St. Paul’s is pleased to announce that it has been recognised as an Apple Distinguished School for 2018–2021 for its innovative use of Apple technology in learning and teaching.
Apple Distinguished Schools are centres of innovation, leadership, and educational excellence that use Apple products to inspire creativity, collaboration, and critical thinking. They showcase innovative uses of technology in learning, teaching, and the school environment and have documented results of academic accomplishment.
“Being recognised as an Apple Distinguished School is testament to the leadership and drive shown by our digital learning team and we are very proud to be pushing forward on this aspect of innovation in school”, says the Head, Ms Louise Simpson.
This great accomplishment is fruit of the fantastic work of dedicated leaders, teachers and pupils. Since the school decided to invest in a digital learning strategy to enhance the curriculum, the life of the school community has changed.
“The selection of St. Paul’s as an Apple Distinguished School highlights our success as an innovative and compelling learning environment that engages pupils and provides tangible evidence of academic accomplishment”, states the head of Digital Learning, Glaucia Rosas.
The school leadership team is also fortunate to count on the support of a group of pupils that meet regularly with them to discuss issues related to technology in education. They advocate for best practices among pupils and offer them support when necessary.
“As digital leaders we are very passionate about technology and will always agree that it is the right path to take. The vision that we have shared with many of our digital leader colleges when the group was founded, was of a fully functional digitalisation of school with software that will ensure effective learning and an infrastructure that can support excellent teaching.” says Paulo, a St. Paul’s pupils and a digital leader.
“After many years we have achieved much of that and our recognition as an Apple distinguished school is testament to this. Technology has been an asset to our lessons, and we hope this continues to be the case as the school continues to develop.” adds Gonzalo, another digital leader.
