Scandinavian Visit to Queensmead

On Thursday 24th January more than 40 classroom teachers and headteachers from across Scandinavia visited Queensmead School for the day as part of a trip to explore technology in education. The head teachers were introduced to technology at Queensmead during a comprehensive presentation exploring how tools including Google suite and Chromebook devices have transformed all aspects of teaching and learning.

Lunch was served in the canteen with a special Burns night menu going down a treat! In the afternoon, the Youth Travel Ambassadors, consisting of students from years 7 to 11, delivered a presentation. The students showcased their past achievements and awards for the school, and discussed their perspectives on Google suite. They explained the tools they use the most and how they are using technology to improve their progress. The YTA really impressed our visitors, with their achievements, knowledge and confidence particularly during a Q&A session The day ran like clockwork and our Scandinavian visitors left with lots of fresh ideas to try out when they got home.
