Students sharing Leadership within school

 

 

  Within our schools these are some of the things our TEKids have been doing in order to share their leadership and further develop their expertise.Students are becoming confident when transfering their ICT capabilities in new situations.

  • At Somerset Crescent opportunities have been offered to teachers of all levels for the TEKids to come and share their learning in class with topics such as Voicethread and Spicynodes. Students, with support, have planned these sessions.

  • A new hall sound and AV set up at Somerset Crescent has seen some technical difficulties for staff. The Tekids have been trained up on the set up and use of this now and are called upon to organise assemblies and the like.

  • Questions and Answers are available to our wider cluster audience and community on the TEKids blog via our Wallwisher.

  • Lunchtime sessions where children create and share new e-learning, for example St James has run animation sessions based on learning from 2011 - this will also assist with children using animations for digi awards this year. The year 6's have supported TEKids in this as they are confident to transfer their ICT skills and knowledge. 
  • Both Kate and I have noticed the TEKids 'stepping up' within the school and classroom setting when other students and/or staff are having difficulties. This unplanned and informal sharing of knowledge is becoming more evident and a good indication that their confidence and skills are developing further.

    At Terrace End the TeKids have shared their e-learning at school assembly.
    Teachers are aware of who they are and can call on them when needed. It was
    good to see the confidence of the children as the talked about their learning.
    There has been some technical difficulties with using this sharing methods and
    more effective use of our TeKids is coming up for discussion amongst staff.

    The TeKids have been active in their teaching other students by holding lunchtime tutorial sessions. We have made the expectations about their learning and sharing explicit and informed their caregivers of these expectations.  By making the TeKids more accountable in requiring them to actively share their learning we have seen them step up to become leaders and not just learners. The planning of these sessions for the TeKids has at times been challenging as they have had to be reasonably independent in this and for some this was a big step to take. However this has led to them being more aware of their own capabilities and I think sometimes they have been surprised about how much they can teach to others.  The incidental learning involved in their planning and public speaking skills and confidence to undertake these challenges has been particularly impressive to see.   These lunchtime tutorials have had positive impacts on other students too by allowing students to participate in these.  Empowering those that are truly interested in ICT and E-learning by encouraging their involvement they are taking their learning back to the classroom and in turn are also becoming leaders.

    The students have become enthusiast users of different search engines and have a greater awareness of the ways that advertisers use these engines.
