We are delighted that Shekou International School (SIS) has been selected as the winner of the 21st Century Learning School of the Year 2014 Award. There were a large number of entries from schools in 15 countries and it is a great commendation to our staff, students and program.
The global judging panel were extremely impressed by our entry and wanted to commend the school on the highly quality of the work they saw including the documentation and the supporting video materials.
Feedback from the judging panel below:
"Very impressive. Loved that the pedagogy is leading the tech infusion. Also that social-emotional aspects of the program are being drawn upon to foster collaboration, networking and thinking. We were impressed with the diversity of learning platforms being used in this school. Consideration of the physical environment and the effect on students and teachers was a valid and important point that does not get addressed. So, we liked the unique but student-centred approach that took the other perspectives into consideration. You are very lucky to have such a talented and inspirational team of teachers in your school.
