We will workshop activities to develop personal knowledge of computing and computational thinking.
The Computers in Education Society of Ireland (CESI) is the teacher professional network for anyone with an interest in the potential of technology to enhance the teaching and learning experience for all involved in education. CESI•CS focusses on computing.
In 2017 CESI welcomed the announcement of the intended introduction of Computer Science as a Leaving Certificate Subject. Members are also involved in the Junior Cycle Short Course in Coding, some are developing Computational Thinking in Primary and there is representation from third level too.
