    I find in many aspects we are a 21st century school as we use as many of these 21 signs to teach to our students when it is possible, obviously at times you can’t use these sign when teacher certain subjects.
    The only way we could improve on this, that i can think at the moment, would be to have some interactive lessons rather than turning up to class?? By some teachers recording what is needed to be done for the next lesson or in a few weeks, and the students watch the recording and do the work for that lesson. If they have any problems they could, either comment on that recording or email or find the teacher.
    Although this could cause problems of many students not doing the work or forgetting too etcc.

    I think that our school is working towards being a 21st century school in some aspects. But on others we are still in the 20th century, or even further behind. We do have some of the points mentioned but things like working with schools from abroad is something that we dont do, which could help our classes as they could see things from different points of view.

    We could move more towards a 21st century school by using things such as laptops instead of writing things on paper, using social networking sites to help with work etc or by having lessons using some sort of technology allowing you not to go to the classroom but doing work at home or elsewhere.

    To some extent we are a 21st century school and we do a lot of the things from the list. In some subjects more than others though and some teachers are definantly more 21st century than others. To helps us become more of a 21st century school we should make sure all subjects and teachers have this attitude and that technology is used more often.

    I think that our school definitely shares some of the aspects in the list, using them more in certain subjects.
    To become a 21st century school we could use more technology, for example, using iPads for work, rather than pen & paper or other methods. This could also be used to some extent for art, media and ICT.

    I think that our school is working towards a 21st centuary school as it has most of the aspects from the list. There are one or two points that our school doesn’t do which we can work towards.

    i think our school is working towards being a 21st centuary school, we have some of the aspects that a 21st centuary school should have but there are some things which we could change to move our school further into the 21st centuary such as using ipads instead of pen and paper.

    I would say out school can tick most of the boxes in regards to being a 21st century teacher…

    To tick more boxes, I would say you need to communicate more with parents over the internet, using the blog and VLE as a medium to do so. Also, try and incorporate more types of technology during lessons, aside from just computers.

    I think that our school is heading towards being a 21st century school, however I think there is more that we could do to ensure that we are one. I think that the school is trying a lot of new technology on the computers to help out with projects, and units, however to improve they could use more technology that does not involve the computers.

    I think that our school is relatively a 21st Century school. But it doesn’t tick ALL the boxes on the ’21st Century Teacher’ tick off thing. I think some of the ideas on it are really good!
    I think to do this, the school needs to improve the VLE and use more blogs in other lessons as a medium to do work. They also need to improve the speed of the computers at some parts of the school (for example, the sixthform area – those computers go at a snails pace!)
    Also, the school needs to use more technology during lessons other than computers. I mean, even though we have interactive white boards, teachers rarely use them to WRITE on and only use them for videos, etc.

    I think our school is a 21st century school because we have good technology such lots of computer, laptops, good DT machines also we are just about up 2data programmes. But we should have IPads for the students in sixth form so it is faster to do work and its faster than computer. I think in my opinion

    I think we are a 21st century school as we are up to date in all of the latest technology, such as smart boards, some iPads and the amount of computers and labtops availible at any time. we also have the latest programmes to fully advance students in any subject

    i beleive that our school is a 21st century school as it ticks most the the 21 boxes. to improve the school and make it more like a 21st century learning style they could use more technology such as ipads or better computers within the school, or even make the software better such as windows 7, this will make the school technology better and tick more boxes as 21st century technology is improving as the school has stayed to basic softwares.

    I think that to become a full 21st century school we need to invovle parents more with the VLE etc improving their knowledge of what goes on in school, we also need to use it more often as a tool for communication between students and staff, there should also be blogs for every subject not just IT making communication between students and teachers for each subject much easier and accessible.

    I think our school is working towards being a 21st Centuary school. I would say we are mostly there as we have smaetboards, i-pads and most classrooms have computers in them. To make us more of a 21st Centuary school we could try differnet kinds of technology in lessons.

    I think that our school is not yet officaly a “21st century school” altough some people may have different ways in which they define this, in my opinion, school’s who are a 21st Century school should have many of the new technologies introduced, including things like iPad’s which are accesible to students at all times, and at least one computer per person in school so that if someone is in need fo one, they easily will have access to it, where as in our school, their arn’t always laptops available to the students in sixth form therefore we should have laptops and all resources needed to be classed as a 21st century school

    I think our school is almost a 21st century school, because we have the technology just not the ability or should i say permission to be aloud the technology in school.We have some of the newer recorces in school just not as many as we could have in.

    Our school has loads of computers, and I think we’re a 21st century school because we have the ability to use computers such as Apple Macs, etc. And the use of cameras, smartboards, and TV’s.
