CESI•CS

A community of practice for educators
at all levels & sectors interested in teaching computing

Compsci.ie is a portal site to browse and search for Computer Science resources as part of the Scoilnet portal. It is a collaboration between Scoilnet, The Department of Education & Skills (Inspectorate) and PDST Computer Science. Any teacher registered with the Teaching Council can register for a Scoilnet Account and add resources.

CESI•CS 2018-19

Following the successful application to Google for sponsorship for 2018-2019, CESI is expanding the number of meetings and is developing ways to sustain the community through local efforts.

Groups are now organised with meetings at these education centres, to be followed by further meetings in the spring and summer:

Register your interest interest in the group, whether or not you can attend by click on the link for each centre.

All meetings are from 7pm to 9pm.

Why should you come to a meeting?

The meetings will give you a chance to address personal needs, build relationships with other local stakeholders and discuss issues relating to the development and practice of computing in education.

We will workshop activities to develop personal knowledge of computing and computational thinking.

Background

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.
