The digital leader network collaborative blog has grown in a very short time and has proved to be a good place for teachers to showcase their digital leader’s great work. That is the whole purpose of the blog- to showcase, support and inspire others so that they may too employ digital leaders in their schools. Although my initial ideas about the network were very grand (linking schools across the UK and beyond) this is a solid start to spreading the benefits of having digital leaders.
So my pledge is to try and emulate Chris Mayoh’s success in Bradford, in Norfolk. I would also like to host a digital leader ‘kids meet’ (this should have happened last year) and hopefully get our children to the Bett Show. This can only happen with support from others – and once again my twitter PLN come up trumps with their enthusiasm and drive to make this work. Yes there are a few ‘negative disruptors’ out there (see a great post by Jill Duman), but they are a very small minority and are easy to ignore. Nobody in this project has claimed to be the owner, initiator or leader. It will be a successful project because of its collaborative nature and because it is a good idea!
If you are interested in learning more about the digital leader network, come and join in #DLchat on a Thursday night at 9 during term time. You will meet inspirational tweeters who have been there right at the start of this project: @ICTevangelist @ChrisMayoh and @MrsMeeks64. You will also come across hard working tweeters who have given up a lot of time and put a lot of energy into this project – @aknill @largerama @traceyab1 @gr8ICT @ashmrkenyon @mbrayford @mikeyjohncarr amongst many others.
Acknowledgement must also be given to @ICTmagic and @eslweb who often help out with archiving, @JenniH68 for her hard work with edmodo and @kristianstill, @MrStucke and @bobharrisonnet for their continued support and inspiration. Thanks also to @janwebb21 for giving us the opportunity to spread the word further.
