Starting Your own Digital Leaders Team

Starting Your own Digital Leaders Team | The Digital Revolution

I have been fortunate to run a very successful team of digital leaders in Mosspark Primary, known as the Tech Team, and I hope that this article will let you see, not only the benefits of having a Tech Team, but how to set up a digital leaders’ team with a similar model and run it so that it has a measurable impact in raising attainment through digital learning.

Great example of a teacher blogger giving details on a project.

Otter Tracks and Signs

Otter Tracks and Signs is a holiday post by a pupils at Burravoe Primary School. It gives tips for finding otters and a recount of seeing one.

It is lovely to see primary pupils posting about their learning during the holidays.

Queen bee hatching

Yesterday, we were inspecting the hive and I noticed that the bees were all surrounding the queen cell and chewing away the wax. This is what they do when the queen is about to hatch and they help her to escape.

What a brilliant buzzin blog, all about the schools bee hives. Some great videos, lots of information.

Oystercatcher Eggs

We have been finding Oystercatcher eggs laid in some unusual places in the school grounds. We are asking the children not to touch them in the hope that they will be incubated by the bird. This one was spotted in the planting tub!

One of the more unusual posts I’ve seen on Glow blogs.

What I think of my school

I like about this school is that the lessons help me to start to be smart and have fun and what I don’t like about this school is that the doors are really stiff.

This blog consists of short posts like this, giving voice to pupils about their school.


Sing alang tae the langest sang!

This is a lovely idea, classes are invited to join in with writing verses for classic Scots children’s song, The World Must Be Coming To An End.

Classes can send in their verses via email or teachgers can get an account and post to the blog themselves. Organised by Mr M (@athole) on Twitter

Sing alang tae the langest sang!


Health & Wellbeing at Morningside

This is a really detailed post about a learning session with primary 2/3. I  really enjoyed reading the post, somewhat amazed at how much went on. I imagine that parent would be delighted getting this view of their children’s classroom.

As an aside, lovely to see the use of featured images on the blog, this shows up nicely in the except created when I paste in the link to the blog here. It also shows in the latest posts section on the north Lanarkshire Home page:

I love the subtitle of this blog:

Children from across the city are Imagining Aberdeen as a place where children are healthy, happy and safe.

Our school partners are Bramble Brae Primary, Manor Park Primary, Riverbank Primary and Tullos Primary.

In phase 1 of our project 300 children have been considering life in the community, at home and at school and exploring the idea of human dignity. Phase 2, which will take place in early summer 2016, will see 20 children – our Imagineers – take part in a Mural Project which captures children’s vision for the city.
