This group has a representative from each class in P6 and P7 and meet each week.  So far the group has created help videos for use by staff and pupils as well as develop the skills to troubleshoot simple technical issues. 

However this week the group hosted an event for other Digital Leaders from schools across Edinburgh and the Lothians.

Over 70 pupils from six primary schools attended the event where they experienced a range of workshop activities including robotic coding using Spheros and creating cross-school iMovies.

During the morning, a Kidsmeet event took place for pupils from all the schools shared ways iPads have been used in their schools to enhance their learning.  As some of our pupils were in London, GWC pupils staged a ‘live’ video stream using ‘green screen’ technology, demonstrating their talents in filming, editing and collaboration.
