate groups to begin working on projects for the year. Mrs Bird, the Media Managers and I brainstormed events to run throughout the year. Mrs. Damiris, Brillant (my fellow ICT Captain) and the eLeaders, focused on planning for Technologies week which will be held during Term 3.
Our day was full of interesting information and we were also treated to a pizza lunch with little sweet treats.
Thank you to Mrs Damiris, Mrs Bird, Mr Martin and the IT support staff who made this training day a wonderful experience.”
