We are delighted not only to have won the Scottish award for the prestigious UK- wide technology competition" Make IT Happen", but also first prize for the United Kingdom.
The competion recognises primary school technology projects led by nine - eleven year olds which are helping the school or local community.
We at Woodhill wanted to integrate technology across the curriculum and use it to establish links with other schools in Scotland and abroad.
We encouraged students to develop podcasts and blogs which could be used as learning materials. Material was created to support French and English lessons as well as wider issues such as health and globalisation. Parents were given information about the blogs and encouraged to view the information online.
It was also shared with partner schools in Scotland , England, France, Germany, Italy, Austria, Czech Republic and China.
We were invited to London to receive our £3500 prize from the Speaker of the House of Commons at a special awards ceremony with MPs in Westminster.
