Jack Chatfield (17) from Ryde who is a first year Level 3 I.T. student at The College has been selected as a Student Digital Champion.
Student Digital Champions are selected by a panel of judges from the pitch submitted by the students which details their ideas for an application that would improve college life and/or outcomes for students in further education.
Jack will be involved in an outstanding opportunity that will deliver a unique perspective on how technology impacts Further Education. Funded and delivered by CAE Technology Services with the support of the World’s leading ICT manufacturers, and directly addressing recommendations from the FELTAG report, the digital champion program is a new and innovative approach to engaging students.
I was surprised but excited to be selected to take part in this project as it’s a fantastic opportunity for me.Jack Chatfield, 17
The program will allow access to exceptional resources and an exclusive community, helping Jack to deliver the best outcomes from the use of technology and helping to transform him into a digital leader of the future.
All applicants had to complete a 500-1000 word document or alternatively prepare a short video lasting no longer than 5 minutes, which detailed their ideas for an application that would improve college life and/or outcomes for further education students. The ‘elevator pitch’ should describe what application would do and the benefits it would provide.
A short statement was also produced by Paul McKillop, Jack’s tutor at the College supporting his role as a Student Digital Champion.
I am delighted for Jack. He is an ideal candidate to be a Digital Champion and I am sure he will represent The Isle of Wight College very well.Paul McKillop, Computing & I.T. tutor
