Open P-TECH: Digital Skills Based Learning about Emerging Technologies

Presented by: Yvonne Conaty, Deirdre Kennedy

There is no better way to prepare students for the world of work than by having the opportunity to sharpen and augment their digital and professional skills with Open P-TECH. Open P-TECH continues to add learning activities in emerging technologies like Artificial Intelligence, CyberSecurity and Cloud while also allowing students to earn recognised digital credentials.

In this session we will take educators and teachers through a whistle stop tour of what Open P-TECH has to offer and how emerging technologies can be incorporated into the Irish school curriculum.
