Droichead Primary Cluster 1 Meeting

14-01-2020 5:00 pm -7:00 pm
NQTs must apply for Droichead via the ‘My Registration’ portal on www.teachingcouncil.ie and receive a confirmation email before attending Cluster Meeting 1.

Cluster Meeting 1 must be attended before attending other cluster meetings and we recommend that NQTs attend Cluster Meeting 1 ASAP after commencing the Droichead process.

NQTs are required to attend one cluster meeting (specific to their sector, Primary or Post-Primary) per term in sequential order for the duration of their Droichead Process.

A sign-in system is in operation at all cluster meetings. An NQT arriving more than 10 minutes late or leaving early is unlikely to receive credit for attendance at that cluster meeting.

NQTs must bring Form D (available at www.teachingcouncil.ie) to each cluster meeting for stamping to record attendance. It is the responsibility of the NQT to maintain this record.

Technology in the Future:  With Great Power Comes Great Responsibility!          

Text Box:  Technology in the Future:  With Great Power Comes Great Responsibility!                  
“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)
