Since 2017, global education technology company Promethean has run an annual competition that gives schools from across the UK and Ireland the chance to win the latest ActivPanel.
With this year’s ‘Classroom Stories’ competition open for entries – and 20 of the company’s market-leading interactive displays available to win – we’ve spoken to Dave Shaw, headteacher at Spire Junior School, to find out more about his school’s experience of entering – and winning!
Why we entered
There is a large education community on Twitter, and we regularly use the platform to share our innovative ideas at the school with like-minded educators.
We found out about Classroom Stories on Twitter following one of our tweets gaining a lot of traction and someone suggesting we should enter.
Upon watching several of the other entries, we decided to give it a go and see if we could win ourselves an ActivPanel for one of our classrooms.
We have two ActivPanels at the school and have seen how they can transform the learning environment, so we thought this would be a great opportunity to upskill one of our classrooms while sharing one of our recent innovations.
