AIS Education: Neil Atkin @ Harrow International School

By Neil Atkin

Bangkok & Kuala Lumpur

Neil Atkin had a very successful trip with AIS at Harrow International School in Bangkok. Courses included Creating Independent Learners, Teaching the Lower Achievers, Stretching the most Able, Flipping Lessons (a practical guide) iPad Integration and Cutting Edge ICT., The venue was superb, the delegates a delight and the feedback outstanding. The snake that jumped out of a tree as he was kayaking past in the lake enabled him to reach Olympic speed for about three paddle strokes.

Just finished an outstanding INSET “how to stretch the most able” lead by Neil Atkin (@natkin). Feeling inspired!

George Speller (@drgeorgespeller) (@natkin) thanks for excellent iPad inspiration today. Lots of new ideas to try in class!

There then followed a trip to the highly regarded Alice Smith School in Kuala Lumpur on iPads in Lessons and Outstanding Science. Neil says “These were some of the best staff I have ever encountered and the day flew past – Mind you as I arrived at my hotel at 1:00am and left KL at 5:00pm the same day that wasn’t the only thing flying.”

Probably the most interesting feedback was ” I didn’t believe that a training day that covered from Reception to Year 13 could possibly work, but it was superb!”
