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. David and Finn continued the conversation with Daitihí in their interview.
Here Finn and David met up with Simon at last nights CESImeet. We asked him some questions about Educate Togetherschools and his many websites. He gave us some really good answers. Simon runs a number of sites for Irish school and about education in Ireland such as Anseo.net . He also runs half-marathons! 🙂
Mary Jo Bell ( @7MJB) won the 1st prize in the raffle at last night’s #cesimeet here at ICTEDU.
She won a set of ‘ShowMe Boards’ . Photo below.
She will be using them in her senior infants class.
Mary Jo will then give feedback to CESI on how she uses them and how she got on with them.
