…. and Apple sues other companies for copying its technology!
It’s worth a listen:
Apologies to those who don’t understand a word of it. I couldn’t afford a translator.
Tom Crean was an amazing man. He travelled and explored the Antarctic a hundred years ago.
The man so impressesed me that I made a video about him!
The DES has posted Circular 0008/2011 on its website in relation to the implementation of the Croke Park Agreement.
I could list the details but all is contained in the circular.
Important points to note – it provides for teachers working an additional hour per week and allows for contract reviews.
The circular is here.
The Teaching Council has published four reviews of primary teacher training:
- Postgraduate Diploma in Education, UCD
- Graduate Diploma in Education, St Patrick’s College, Drumcondra & Addendum
- Bachelor of Science (Education) in Physics and Chemistry, University of Limerick
- Bachelor of Education, Mary Immaculate College, Limerick & Addendum
As primary teaching is my forte I’ve been reading number 4 (and addendum) with interest.
What strikes me, initially, is how short the review/report is – it’s only 8 pages long – with 7 members on the review panel it looks as if they wrote just over an A4 page each!
