The Thurles campus of LIT will host a CESI Meet on Friday 10th May from 7-9 pm. For those of you who have never been to a CESI Meet, it’s an evening of chat, learning, sharing and fun all rolled into one. Mags Amond will be the Bean an Ti for the night and will keep us all in line (kind of!!). Have a look at this Animoto to get a flavour of what’s involved.
CESI Meets are the Irish equivalent of Teach Meets. They give people an opportunity to talk briefly about a piece of technology that they use. Presentations can be either a 2 minute nano, a 5-7 minute mini or a 15 minute soapbox presentations. I love hearing about the wide variety of technologies in use in classrooms across the country and further afield. The fruit machine that decides who’s up next to present is great fun – that is of course until Mags overrides it as we near the end!! There’s often a Skype call to connect with educators in various parts of the world to share and to hear what works for them.
There’ll be a few surprises at this year’s CESI Meet so make sure to come along to kick off the conference and to get the conversation going. Register to attend and/or to present at the CESI Meet on the conference website.
