Millfield has been recognised as an Apple Distinguished School for 2015 to 2017 for its innovation, leadership and educational excellence in the use of mobile learning.
Millfield has long recognised the potential of technology in learning and, since 2013, integrated digital learning both inside and outside the classroom. Teachers and pupils use iPads in lessons to enhance study, improve the diversity of teaching and learning activities, enable deeper research and analysis and to provide a wider variety of options for submitting work and receiving feedback.
Millfield sports coaches use iPads to record, analyse and guide pupils in improving technique and skill.
Headmaster, Craig Considine, commented: “The selection of Millfield as an Apple Distinguished School highlights our success as an innovative and compelling learning environment that engages pupils and provides tangible evidence of academic accomplishment. By integrating digital learning so closely across all areas of school life, our pupils are developing essential digital skills that will equip them in further study and beyond into their careers and life.”
