Bredon Hill Academy awarded prestigious eTwinning school label at National Conference.
Teachers and students at Bredon Hill Academy have been celebrating after being recognised as one of only 29 UK schools awarded the highly regarded eTwinning School Label at the 13th annual British Council eTwinning National Conference.
Teachers from across all four regions of the UK came together in Coventry from Friday 8 June until Sunday 10 June 2018 to celebrate the conference on the theme of cultural heritage in line with the European Year of Cultural Heritage. Delegates attended a series of cultural heritage themed professional development workshops, supported by a variety of experts, resources and technology, including immersive and virtual reality, British Film
Institute and Shakespeare.
To secure the eTwinning School Label, the local school was assessed during a two-part application process on areas such as:
•Innovative and creative approaches to pedagogy
•Promoting continuous professional development of staff
•Promoting collaborative learning practices with staff and students
eTwinning, the digital community for schools, involving over 500,000 teachers in 43 countries across Europe and beyond, is funded by the European Commission as part of the Erasmus+ programme and managed in the UK by the British Council. The eTwinning School Label is issued to schools in recognition of their involvement, commitment and dedication to international collaboration through eTwinning.
