An impactful project
It’s no secret that I am a big advocate for student voice through the digital leader initiative. I’ve worked hard on the digital leader initiative over the years, having set up the digital leader network alongside Sheli Blackburn in 2007. My free book on digital leaders available from the iBooks store has been massively popular. I’m proud to have had such a big impact on digital leader groups in the UK.
I’ve seen the initiative become huge success stories for those schools that develop student digital leader groups. It was a natural progression from this that I developed the digital leader academy to try to bring more schools together to incorporate student digital leaders into their communities. This led to me starting my first Digital Leader Academy in North Tyneside following my support of the launch of the RTC (Apple Regional Training Centre) at Stephenson Memorial School in North Tyneside in June 2015.
