Myddelton College is situated in Denbigh, North Wales, and is forerunner in the use of futuristic learning in the classroom.
In the Spring 2018 edition of The Guide to Independent Schools magazine, their article ‘Futuristic Learning‘ (pages 46-47) looks into the benefits of 21st century teaching at the college. Headteacher Mark Roberts explains how the school’s decision to go paperless will prepare children for the digital world:
“Here at Myddelton College, we embrace technology in the classroom by allowing pupils to work on tablets, using stylus pens. The school has done away with all but one of its printers, switching to mobile and cloud technology to underpin learning. And instead of using handouts, our teachers upload work online and can even mark “live” in real time while pupils watch. Students can also log in to OneNote the day before a lesson to see plans and materials in advance.”
By making the switch, the school will save an estimated £100, 000 per year on paper, pens and printing. This goes a long way towards off-setting the £150, 000 setup cost of a paper-free environment.
The college is a Microsoft Showcase school, the first of its kind in North Wales, and one of 34 in the UK. They also benefit from a 5GHz wireless technology network, and will soon have high-speed internet 100/200MB line.
