We have issued over 300 internal eLearning awards this academic year so far, following either face-to-face training sessions or via our collection of online courses. The most popular awards to date have been Google Drive Essentials, iPad Essentials and Star Classroom Essentials - core awards which are a gateway to our Challenge for eLearning CPD pathway.
In addition to this in-house collection of awards, which can be found at awards.dret.cloud, staff have been working hard to gain external eLearning qualifications and awards which recognise skills in using technology for better learning and student outcomes. These external awards include:
Google Certified Educator
Microsoft Innovative Educator
Class Dojo Mentor
DRET schools including Charles Read Academy, Havelock Academy and Bringhurst Primary to name just a few now have teachers that have been awarded external awards and qualifications by Google, Apple and Microsoft - with lots more to follow. What's great about these awards is that they aren't a simple box-ticking exercise, but require applicants to demonstrate proficiency and know how to use the tools to enhance the classroom experience.
Congratulations to all those staff members who have achieved awards so far this year - and we have lots more to follow we are sure of that.
