Keith Marsh, Chief Academic Officer, PACE Group
A good education is constructive in nature and promotes the feeling of physical, mental and social wellbeing. It helps the students to improve their status of mind, body and spirit. It provides us with confidence by giving us knowledge in many subject areas.
We know from years of experience that children learn at their own pace, but sometimes the traditional classroom makes it difficult to do so. With the integration of technology in education, children have the ability to slow down and go back over lessons and concepts, and more advanced students can move ahead. It also frees up the teacher to help children on a more one-on-one level.
Having access to other information outside of the traditional textbook gives students many different ways to learn a concept. Teachers can come up with creative ways to teach their students and keep them engaged. Technology has changed the learning environment so that learning is more hands-on. Schools throughout the emirates are diverse in income, and often children don’t always get the resources they need. The implementation of technology in schools helps close that gap.
Technology helps make teaching and learning more meaningful and fun.
At PACE Group, it is our goal to provide the best education for all children, irrespective of ability that we can.
Here at PACE Creative British School, we will be incorporating all the above values into school life. Through
a commitment to engage teachers of the highest quality and provide them with a comprehensive Professional Development Programme, we will work with students, parents and the wider community to fulfil these goals.
Lawrence, Principal, PACE Creative British School,Ajman
At Pace Creative British School in Ajman, we believe that beyond parents, there are few people in a young child’s life who will have a more important impact and influence on their development and wellbeing than teachers. When students experience great teaching, not only do they learn and achieve; they never for get it.
At Pace Creative British School, we will be focused on providing a teaching and learning program that is delivered using current proven pedagogy. The diverse teachers that we have will use English and Arabic languages as a scaffold to develop solid foundational knowledge across the English National Curriculum and MoE subjects.
It is not a coincidence that PACE is linked to the four pillars of effective education provision, namely, Pedagogy, Attainment, Curriculum and Ethos. We look forward to developing a strong community of learners who develop the knowledge, skills and understanding to thrive in today’s diverse global community.
