Bhavneet Singh is the Associate Principal at Quinns Beach Primary School in WA. She is without doubt a great advocate for putting yourself out there, innovating and leading change. Her involvement in TeachMeets and her presence on social media are well-known. Yet, what is probably less well known about @BhavneetSingh12 is her thorough and professional approach to empowering students with technology. She goes through the following process:
- Advertises the jobs to the students
- Provides a very detailed position description
- Has the students apply with an Expression of Interest signed by student and parent
- Interviews the students
- Ask for references from both teachers AND parents
- Appoints those suitable
Let’s just pause a minute and remember this is primary school. How authentic, though. How significant and important these roles become as a result of the process. And as a result everyone in the school benefits.
Perhaps anybody with doubts as to worth of Digital Leaders needs to have a look at Quinns Beach Primary School’s Digital Leaders on Youtube and for the full details of Bhavneet’s process, see this Digital Leaders presentation and supporting documentation here.
