Matt Smith joined Meadowbrook Primary School as a newly qualified teacher in September 2011 and it soon became clear that he is an exceptionally talented teacher with a vision to enhance learning through the use of technology. The implementation of his ideas has had a profoundly beneficial effect on the whole school! He has integrated advanced technology into the teaching at Meadowbrook Primary and as such is said to be “transforming our school, our teachers and most importantly our students”. He has introduced an innovative one to one iPad scheme so that the use of iPads at home and school is now fully integrated into children’s learning and pedagogy in the classrooms. He has led developments on the use of a wide range of Apps and Apple TV, connected to projectors; all dedicated to supporting the children’s computer literacy as well as their learning outcomes. And most importantly, he has inspired the children to love learning! He is truly a worthy recipient of this prestigious Award.
