Testimonials

I found the workshop very helpful and it really motivated me to get going with my class. Apart from the Scratch ideas, I also appreciated the practical ideas about file management, you tube downloading and saving. Since the workshop, I have been using laptops to teach Scratch 2 but also my class have been teaching Senior Infants Scratch Junior on IPad and this has been great fun too. Many thanks for your help – Clare Egan – Primary School Teacher.

Thanks a great day. A Really informative day. Well enjoyed. Trish Holland – Post Primary Teacher – Hamilton High School.

Thanks a million for the resources and for the course on Saturday. It was fantastic and very informative. Angela Goucher – Post Primary Teacher – Loreto College Swords.

Thanks for an excellent training day. Anthony Hutchinson – Post Primary Teacher – Hamilton High School, Bandon.

I found the workshop very insightful with regards to technology and internet use as well as learning more about coding. It was a really suitable workshop for beginners in this area as you did not bombard us with too much but just enough to allow us to begin lessons in the area of coding and internet safety. Anne Flood – Special Needs Teacher – Saplings Rathfarnham.

I got a lot out of the day. I appreciated your patience with my lack of knowledge & never felt you were judging me for that (a lot of my tekkie friends can do that!) Marianne Brady – Principal – Scoil Chaitriona Snr, Limerick.

The workshop went very well last weekend. I thought you gave some great tips and clips and a great introduction to Scratch. It was a very relaxed workshop and everyone had lots of opportunity to ask questions and chat. Lunch gets 10 out of 10 and of course the classroom was delightful!! Gemma Walsh – Primary School Teacher – Scoil Mhuire Coolcotts, Wexford.  

Advice given on Windows Defender as sufficient anti-virus software was beneficial. Advice on safe use of YouTube and downloading videos was very useful. Snipping Tool was useful. Demonstration on binary was useful. Cracking the code. Very useful in classroom scenarios with children. Scratch introduction considering I was an absolute beginner was a bit rushed but I am already better familiarised with now as a result of looking at the lesson plans. Ross Byrne – Primary Teacher – Ballygarrett NS, Wexford.

I’d just like to thank you for a most enjoyable and informative day on Saturday. I found the course to be excellent. Having only heard of Scratch and its merits previously, but never having had any actual experience of it, I now feel that I have a good handle on the concept. I feel that I am well equipped to step into a class and teach lessons on Scratch. I believe the children will love it and will benefit greatly from learning how to use it. I would highly recommend this course to other teachers. Mags Sparling – Primary Teacher – Glengurf NS, Limerick.  

Thank you for the course today it was excellent! Michael Delaney – Primary School Teacher – Templemore.

I attended Phase Two on HTML last Saturday in Stillorgan. Thoroughly enjoyed it. Ethan Kiernan, Maryfield College, Drumcondra.

A great introduction to post primary coding, complete with an exceptional resource folder to prepare you for the classroom.

After phase 1 and 2 of the course I feel equipped with the knowledge and materials to begin delivering the course, and eager to return for phase 3. AJ Doyle CBS Carlow.
