2 weeks ago, members of the Curriculum Innovation team attended the Naace Conference 2013 in Leicester. One of the highlights of this international conference are the ICT Impact Awards which celebrate effective use of ICT that has had a proven impact on learning whether it is children or adult learners.
This year saw nominations and shortlisting for both the Curriculum ICT team in the Curriculum Support Service Category and for Chris Mayoh (a member of the Curriculum Innovation Team) in the Primary Impact Category. In all the award categories there were some very strong contenders and making a final choice by the judges must have been extremely difficult.
The Curriculum ICT team were nominated for the following reason:-
‘For the support offered by their Curriculum ICT team, ensuring their schools are kept up-to-date with new initiatives and encouraged to implement new technologies, such as the Digital Leaders Programme.’
Chris Mayoh, Bowling Park Primary, was nominated for the following reason:-
‘For revolutionising opportunities for independent learning and for implementing rigorous processes for e-safety training.’
Congratulations to all the winners. The full list can be viewed here:-
A huge congratulations to Chris from all of the Curriculum Innovation Team. He was chosen as the worthy winner of the Primary Impact Award. Other teams within CBMDC are also extremely proud of him as well.
