The children in Ms Gibbons Second Class have been participating in the brdige21 21st century teaching and learning initiative in partnership with Trinity College Dublin and Google.
In May 2013 Trinity College Dublin announced a major collaboration with Google on developing a targeted intervention to support computer science and Science Technology Engineering and Mathematics teaching and learning in Irish schools.
The children and Ms Gibbons have been using technology to enhance their learning. Thus far they have used imovie to create their very own movies on the life of Tom Crean. The final products can only be described as amazing! The children will continue to use technology throughout the year and learn how to use apps such as scratch, participate in computer coding and problem solving activities.
