University Park Primary School, a Promethean Centre of Excellence

 

 

The Promethean Centre of Excellence program recognises schools that integrate the Promethean ActivClassroom technology in order to achieve best practice in both teaching and learning.

 

It encourages a strong partnership between the school, Promethean and the local Promethean Premium Partner. Promethean Centre of Excellence schools are identified as lead schools which other schools can visit to gain a better understanding of how to best integrate the Promethean technology. Centre of Excellence schools are well skilled in the use of the technology and happy to evangelise their ideas with others.

 

A select group of schools are selected in each Australian State and Territory to join the program. Schools are identified by the local Promethean Premium Partner and are required to adhere to the guidelines/requirements.

 

University Park Primary School (UPPS) was selected as a Centre of Excellence for a number of reasons. They have shown a commitment to the Promethean technology through the integration of ActivBoards and associated peripherals in each classroom throughout the school. Lambourne Consulting (Promethean Premium Partner) works closely with the staff at UPPS to ensure each teacher receives on-going support and professional development, which is vital when implementing any new form of technology. UPPS have also been very open to other schools visiting to observe the Promethean technology in use and provide advice to schools that are looking to invest in interactive whiteboards.
