Well designed new schools should have the best of new technology.
Stonefields is certainly a well designed new school with the best of new technology.
But what interested the principal and her senior management team more was how to ensure that this great technology was used by the students, their parents and all of the staff to enrich and deepen what the students learnt and how they learnt.
Stonefields commissioned Evaluation Associates to work with them to critique and then refine their approach to curriculum delivery, their expectations of classroom practice, their vision for powerful student learning, and their assessment and evaluation processes.
The sessions with the school helped the new staff to confidently build a school-wide collaborative delivery model.
This model allows students, family, whanau and school staff to form a strong partnership focused on learning, effectively supported by that great new technology.
