Thank you to Zahra, a Digital Leader from Sarah Bonnell School

We recently enjoyed having Zahra, a Digital Leader from Sarah Bonnell School, who joined Childnet for a week as work experience. Zahra helped us with lots of tasks including editing our last newsletter of the academic year, filming for our upcoming Secondary module (to be released this week!) and inputting into our preparations for Safer Internet Day 2020. Thank you to Zahra for her hard work! Take a look at Zahra’s blog about her work experience with us and her inspiring blog about the work she has been doing as a Digital Leader over the past four years.


Digital Leaders give their thoughts on the Online Harms white Paper

Many thanks to all of the Digital Leaders who contributed their thoughts and opinions on the Online Harms White Paper which was published by government earlier this year. Childnet included the youth perspective of Digital Leaders in our response to the White Paper. Take a look at our blog which includes the full response from the Childnet Digital Leaders.

Many thanks to all of our Digital Leaders and teachers for all of their hard work this year. Have a great summer holiday, we look forward to working with all of our Digital Leaders teams next year and seeing the incredible impact that you make!

Please share with us what your Digital Leaders team have been up to and what they have planned for next year. Email [email protected] or tweet us @ChildnetDL #ChildnetDL to be included in the September update!

Updates from the Childnet Digital Leaders team

We will be releasing new modules on the primary and secondary training platforms this week!  These modules are focused on the topics of Digital Health, Wellbeing and Resilience and we can’t wait for Digital Leaders to try them out next term. We will also be rejuvenating the platforms over the summer so keep your eyes peeled for the new layout!
