Shortlisted for an award
A learning tool which helped Cumberland students stay up to date with learning during school closures and lockdown has been nominated for a prestigious award.
The Dynamic Progress Report (DPR) has been shortlisted for the BETT 2021 learning, teaching and assessment award.
The online resource is especially useful during school closures as it tracks student progress in real time to make sure they are staying up to-date with their class and home work.
In 2019, DPR was nominated in the ‘Innovators of the Year’ and ‘Leadership and Management Solutions’ category at the BETT awards, which recognise excellence in school ICT.
Creator Mr Zaman said:
“DPR not only empowers teachers and school leaders during the ordinary school days, it has been instrumental during the lockdown.
It allowed us to continue teaching the school curriculum, carry out high quality teaching and learning and in return we achieved a high level of student engagement and motivation.
For example, our attendance is above 80 per cent which is significantlyhigher than both private and state schools. Over 90% of our students across our trust log into DPR more than five times a week. It’s been nothing short of a game changer.”
