Winning the Guardian WISE awards 2017

November 10th, 2017 · No Comments

Fantastic news which I just had to blog immediately! Anne Adams was in London this evening attending the Guardian Wise Awards for which we had been shortlisted (one of three) and we won! See Anne at the left of the winners.

This is real recognition for all the effort Anne puts in to set up and support her teams! Anne put together the application and encouraged us all to contribute to the video which illustrates our work on Evidence Cafés, game-based learning, teaching tricky topics and working with teachers. We were each tasked with producing no more than 10seconds of video to keep it snappy and to the point. Here are the two 1 minute videos we out together to support the application.

Anne did the second video in a single take! Well, it would have been a single take except that I hadn’t switched my phone on to record the video so I had to get her to do it again, which she did as perfectly as she did the first time. Congratulations Anne!
