Earlier this month we attended the Redefining Learning Conference in London with The Whitehaven Academy as part of the launch of the Microsoft Showcase Schools program, for which the academy has been selected.
As part of the conference, we delivered a workshop on the work we have done, and continue to do, around PowerBI within our Ki Data app.
The Whitehaven Academy, a Knowledge Network school, was the only Showcase School to present on the leadership track at the conference which highlights the level of innovation that is taking place within the school and Trust which it belongs to, Bright Tribe. The academy is making better use of data to make informed decisions – no Trust or Academy in the UK can demonstrate this more effectively.
Of course, the highlight of the day was the official recognition that The Whitehaven Academy is a Microsoft Showcase School for this year and that three members of staff from the academy have been recognised as Microsoft Innovator Educator Experts (MIEEs). As MIEEs, the team will deliver talks, training sessions and webinars on behalf of Microsoft to other schools to share best practice and what they have learnt from the implementation of technology supported learning at The Whitehaven Academy.
We have lots of exciting times and ahead and we’re looking forward to sharing these with you in the near future.
