Computing in the Irish Curriculum

Presented by: Richard Millwood et al

The Computational Thinking for Life group at Trinity College Dublin in collaboration with CESI Exec members will facilitate a workshop session to debate computing in the Irish curriculum, using ‘Open Space Technology’ (a misnomer – no technology involved – see ). It will facilitate participants to set the agenda, air their interests and concerns and find common ground to discuss with others. A short introduction regarding the theme is followed by agenda setting, discussion at tables and then brief report back. Facilitators: Richard Millwood, John Hegarty, Nina Bresnihan and Mags Amond.
