Getting ready for our adventure as part of the CoSN Delegation to Ireland… and very exciting to contemplate the learning experiences that will take place during our days in Dublin and Belfast.
We have a series of high level meetings with policymakers in both Ireland and North Ireland – first time that a CoSN Delegation will be meeting with two Ministers of Education –Richard Bruton in Dublin and Peter Weir, Minister of Education in Belfast …and two members of Parliament – Ciaran Cannon, Member of the Irish Parliament and Pam Cameron , elected Member of the Northern Ireland Assembly
Our agenda will allow us to really delve into the Irish experience in ICT – and the policies that support their use, the professional learning that takes place and the invocations that are occurring.
And our visits to St. Patrick’s N.S. and Le Chéile, Tyrrellstown, will allow us to see how policy is translated into practice.
Travel well – looks like we might get some rain so remember to pack the umbrella – and check out the headlines in the Irish Times
See you in Dublin
