There was great excitement on Friday, February 20th when the school was presented the bronze award in the Digital School of the Year category at the Digital Media Awards at a gala blacktie ceremony.
The Marino College entry "Hear Me Roar" was based around the embedded use of ICT in developing oral literacy in the college. The Digital Media Awards judging panel was a who's who of industry greats including representatives from Google and the digital strategy advisor to the Irish Government.
It is a tremendous honour for the school and acknowledges the innovative ways in which we use ICT in the college and our continuing efforts to improve teaching and learning for the 21st century student.
A special note of thanks to Sanjana Kishto and Michelle Tian in Collins for their participation in the project as student-leaders on iMovie training day.
