This afternoon we shared a relaxed, enjoyable, humorous chat with PhD candidate in TCD and broadcaster, former teacher and Rose of Tralee winner, Aoibhinn Ni Shuilleabhain. [@aoibhinn_ni_s ]
Aoibhinn told us about her views on technology in the classroom. She thinks that technology is really important and beneficial and can be a more exciting fun way of learning. However she said that books and writing are also crucial and necessary for learning, similar to what Deputy Editor of The Irish Times, Fintan O’Toole had said this morning in our interview with him.
Aoibhinn used to be a Physics and Maths teacher so she understands the problems and worries teachers have about the Education System in Ireland. She said she loved teaching and guiding students. Her favourite part of teaching was helping students and she said had great fun with her students in the classroom.
Interviewed by Bridin and Jack Ryan.
