A SCHOOL in Cricklewood is hoping to transform teaching and learning through the use of new technology.
Anson Primary School is one of 10 schools in the country to team up with Microsoft to develop its technology.
It had already developed a 'virtual school' online for children and parents to access, which won the school a Becta ICT Excellence Award in 2009.
Headteacher Jeff Smith said: "This is a fantastic opportunity to benefit from Microsoft's expertise to help us continue to develop our extensive resources aimed at providing 21st-century learning opportunities for our children."
Simon Pile, the school's ICT co-ordinator, added: "The technology that we provide motivates our children to always do their best and push the boundaries of their achievement. Anson children think school is cool."
The school will be involved in many projects with the computer software company during the next year.
