Innovation in Schools Award

The Innovation in Schools Award (founded as the Paul Shoesmith Award) is an accolade for schools that use ICT creatively. It is a chance to praise forward thinking teachers and award schools that use original and effective teaching and learning methods. The award offers schools the opportunity to showcase their innovative and inventive use of technology and to share their ideas and inspire colleagues with the many benefits that ICT can bring to education.
