Webinar: Students and digital leaders Webinar: Students and digital leaders

Students as digital leaders

17 December 2013

Students very often have more digital skills than teachers. However, in many cases this digital expertise is not used at its full potential for the benefit of all stakeholders in a school. Students can play an important role in the professional development for teachers and in a change management plan for a school.

In this webinar Bart Verswijvel will present 2 models for the students' involvement as digital leaders on a school level.
