ICT Whole School Training


Dear Principal,


The Cork Education Support Centre in conjunction with the PDST Technology in Education (formerly NCTE) offers a range of fully funded ICT professional development courses for teachers.

The professional development courses cover a wide range of topics such as using the digital camera, basic ICT skills and internet safety. All courses focus on the integration of ICT in learning and teaching.

We would like to bring to your attention the availability of these ICT courses as “whole school” training events, specifically for the teachers in your school. These courses can:

· take place in your school, in the Education Centre or another suitable venue

· tailor existing course material to the particular needs of your group of staff

· cover a range of topics from using the digital camera to developing a website to using the internet in teaching and learning

· be as short as a once-off 2.5 hour session to a 20 hour course run over a number of weeks or months

The minimum numbers required to run a course is 10, but smaller schools may wish to consider combining with another local school.

The full range and types of courses available can be found at http://www.pdsttechnologyineducation.ie/en/Training/Courses/

Yours sincerely,

Niamh Ní Mhaoláin
