Dorchester school showcasing technology

A school in Dorchester which operates a cloud-first approach to the use of digital technologies in the classroom has been showcasing their work at Dorset Council’s County Hall offices in Dorchester.

The Prince of Wales School, Maiden Castle Road, Dorchester is a Google for Education ‘Reference School’ – a prestigious title that recognises the school’s use of technology in the classroom to positively impact the education of all it’s pupils.

Headteacher at the school, Mr. Gary Spracklen explains; “Being a Google Reference School means we are part of a select group of schools and colleges. Being part of the Google Reference Schools program means that our use of G Suite throughout the school and our good practice in utilising it’s tools can be referenced and displayed to offer support to other schools. Today it’s been great to visit County Hall with some of our Digital Leaders (Year 3 Pupils) to showcase our work!

The showcase has included demonstrating how we use Augmented Reality and Virtual Reality in the classroom to inspire learning. How we incorporate the use of robotics in Maths lessons and how we use cloud-based technologies to access learning anywhere, any time on any device!”

Year 3 Pupil and Digital Leader Andreas said “We have really enjoyed showing the adults here at County Hall today how we used technology to engage, innovate and inspire our learning. Our school is a very exciting place to be!”
