South Yorkshire: David Selwood brings American Discovery techniques back to Woodsetts Primary School
After being selected to travel to Tennessee, America, for a prestigious week-long development experience, David Selwood has returned to Woodsetts Primary School to deliver creative digital strategies to aid in the advancement of student achievement.
The acting head of school joined 149 esteemed educators from across the U.S, Canada and United Kingdom at Vanderbilt University in Nashville to learn about numerous classroom-ready multimedia projects as well as new strategies and techniques to integrate digital resources into curriculum and instruction to transform teaching and learning.
The six-day Discovery Education’s Discovery Educator Network Summer Institute (DENSI), held 13-18 July, featured a number of seminars and hands-on workshops designed to support educators as they use the latest technologies to create authentic digital learning environments that engage students and improve achievement.
“This experience has allowed me to learn from and connect with other enthusiastic educators” said David. “I am excited about these new, creative strategies and techniques for advancing student achievement, and to apply them in my classroom for the new school year.”
