Last April, ELIS Villamartín became one of only 50 schools worldwide to be recognised as a SMART Exemplary School.
Yesterday we hosted a formal visit from three prominent members of the Iberia & Latam Smart Technologies team: Fernando Sanz -Area Manager-, David Jiménez -Marketing Manager- and José Luis Castaño -Education Consultant- who were welcomed by our Headteacher, Simon Roberts, and our Upper School teacher and Digital Transformation Leader, Toñi Legidos.
Our school received a plaque which certifies that we are beacons for excellence in education and are leading the way for education transformation within our community and region.
During their tour, the visitors had also time to experience first-hand the way our teaching staff use Smart technology for the benefit of our students, providing a more engaging educational experience and improving their learning outcomes.
We could not have achieved this outstanding recognition without the ongoing support from Cognita’s Digital Learning Adviser for Spain, Sabrina Espasandin, who supported our educators to follow the SMART Ambassador programme. This involved training sessions and regular submissions of their work. Hard work and dedication have made this amazing award possible.
