Pupils at Challney High School for Boys have come up with AdaptiLearn, an AI tool to help teachers discover a student’s preferred learning style. It aims to improve pupils’ learning and productivity.

Jusna Ahmed, a teacher of computing at Challney High School for Boys, organised this year’s BETT visit. She said: “We are thrilled to have been shortlisted as finalists in the Quality Education category for the BETT Show 2024.

"Our team of students - Saimun, Harron, and Safwun - have so far embraced the challenge by developing their ‘AdaptiLearn’ campaign as an innovative solution. The excitement is spreading throughout the school, and our students are honoured to stand alongside such an excellent array of finalists.”

Denbigh High School pupils have created a campaign to promote the responsible use of artificial intelligence. The students made short films about the responsible use of AI, based on the values of their school.

Pupils at Lark Rise Academy are aiming to promote girls’ football in primary schools. They launched a girls-only football club, and want to help train more teachers to support more girls playing football in schools.

Mrs. Lang, headteacher at Lark Rise Academy, said: "Attending the Bett Show is a fantastic opportunity for our children to see the latest technologies. We are fortunate to have a dedicated and enthusiastic team of digital leaders, including children who are responsible for developing technology across the school.

"The Bett Show is a chance for them to further develop their skills and to celebrate the hard work they have carried out during the year, including design work, video editing, organizing fundraising events, and thinking about ways to use technology to improve sustainability."

“It is remarkable to see Challney School for Boys and Denbigh High School actively engaging with the challenge of Quality Education, whilst Lark Rise Academy embraces Gender Equality, aligning with our commitment to contributing to making society a better place.”
