@Shelibb’s background to slow #dlchat
If you (and Digital Leaders) have been to BETT16, what did you find useful – pls cd you link to blogposts.
Can you (and Digital Leaders) link to the reflections of Digital Leaders having been to BETT16? Can we get comments between DLs and their findings in different schools…
Any reflections on how to improve teaching of Computing as a result of BETT16 (even if you haven’t been, there should be lots of useful findings for you from the hashtag # )
Any reflections on Hardware as a result of BETT16 (even if you haven’t been, there should be lots of useful findings for you from the hashtag # )
Any thoughts on the use of Digital Leader #OpenBadges in the next few months – including new level 3 badges. Especially as @makewavestweets win the BETT16 Innovator of the Year Award.

There is a lot going on – see here for DL related activities at BETT15.
I am going to be tasking my LLS DLs with gaining evidence for 2 of their badges at BETT15 –
Networker Badge / Level 2 (click to see details)
This fits with everything they will be doing on the day
Reviewer Badge / Level 2 (click to see details)
Their choice but perhaps tablets / computing apps / computing resources / latest tech working in pairs
(the full range of Level 2 badges is here with suggested evidence)
my roadmap links explain all about these and the badges on makewaves.
@Jodieworld’s post Digital Leaders at BETT – get involved in the conversation! – #DLsBETT15 outlines further activities.

6 Secondary Digital Leaders / Chris Sharples (@gr8ict) / Students & Head of ICT at Lady Lumley’s School
“We should be developing young people as much as the technology. Digital Leaders from Lady Lumley’s School will explain how they work as Digital Leaders in school; working with students, teachers and the eLearning Manager; earning DL badges and sharing their experiences on the Makewaves social media platform with other DLs in other schools as part of the DL network. Chris will give some insights to help you set up and nurture your own Digital Leaders if you don’t have them already and point you towards useful contacts, examples and resources on the DLN blog, Makewaves Digital Leader Network and www.gr8ict.com”

6 Digital Leaders / Matthew Smith – eLearning Manager / Chris Sharples (@gr8ict) / Lady Lumley’s School
Rather than describing their role or giving advice on how to set up Digital Leaders, this session aims to look at how to most effectively deploy your team of Digital Leaders, putting them at the heart of ICT strategy for sustainable and consistent whole-school development. The session will include overviews of example projects, delivered by the Digital Leaders themselves.

Hi to anyone following up #BETT2013 …
Will, Beth, Maddie, Jo and Mr S presented at the Stone stand.
DLN Talk here.
I have really enjoyed today. It was a great experience to speak in front of so many people and it was good to hear from others as well. It was really interesting to look around all the other stands (and collecting freebies.) It was interesting listening to Mr Rogers talking about using mobile devices in lessons. It was also good looking at the Windows stand at the tablets and looking into the use of them in school. Another thing I found great was having lunch with Johnny Ball! And saw Brian Cox talking live! Speaking on the Stone stand was great (even though the mic was not great) and it was something I had never done before. Overall I really enjoyed the day!
Going to Bett was an amazing. I am glad I was chosen to go down with Beth, Will, Maddie and Mr Sharples. The start of the day was early and cold. We soon warmed up so we where then happy. I have learnt that no matter how much of an idiot I think look, to other people you look confident and in charge even when things go wrong like squeaky mikes.
I went to BETT today and it was AMAZING! I loved the stalls, and the general layout of the place. I went round with Jo, and we picked up loads of freebies. But first we had our speeches, and I went up after Will. Because I had never held a microphone before, it kept squealing and squeaking because I was inline with the speakers. I was really nervous and my paper was shaking but I felt really proud once I had said my bit. The audience clapped at the end and we all felt happy that we had pulled through. We also had a chance to look at all sorts of laptops, tablets and software which was really inspiring and has given us a lot to think about. We also had a second speech at 1.15 which was a breeze after the first one! Overall, I had a really good time and would happily go again another year!
