Pearson Publishing are to proud to have supported Melbourn Village College's Digital Learning day, held on Monday 23rd June.
90 Year 5 children from five local primary schools joined 60 Year 7 children from Melbourn Village College to learn about being Digital Leaders. A team from the Specialist Schools and Academies Trust (SSAT), led by Digital Pedagogy expert Andy Williams, ran sessions looking at key questions surrounding the use of digital technology in supporting learning in school.
Children created blog entries and presentations which were shared with parents in an evening event at the college.
George Pearson, a local educational publisher and a Trustee of the Comberton Academy Trust, of which Melbourn Village College is a member, said:
“It was a pleasure to be involved in such a forward-thinking event and to work with such technologically aware students.”
Melbourn Village College Principal Simon Holmes said:
“It has been fascinating to engage the students in telling us what they think 21st century learning should look like. Schools need to ensure they make best use of the skills they bring and the possibilities that new technologies offer us.”
Pearson Publishing have recently launched their innovative mobile learning system nimbl for schools, colleges and education providers with a range of mobile learning publications available for primary, secondary and post-16 settings with more coming soon.
