StoryPhones sponsors the Teacher Award
On Thursday 10th June we were privileged to attend the Northern Gird ICT in Education Awards at the Marriot Hotel in Gosforth. StoryPhones was attending as the sponsors of the Teacher Award.
The huge room was full of children, teachers and parents from 30 schools around the region all there because of the wonderful ways they are using ICT as in a huge variety of ways to develop their learning. Down one side of the hall were displays of the children and young people’s work and ideas. I saw displays which included animated stories, wonderful digital pictures, and resources to highlight e-safety. All of the activities the children had been participating in were creative, detailed and highly developed showing how well children are using ICT in schools, but also highlighting the dedication of the teachers and adults who were supporting them.
This is why StoryPhones was delighted to sponsor the Teacher’s award, and Simon Johnson was there to present this to Mark Darling who teaches at St John CE Primary School. He was also presented with one of StoryPhones loud speaking MP3 players to take back with him.
The whole event was great fun, thanks also to the Northern Grid For Learning who had gone to great lengths to create a festive and exciting awards ceremony for the children.
