The UK strike GOLD at the Microsoft Olympics for Teaching and Learning!


 It is with great honour and pleasure to announce that Katie Boothman and Nicki Maddams have each won awards at the Worldwide Global Forum, Prague 2012. There were 18 educator awards up for grabs and the UK is coming home with two of them. We are very proud of their achievements and after spending a fantastic week with both educators I can honestly say they credit their students for their exemplary teaching and learning practices.  They wowed judges, global delegates, school leaders and senior Microsoft employees all week resulting in a great win:

  • Katie won 2nd runner up in the category ‘Extended Learning Beyond the Classroom’ for her project The Hit Squad
  • Nicki won 1st place in the category ‘Cutting Edge use of Technology for Learning’ for her project Kodu in the Klassroom.




Next week look out for a blog post covering the week’s events and a little insight into both of their experiences. Once again,
