What to expect at the IPPN Expo

Before the Irish Primary Principal’s Conference, I like to browse through the exhibition list and see what catches my eye.  Every year there’s a few exhibits that warrant a visit or look interesting.  This year, it looks like it’s the year of the MIS, the Management Information System.  Thanks to the success of companies such … Read more

Anseo Podcast: The Future of ICT in Education

Anseo.net bought a digital dictaphone and decided to go into the podcasting business. Our roving reporter, Rozz, took to the virtual airwaves for the first time at the Irish Primary Principals Network (IPPN) conference. She recorded a number of podcasts, which we’ll be uploading over the next while. Anseo.net would like to note that the opinions made in the podcast are not of the IPPN’s or (sometimes) Anseo.net. We’d like to thank all the willing interviewees for their time and we hope they enjoy listening to the sound of their own voices as much as we did!

In our first podcast, we ask principals, business people and educationalists what they think the next big thing in ICT in education will be.

Anseo.net recently bought ourselves a digital dictaphone and our roving reporter Rozz is walking around the IPPN Expo asking teachers, principals, guests and businesses their thoughts on technology in primary education. We should have a nice podcast ready over the coming days so you can find out what the word on the ground really is!
