CoSN Senior Delegation to Ireland
CoSN will be leading a Senior Delegation to Ireland from September 22 - October 1, 2016. Ireland has been a leading player in the development of the technology industry. Since the late 1990s, Ireland has made considerable investments in ICT infrastructure in schools and in training for teachers and other professionals.
The delegation will visit schools, learn about innovative policies and implementation approaches to ICT, meet with key policymakers and government officials and travel to Northern Ireland/Belfast to meet with Department of Education officials there. Northern Ireland has its own significant history, particularly around a coordinated strategy for the effective use of ICT as an educational and a management tool. They provide a high quality, sustainable ICT infrastructure, connectivity and resources in support of school management, teacher professional development and delivery of the Northern Ireland curriculum.
To learn more about how ICT is being used to transform learning in Ireland, the delegation will visit schools in Dublin, learn about innovative approaches, hear about the Digital Strategy for Schools, meet with key policymakers and government officials and travel to Belfast to meet with Department of Education officials there and visit schools. Thank you to HP for sponsoring the delegation.
