One of my favourite things about Adopt-A-School is seeing the progress the children make, not only in terms of their technical level, but also with their confidence. Alongside the tech part of the club, we also run Toastmasters sessions to help the kids practice public speaking skills
This year, we introduced an exciting new program called the Teaching Innovation Challenge into our Adopt-A-School program. The intent of the program is to support teachers and help enable them to bring their teaching to the next level. Teachers and co-teaching pairs developed new curriculum, tried experiments, and generally had a go at raising their own standards and adding innovations to their schools.
