Classroom of the Future

Book your place on Warrington’s first showcase of innovation in education. The event will celebrate the collaboration among Warrington schools and demonstrate their shared vision to shape the future of learning for the 21st Century.

 Working with Futurelab, Livelab, schools and other partners Warrington Borough Council have been co-ordinating and promoting action research programmes, developing communities of practice and supporting and sharing innovations appropriate to the needs of learners in the 21st century.

The following workshops will provide a flavour of the work being undertaken in just some of our schools.  

  • Extreme Living Creative Enquiry Project: developing creativity and literacy within a Geography context
  • Harnessing new technologies and resources: exploring the use of mini PCs, flip cameras, Nintendo DS consoles and IPADS for learning
  • International Primary Curriculum and the Children’s University
  • The use of Quality Improvement Teams (QITs) with a particular focus on the development of pupil voice to enhance curriculum innovation.
  • Next steps in implementing and using a professional development camera system for CPD
