If I were the Minister for Education...

Here is my project to suggest ways for our education system to be the best it can be. I have a few ideas, which I’d love help fleshing out.

*UPDATE – December 2019*

I have been co-opted to the Board of Directors of the IPPN. I am unable to continue this podcast while in this position.

*ANNOUNCEMENT*

I'm very happy to announce that I have been co-opted to the Board of Directors of the IPPN. I have been on the IPPN National Council for over 10 years and I am grateful for the nomination to this new position. #edchatie

As you might appreciate, I will be unable to continue my weekly podcast on this page. I will however revert back to supporting teachers and principals with educational technology advice. I have also removed myself as a director of Mash.ie, though the business will otherwise continue as normal. I will also not be acting on behalf of any other organisation while a member of the IPPN board which might create a conflict of interest.

If you do comment, please be mindful that I will have to remove anything that could be perceived as problematic for me. I am looking forward to working this new role.

Thank you all so much for all your support and kindness
