Brighton Secondary School is pleased to announce that it has been recognised as an Apple Distinguished School for 2017–2018 for its outstanding use of technology within the school’s 1:1 Digital Learning Program.
The Apple Distinguished School designation is reserved for programs that meet criteria for innovation, leadership, and educational excellence, and demonstrate a clear vision of exemplary learning environments.
“The selection of Brighton Secondary School as an Apple Distinguished School highlights our success as an innovative and compelling learning environment that engages students and provides tangible evidence of academic accomplishment,” said Olivia O’Neill, School Principal.
“At Brighton we aim to create world-class critical thinkers and learners through an innovative learning and teaching program, and this recognition reinforces our goal to be a leader in digital pedagogies. Through our 1:1 Digital Learning Program, students have become accustomed to their classrooms being places of deep learning and stretch.
“Flipped learning in particular has further enhanced this environment for students, where time in class is spent on higher order thinking and solving real-world problems through challenge based learning. Our Digital Learning program, which sees each student with an iPad or MacBook, allows our students to be curious, courageous, and confident communicators who are equipped to become lifelong learners.”
