On Wednesday (21.11.12) evening, I was lucky enough to be shortlisted for the ‘Innovation in Education award” as part of the Blackpool Gazette education awards along with two High Schools from the local area.
It was fantastic to find out that I had won when the winner was announced, I was very suprised and a little shocked as to me, all I do is go about my daily role of being a class teacher, whilst trying to make the learning opportunites creative and innovative at the same time.
Over the last half term I have been trying to push the use of the Ipad alongside Apple TV. Having just moved into a modern, state of the art, new build – I am lucky to have all the infastructure in place in which to let the innovation run smoothly. In my classroom I have an Epson EB-455Wi projector , one school ipad, my own ipad, and a 3 yr old Macbook.
I take a lot of inspiration from my PLN via twitter, there are so many teachers who are pushing innovation and creativity on a daily basis – I am just trying to use some of that within my class.
