CESI Conference 2012

Mark your diaries – the CESI ceonference is back in Portlaoise this year.  With so much emphasis on digital literacy in schools, teachers around the country need to come along to this conference to see how Irish teachers are using technology in simple ways in their lessons.  One of the great things about CESI is that it brings all three levels of education together and there’s a huge variety of talks whatever your level.
There are some super sessions for primary school teachers.  Nigel Lane, a primary school teacher in Co. Kildare is giving a workshop on Blogging Basics, a must for any teacher interested in blogging with their class.  Anne McMorrough is going to be giving a great session on different tools she uses in her classroom, including iPod apps and other web apps.  Edchat, which is a Twitter chat every Monday is a good session for anyone interested in using Twitter.   Another couple of interesting talks for technophobes would be Getting Started with ICT in the Classroom and ICT for Technophobes.  Both talks will give the very basics from teachers who have discovered ICT tools for learning that are easy to use.
There’s loads of other sessions on Google Apps, Twitter, Cloud Computing and more!  The Friday evening is a Teachmeet where teachers give 2-7 minute talks on topics that they’re interested in.  It’s fast, informal and fun, (and there’s a bar too!) You should check out http://www.cesi.ie for more details and register.  It’s the best value CPD you’ll ever get!
