Deputy Head, Richard Challoner School
When Ian first started teaching in 1987 the height of technology was the Banda machine used to generate worksheets. He now works in a school where every student has their own iPad to support their learning and pastoral development, and staff are used to using this device as an integral part of their learning and teaching repertoire. At Richard Challoner the wider curriculum plays an important part in that development process, but tracking and acknowledging participation has always been a problem. Avalon, a new educational software development company with links to the school, offered to work with the school to develop a tool. Ian and the school firmly believes that the Avalon Achieve software is a major step forward in its ability to enthuse, reward and acknowledge this wider participation in events both within and outside the school environment, and as such it will play a significant role in allowing our young people to become well-rounded individuals, who recognise the importance and benefits of getting involved in their own communities.
