All Aboard 2017

Lots of interesting stuff going on around Ireland this week around digital literacy for kids (and adults).

Whether your thing is movie making or coding or literacy or how we learn, there’s a ton of stuff in and around the universities and schools around Ireland and a ton going on in Dublin over the next few days.

And if you’ve got young kids, there are some excellent resources to share with them about issues with going online and a general digital citizenship primer, including a television series called Making Ireland Click.

Developing the Junior Cycle Technology Curriculum

If you’re interested in this sort of thing (and live in Ireland, presumably), the National Council for Curriculum and Assessment (NCCA) has an online interest form for people keen to help develop the junior cycle technology curriculum.

As they say:

To avail of further expertise, the NCCA is seeking expressions of interest from individuals who would like to contribute to work on the new Technology specification.

Programming can be a lot of fun…

Sounds like a good time to me…
