Grantham school filmed as case study for teachers' online course
A Grantham school has been filmed as part of a case study showing how it uses technology in the classroom.
West Grantham Academy St Hugh’s was selected by the Chartered College of Teaching as a case study of best practice in the use of technology which will be used by teachers on its online course
The film crew spent a whole day capturing lessons and interviewing teachers and students. They filmed a range of lessons including English, science and maths, as well as an online mentoring programme with Beaconsfield High in Buckinghamshire.
Teacher Max Strother said the use of technology in his lessons has created increased enthusiasm for learning. He talked of the impact of using Quizlet in history; iTunesU and Pages in English, as well as Showbie and Seesaw. The ‘Virtual Library’ created by English teacher Hollie Kendall has encouraged students to share their reading online. Teachers will be able to enrol on this course in the new year.
Executive headteacher Susan Dench said: “We are proud that St Hugh’s will be influencing teachers around the country; helping them to help more children to love learning, through the use of technology.”
