This August, The Ark will offer a DES approved summer course for primary school teachers focussing on two curriculum areas: drama and music. Participating teachers qualify for EPV days. Participants will also receive 20% off full price tickets for their class to visit The Ark in 2013/14.

The seminar will outline some of the requirements needed to make the most of the broadband to be provided, outline the Microsoft Office 365 offering for education, and demonstrate examples of how a range of free Microsoft tools and CPD can be used to enhance teaching and learning in your school through the Partners in Learning Network. H2 Learning will also demonstrate some of the Windows 8 tablet devices now available.
A technical briefing will take place in Blackrock Education Centre on Tuesday June 11th at 5:00 p.m.
This briefing will deal with the technical aspects of your 100 Mb connection to the school, but of equal importance, how this broadband can be most effectively distributed throughout the entire school.
The briefing will be given by Tom Lonergan of PDST / Technology in Education (formerly NCTE). Tom has particular expertise in the types of wireless solutions that will and will not work in school settings. Some schools have made costly mistakes in the past when installing wireless. We are anxious that these mistakes will not be repeated.
