Dr. Daithí Ó Murchú gave a keynote presentation at the CESI Conference today. I think it’s fair to say that he sparked people’s imagination. He encouraged attendeees to create teaching and learning environments that work best for their students. We heard about immersive and wearable technologies, the blurrring of the lines between reality and imagination as well as his proposed second trip to Everest among other things.
