Putney teacher inspires pupils with new technology after prestigious Summer teaching event in Utah.

Over the summer, Hiten Mistry, our Junior School Head of E Learning attended the Discovery Education Summer Institute (DENSI)– an exclusive teaching and learning week in Utah, USA. The institute focuses on using technology to support pupil achievement.

Hiten, who this year gained ‘Apple Distinguished Educator’ status, was chosen for his enthusiasm for teaching with technology, he was one of only four UK teachers who were invited to make the trip.

Flying to Utah in late July, Hiten joined hundreds of educators at The Weber State University in Ogden.



After returning from Utah Hiten said:

“The Discovery Education Summer Institute in Utah was an unforgettable experience. After 16 years in education I’ve never experienced over 100 educators from different educational contexts in one room, sharing and collaborating. The positive vibes, stories and ideas from all those I met will stay with me for a very long time.”
