Winning approaches

New awards to celebrate 'technology and innovation' in education

In September 2014, Teach Secondary magazine will be announcing the winners of its new Technology and Innovation Awards, in association with LEGO (R) Education – celebrating individuals and organisations whose work is helping to ensure the progress of genuinely transformative education for the future in classrooms across the country.

“I know that people are doing extraordinary and wonderful things out there, every day,” says editor Helen Mulley. “This is our chance to recognise their work, and perhaps inspire others to try something new, too.”

Nominations is via a simple online form, at, and there are five categories: Best author; Best Blogger; Best Teacher; Technology and Innovation Ambassador; and Technological Innovation of the Year.

The closing date is June 27th, after which shortlists will be passed to a panel of independent judges – including Fiona Millar, Vic Goddard, Ollie Bray (NAACE) and Debbie Forster, (UK MD, Apps for Good) and LEGO® Education, who will make the final selections.

The winners will be announced in the launch issue of a brand new magazine, Technology and Innovation, also edited by Ms. Mulley, which will arrive in staff rooms throughout England, Wales and N. Ireland this September, and promises to be packed full of brilliant resources, bright new ideas, and real life examples of creative, effective teaching and learning across the curriculum.
