Revheim School is a public elementary school with 310 students, ages 13 to 16, and 30 employees. The school is located in an established suburb of Stavanger. The area around the school is given over to both residential and agricultural usage, and schools use the local community actively in teaching. The school’s students have a consistently high level of academic achievement. Student well-being is at similarly high levels, and the school does not suffer major social problems. Revheim School is currently participating in an eTwining project in game-based learning and has previously participated in several Erasmus and Comenius projects.
In recent years, the school has focused on the pedagogical use of ICT. Dr. Ruben Puentedura’s SAMR model for the integration of technology in teaching has been important in the development of this aspect of education. Revheim School is one of the first schools in Norway to have introduced its own ICT, community and programming course for all students, and to have a Makerspace on site. Each student has his/her own Chromebook and the school uses G-suite and other digital tools actively in the students’ learning. All teachers have undergone Google Teacher Level 1 certification.
