Digital Day Last Years Agenda Example

The purpose of this document is to provide a template for Digital Day. It is meant as guidance only, to help inform how you run the day. For each of the items there are separate instructions and resources to help you get the best out of the day. Please tailor the times in the below agenda to fit the school day.

Three top tips to make your day run smoothly:
- If you're an agency, please ensure that you're in touch with your school before the day. Swap mobile numbers so it's easy to get in touch.
- Please arrive with enough time to prep and set up before the students are due for Digital Day.
- The school day may not fit easily into this agenda but the approximate timings for each activity are stated so you can amend as you see fit.
