Building a TEL Community of Practice within a school setting

Presented by: Frank Kehoe

This presentation will focus on the setting up of a Technology Enhanced Learning (TEL) group within a school setting. Aimed at teachers who were interested in using technology in the classroom and based on a Community of Practice model, teachers shared their knowledge and experience in an informal small group setting. Presentation will discuss the model and the overall experience as well as offering some tips for future similar groups to be set up in schools, who want to spread and develop their use of technology in the classroom.
