“There’s nothing artificial about AI.  It’s inspired by people, it’s created by people and, most importantly, it impacts people.  It is a powerful tool we are only beginning to understand and that is a profound responsibility” (Fei Fei Li).  Advancements in AI and smart technology are changing at an exponential speed.  During these workshops we will explore the impact of AI and Smart Manufacturing on the world as we know it and consider the challenges and opportunities that arise from this impact.  “We live in a time of great promise and great peril.”  (Klaus Schwab)

PDST Primary Physical Education Move Well, Move Often Seminar Day 4

05-02-2020 9:15 am -3:15 pm

This spring, the PDST are delighted to offer the next phase of Physical Literacy training for primary schools – Seminar 4 which focuses on developing pupil’s motivation and confidence to participate in physical activity. In this seminar, participants will explore a variety of strategies that can be easily implemented in PE lessons to motivate and develop pupils’ confidence to improve participation in the PE lesson and also in physical activity within and outside of school. Developing motivation and confidence is a key element of every child’s physical literacy development.

This seminar builds on the content of our 3 previous seminars which focused on movement competence through the fundamental movement skills.  Research shows that being physically active later in life depends on feeling confident in an activity setting; and that confidence, as an adult, most often comes from having learned Fundamental Movement Skills which are the basic building blocks of movement and are an essential part of everyday life and recreational activity.   It is only when these skills are mastered that a child can go on to develop specialised movement skills, which will allow them to reach their potential in sports-specific endeavours. 

This seminar is limited to two teachers per school registering on the PDST online booking system.

Limerick Education Centre is inviting your school to participate in a Science/STEAM  Project starting in February 2020.

There will be 4 workshops + Introductory session in Limerick Education Centre .

Most of the topics will be suitable for all classes.  Often there will be a few STEAM projects arising from the workshop that can be explored in the school

·         Each participating teacher will then explore the topics in his/her own classes and will also introduce the topics/’ways of working’ to at least one other classroom in the school.

·         The emphasis is on building the scientific skills of each participating teacher and then building the skills of other school staff and students.

The dates of the workshops are as follows : Introductory session Thursday 6th February,
Workshop 1 Thursday 13th February, Workshop 2 Thursday 5th March, Workshop 3 Wednesday 1st April, Workshop 4 Tuesday 5th May. Time 4.30pm-6.30pm.
