Mangere Bridge School Celebrates Edtech Success
Mangere Bridge School in Auckland has beat off competition from Trans-Tasman schools to become one of the 17 successful winners of the Promethean Grant 2018. With entries from both Australia and New Zealand, Mangere Bridge School impressed the panel of judges and won a state-of-the-art education technology package worth $6,000 NZD.
In their video entry, which you can see here, Mangere Bridge School rapped about their despair with the school’s current interactive technology – all to the tune of The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air.
Robin Tapper, Lead Teacher for Learning with Digital Technologies at Mangere Bridge School said: “We are so delighted – projects like this are a hard thing to squeeze in during the school day but it was well worth the effort. “I feel that we have lost our way with technology a bit recently, we have been struggling to use what we have effectively because it is now old, so I am hopeful that the new ActivPanel will help us to find a new direction.”
