You may have heard of the Reading Ulysses course that we have successfully run in Blackrock Education Centre before. Well, we are delighted to announce that Dr Seamus Cannon has offered to guide us in the long-life adventure that is to discover what has been described by many critics as ‘one of the greatest novels ever written’ (if not the greatest!!!)
The course will consist of seven sessions: Tuesday, 20th November 2018: Session to serve as introduction to Homer’s Odyssey and James Joyce and his family - Six monthly sessions: Tuesdays 8th January, 12th February, 12th March, 9th April, 14th May and 11th June 2019
Please note: This seminar day is for Primary Principal's and one other nominated teacher
The purpose of this seminar is to support and inform school leaders and digital learning teams in applying the new Digital Learning Framework to embed digital technologies in teaching, learning and assessment.
The seminar will:
● empower and enable school leaders and digital learning teams to effectively embed the use of digital technologies in schools, emphasising a constructivist pedagogical orientation.
● explore, through the use of the six step process and the sharing of good practice, how the DLF can support the embedding of digital technologies in the school context.
● raise awareness of the supports PDST and PDST Technology in Education can offer in embedding digital technologies in teaching, learning and assessment
During the session, you can preview our new computer-based test platform (DOTS; Drumcondra Online Testing System) and our new Primary tests in English reading and maths, delivered on paper and on the DOTS platform. The test content and the technology supporting the test delivery were all developed in Ireland, and are specifically designed to meet the needs of Irish schools.
ERC staff will be available from 9:30am - 1pm, so please call in at any stage during this period to see the tests and ask any questions. Attendees will be able to try the cloud-based system, and see live tests and sample reports.
