Crawford International School has been selected as Microsoft Showcase School for 2021-2022 for integrating technology with teaching and learning.

As a Showcase School, Crawford International School will work with Microsoft to spearhead innovation in education through technology by mentoring the local schools and around the globe.

It now joins an exclusive community of schools globally recognised for their educational transformation, which includes a vision and innovative teaching, learning and assessment to promote a growth mindset among educators and students.

“Being selected as a Microsoft Showcase School is an amazing honour and recognition of the passion our teachers and staff have for creating the best learning environments possible,” said Crawford International School managing director Jenny Coetzee.

“We look forward to sharing our experiences with other schools in our community and the world to continue finding innovative ways to equip our students with the proper tools needed for success inside and outside of the classroom.”

Showcase Schools will realise many benefits, including the ability to communicate directly with one another, participation in an exclusive online global community, and the opportunity to host and attend both online and in-person educational thought leader events.

“Microsoft Showcase Schools are shining examples of those applying purpose-driven innovation in a variety of ways to build connection, motivate students and create a community in and out of school,” said Microsoft Worldwide Education vice president Anthony Salcito.

“These schools are truly transforming learning and providing more personalised education to students, empowering them to achieve more.”
