H-International School has been selected as an Apple Distinguished School, one of the first schools in Italy to receive this recognition.
The Apple Distinguished Schools are excellence centres for digital didactics - amongst the most innovative in the world - who are selected for the unprecedented learning environments that they create. Apple technology and products are integral parts of these environments. In this context, students are inspired and their creativity, ability to collaborate and critical thinking skills are stimulated. Thanks to this recognition, our teachers and coordinators will have the chance to access an exclusive network with whom they can share their experiences and successes and H-FARM will have the honour of hosting guided tours organised by Apple.
The long and complicated process to obtain this important recognition involved the collaboration of several of our teachers who worked alongside digital professionals from H-FARM: an iBook, which tells the story of our school from a technological and innovative viewpoint, and three videos, which show how we integrate technology and digital tools in our academic programmes, were created from this synergy.
Since the beginning of our project, we have shared with Apple our vision for a new type of school, where students are given the chance to learn and prove their learning in different and differentiated ways, based on their inclinations, aptitudes and preferred ways of expression.
Most of all, we share with Apple many challenges we want to win for the future of Education.
This recognition is a sign for us that we are heading in the right direction.
