Let the sifting begin…

Monday’s deadline has arrived and the ever increasing pile of applications needs sorting.  I’m looking for many qualities in my Digital Leaders.  Over the past few weeks I  have looked at many excellent blogs of teachers and educators who have begun their DL journey and very kindly posted examples of the job description, application and interview forms etc.  Blogs such as:

The very helpful Chris Mayoh http://mrmayoh.bowlingparkprimary.net/tag/digital-leaders/

And the brilliant Sheli Blackburn http://www.digitalleadernetwork.co.uk/

These and others have given me the guidance and encouragement to set up our own DL’s in school.  I have tweaked, merged and added to their documents to make them relevant for my school setting.  Kristian Stilll has very kindly allowed me to adapt his fantastic logo to that which has our school colours too – thank you!  See below for the selection of documents I am using to get this project of the ground (I’ve left them as word docs to allow editing, should anyone want to use them).

The next stage is to sift through the 52 applications for the interview process.  Looking at their answers, I envisage the job not to be an easy one.
