Living Schools Lab Project – Showcasing good ICT practice in schools and exploring ways to upscale and mainstream this in other schools

Presented by: Karin Whooley & Sarah-Jayne Carey

Living Schools Lab is a pan-European project involving 12 countries that aims to create a sustainable, growing network of primary and secondary schools, based around regional clusters, that showcase and share best practice and ways to successfully embed the use of technology in teaching and learning across the whole school. In Ireland, there are 7 schools participating in Wave 1, including 2 “Advanced Schools”. Colaiste Bríde in Clondalkin is the post-primary “Advanced School” and in this presentation teachers from Colaiste Bríde will share some of the good practice currently ongoing there and how they work with and support each other to mainstream that across their school.
