ICT Fair at the Emirates Stadium

Last week we were lucky enough to be invited to ‘The Emirates Computing Celebration’ in the Highbury Suite of the Arsenal Stadium. Seven children from Year 1 took their iPads to the event to showcase the fantastically creative ways that we are using iPads in education here at Whitehall Park. The event was attended by 300 other children and companies such as BBC, BT and Espresso were there to allow the children to trial new and upcoming technologies and learn a wide range of computer programming skills through designing computer games, animations, websites and blogging. Maggie Philbin addressed the children with an inspiration speech about her journey into technology and education and she shared the achievements that she is most proud of. We were so proud of our children who were some of the youngest children there and they behaved brilliantly and collaborated with children from other schools and year groups really well.
