The Classroom Innovation Awards finalists’ videos were showcased on the ASUS stand during last week’s BETT Show, 12-15 January 2011, with six short-listed schools in attendance to talk about how they have used technology to excite and encourage pupils in new and innovative ways of learning.
During the show visitors to the ASUS stand were asked to select a primary and a secondary winner from the entries on display. Over 1000 votes were recorded during the show and individual schools worked very hard to drive and encourage voting. The winner in the Primary Sector was West Dean Church of England Primary School; Croesyceiliog School for the Secondary Sector.
Richard Doughty, Classroom Innovation Editor, said the Awards “have not only clearly demonstrated the excellent and creative use of technology in the classroom, but the level of engagement and participation at the BETT Show has been first-rate. Congratulations to the two winning schools.”
John Swatton, Marketing Manager at ASUS agreed; “ASUS have enjoyed a very successful BETT Show and have been delighted to host the Classroom Innovation Awards. We look forward to sustaining our dialogue with practitioners in the world of education in the future and specifically we look forward to working closely with the winning schools.”
