CCL teacher Lisa Cowell - Winner of the LEP "Innovation in technology" Award

Lisa Cowell AwardedCCL teacher Lisa Cowell has led the way in highlighting the use of technology in schools. On 1 July, she was awarded with the Lancashire Evening Post (LEP) Award at the Charter Theatre in Preston for her pioneering work.

Her school, the Penwortham Priory Academy, is one of only 21 schools across the UK taking part in the Tablets for Schools project, which is an initiative formed to campaign for the use of iPads in education. The award also rewards her very successful participation in the CCL project. “She is one of just five teachers in the UK to be part of The Creative Classrooms Lab – bringing together policy makers, teachers and technology suppliers to develop the way tablets can support new learning and tacking methods.” (Lancashire Evening Post)

The “Innovation in technology” Award is to celebrate a teacher who practices and embraces new technology within the classroom in a way that has a beneficial impact on school life for pupils and/or the way teachers plan and execute lessons.

Sponsored by Preston’s College and BAE Systems, the Lancashire Evening Education (LEP) awards showcase and celebrate the very best students, teachers, schools and employees in the area of Lancashire. It is a way of recognizing that there are more things going on in the schools in the area than just preparing youngsters for exams – and officially celebrates the achievements that are being made in the education sector on a daily basis.
