The Learning Foundation has identified a number of schools around the country for recognition as Regional Champion Schools. These schools have all demonstrated excellence in the management and application of a fully inclusive and sustainable 1:1 technology programme (where every child has their own device to use in class and at home).
There are two types of Regional Champion School, one where they have implemented a full school 1:1 programme and the other where they have implemented this in one or more cohorts (or year groups) only but where there is a commitment to broaden this. In both cases, however, they are managed in a fully inclusive and sustainable way. Those teaching staff involved in the programme will also have received training in how best to blend technology into their lesson plans.
Because one of the key values of a true 1:1 programme is access at home as well as at school, all of their pupils will have been surveyed to assess their WiFi access at home and, where it is not available, reasonable efforts will have been made to help make it available.
All of our Regional Champion Schools are willing to share their experiences with other schools and demonstrate how they use the technology to enhance learning. From time to time they also run open days where more formal presentations will be made. Find out which schools are running events HERE.
