The Community Education Awards is very pleased to announce that the winner of the Technology in Learning Award 2015/2016 is Trafalgar Infant School, Twickenham. The winning entry, ‘Ready to Go to Rio’, involved creating a room that would serve as a multi-purpose learning platform on the theme of the Olympic Games. The room’s design was based on similar successful projects run by other schools, and pupils were given the opportunity to put forward their ideas on what kinds of interactive content should be included.
Trafalgar Infant School commented:
“As an infant school, we adopt a cross-curricular approach to learning and the Olympic Room enables our children to explore all areas of the curriculum and relate these to different aspects and elements of the Olympic Games.”
The Olympic Room not only enhances the children’s level of interest in the Olympic Games, but provides a friendly and rewarding introduction to potential e-safety issues surrounding online activities such as blogging and engaging with social media. Trafalgar Infant School created the Olympic Room within their Fronter learning platform.
Congratulations once again to Trafalgar Infant School!
