Thank You, Thank You, Thank You, You're far too kind....

I'd just like to say a huge Thank You to everyone who presented at todays Connect Education Conference in the Dublin West Education Centre.

Thank You to Anne McMorrough, Shane Foley, Stephen Howell, Noel Malone, Georgina Byrne and of course Lord David Puttnam.

And to all who attended, thanks for engaging - there are no hurler-on-the-ditch when it comes to the subject of education which you are all so passionate about!

Next what we need to do is harness the massive positive energy that was so obvious today and and direct it into something practical.

I'll be in touch with all participants and attendees next week to see where we go from here.

In the meantime feel free to let us know what you thought of the Conference by leaving a comment below.

The Future's not what it used to be - ... and the only constant is change!

  1. Thank you Ronan and to all who helped organise today's Connect Education Conference as well as to all the speakers and to the director and staff of DWEC. Couldn't but be impressed and challenged by the energy and enthusiasm of all the presenters. It was very informative. I repeat my question "How do we handle constant change?". I ask it from the perspective of a primary teacher engaged in training fellow teachers. In 2012 we can say that EVERY child was born in the 21st century. Every teacher's roots are in the 20th century which began and ended with blackboards. Suddenly catapulted into a world of white boards and exponential change, many teachers are bewildered and fearful...that the children have passed them out.

    1. Thanks Seamus, change can only be dealt with by embracing it. Resist and the danger is that the teacher becomes irrelevant to the child. Go with it and the teacher is open to learning from the child. But yes it is challenging, but exciting and rewarding too. I havent dipped into your Scratch from Scratch book yet but looking forward to it, thanks for sharimg it with me Seamus

  2. Well done to everyone involved - a great event. Inspirational leaders in their field. I left with a couple of 'aha' moments, some ideas and a few excellent one liners which I will be repeating ( and acknowledging the source of course). Most importantly I was really motivated to continue pursuing An Cosán’s goal to harness the advances in technology to better use education tool with which to effect personal and social change. Thanks Avril

    2. Thanks Avril, delighted you enjoyed it. I spoke to Lord Puttnam about your idea on the way to the airport, he's certainly open to going through the material when I send it on. I'll be in touch next week.

  4. MRS.IRENE QUERY FINANCE IS THE BEST PLACE TO GET A LOAN {mrsirenequery@gmail.com}

    God bless you Mum, I will not stop telling the world about your kindness in my life, I am a single mum with kids to look after. My name is Mrs.Rachel Alex, and I am from Center Drive, Miami Beach, FL . A couple of weeks ago My friend visited me and along our discussion she told me about MRS.IRENE QUERY FINANCE, that they can help me out of my financial situation, I never believed cause I have spend so much money on different loan lenders who did nothing other than running away with my money. I have been in a financial mess for the pass 7 months now,She advised I give it a try so I mailed her and explain all about my financial situation to her, she therefore took me through the loan process and gave me a loan of $180,000.00 at a very low interest rate of 3% and today I am a proud business owner and can now take good care of my kids, If you must contact any firm to get any amount of loan you need with a low interest rate of 3% and better repayment schedule, please contact MRS.IRENE QUERY FINANCE via email{mrsirenequery@gmail.com}
