A high school has been praised for its digital “transformation” which it capitalized on during the pandemic.
Tauheedul Islam Boys High School has been praised by Microsoft after being selected as Microsoft Showcase School in 2019.
The school has been praised for its use of technology to help students progress, which has been used during the pandemic to provide mobile, flexible and uninterrupted teaching at home.
TIBHS teachers have used their new digital tools creatively to ensure students stay engaged and focused, and keep progressing.
Majid Ditta, Principal of TIBHS, said he was exceptionally proud of the school’s achievements.
He said: “Over the past two years, the power of our digital transformation program has proven its worth time and time again.
“Being able to transition from classroom instruction to home schooling has allowed us to ensure that our students’ education experiences minimal disruption during the pandemic.
Technology has also made it possible to teach at different paces so that students can progress at a pace suited to their individual needs.
Teachers also had the ability to differentiate lessons and create a more personalized learning experience for students.
The director added, “I would like to congratulate all the staff who contributed to this project and personally thank Saqib Safdar, Head of Digital Innovation and Learning, Muhammed Patel SLT Ed Tech Lead and Shoaib Mohmed, ICT Technician , who helped lead TIBHS in securing its status as a Microsoft Showcase School.
“Furthermore, I would like to thank the Star Trust IT team for all of their hard work behind the scenes to enable the school to move forward with this ED Tech transformation strategy.
“I know that the innovations that have been made as a result of this work will have a tremendous impact, which will ultimately benefit our entire school community for many years to come.”
By achieving Showcase status, the school is now part of an exclusive community of 48 schools in the UK and 325 schools worldwide, which have been recognized for their digital transformation.
