SELWORTHY School hosted colleagues from schools in Romania, Turkey and Italy as part of a special technology project.

The exchange is part of a 2 year EU funded Erasmus project.

The week was the second part of the project following a week long experience in Romania last year.

The project is an opportunity for the four schools to share practice around integrating technology into the classroom setting.

Throughout the week, Selworthy School showcased how teachers use technology to inspire and motivate their learners. There were opportunities to see green screen video recording, technology in music and to learn how to create symbols that aid communication.

Andy Holden, deputy headteacher, said: “It has been a privilege to work with colleagues from across Europe.

"We have already heard that some of our visitors have implemented new thinking in their schools and are seeing a positive impact.

"The exchange of ideas and strategies between professionals is fundamental to ensuring that all children, everywhere, are getting the best deal.”

Part three and four of the project will see visits to Turkey and Italy.
