Over 35 staff members of Pusat Ehsan Al-Ameerah Al-Hajjah Maryam took part in a workshop recently that aimed at empowering educators to be innovative and equipping them with 21st Century teaching and learning skills.

Certificates were presented to the participants by Education Lead of Microsoft Brunei Siti Aisyah Zawiyah bin Md Riza alongside Pusat Ehsan Board of Trustees member Pengiran Sarimah binti Pengiran Haji Abdul Latiff.

Head of ICT Department at Yayasan Sultan Haji Hassanal Bolkiah Primary School and Microsoft Innovative Educator expert Bethsaida Ruiz facilitated the workshop where she shared valuable information to help the participants earn their first Microsoft Innovative Educator badge and acquire knowledge and skills in Microsoft Inclusive Classroom and Online Assessment Test using Microsoft Forms.

The workshop also provided the educators with numerous free education resources and applications while engaging them in professional development in ICT integration.

The centre hoped the workshop was a learning experience for its staff while equipping them with technologies and resources that support student-centred learning, gaining experience in ICT best practices and connecting them to the online community for continued learning.
