I could not be a more proud Principal than I was today. Within a year, our school has won the coveted Microsoft Showcase School Badge .Our teachers are using Sway. Our children are now globally connected and being exposed to experiences through virtual field trips & Skype sessions. They are coding, creating apps, using Kodu and Minecraft. The speed with which the transformation has happened is mindboggling. All credit to my team, especially my Computer teacher Reetu Pandey and Coordinator Pankaj Rathore, both of who have the distinction of becoming MIEE’s Microsoft Innovative Educator Experts.
Today Ms Reetu Pandey conducted an intensive three hour training of all my staff members to ensure that we make further headway in this journey .She insisted that all teachers first need to become MIE’s Microsoft Innovative Educators. She gave detailed instructions on how they need to go about it. Mr.Pankaj Rathore spoke about SDG’s and the value that Microsoft Certification is going have in future jobs .I gazed at these two teachers –two “enthused” and “empowered” educators who were showing the path to “excellence”!!
We then had a Skype session with Mrs. Paramjeet Dhillon Head of Kamla Nehru School in Phagwara, that are forerunners and are world famous for the immense initiatives they have taken in becoming a truly technology driven school. Mrs. Dhillon and her team of of five teachers shared the work they are doing and promised to extend every support that we needed .This was a bunch of passionate teachers transforming lives in a small village school, and placing it on the world map.
Swati Bhushan my pre-primary teacher than took up a session on 3D-Paint and it’s use in all subjects .I couldn’t be happier at seeing how not just my children, but even my teachers have grown.
