We asked five questions relating to episode 2 of Making Ireland Click: The Education Race.
What followed was a lively and informative discussion with teachers, school leaders, and organisations involved in Irish education.
Question 2: The need to introduce digital based subjects like coding and programming is pressing. What can be done to make this happen?
Question 3: Do teachers understand how to teach through technology? What can help?
Question 4: In relation to the pace and nature of change in Irish education: how can we speed Ireland up? Create a momentum in schools?
Question 5: Do you agree with David Puttnam: could some schools be ‘hiding’ behind the Department rather than challenging it with regards to going digital?
