Academics came all the way from Denmark to experience the range of innovative computing and technology being used at a Romford primary school.
Hylands Primary School, in Granger Way, welcomed a delegation of Danish education professionals to their school on Thursday, January 25.
The school’s Year 6 advocates provided a special presentation on the day-to-day computing that goes on at Hylands, as well as a tour of the school with the school’s acting headteacher.
Hylands pupils treated the Danish academics to a virtual lesson where the children engaged with the national archives through video conferencing, lots of programming, and the use of green screen technology.
A Hylands Primary School spokeswoman said: “They were hugely impressed with the school, commenting on the range of computing and technology that children and teachers make use of on a daily basis as well as the impeccable manners and huge enthusiasm of the children.”
