Ó/From TG4

A Chara,

Tá liosta scannáin na Nollag fógartha ag TG4 inniu. Leis seo tá na scannáin Ghaeilge a bheidh le feiceáil ar an gcainéal thar saoire na Nollag. Beidh an chéad chraoladh den scannán 'Lego Ninjago' as Gaeilge á chraoladh Lá Nollag ag 11:30am.  

Bheinn buíoch dá bhféadfaí é seo a scaipeadh i measc múinteoirí agus tuismitheoirí na scoile.

TG4 announced its Christmas movie schedule today.  Included here is information about Irish language versions of children's movies that will be aired over the Christmas holidays on TG4.  Lego Ninjago as Gaeilge will air for the first time on Christmas Day at 11:30am.

I would be grateful if you could share this list amongst teachers and parents of your school.

 

Le gach dea-ghuí,

Webinar - Making the Most of Online School & Technology Use – A Brain-Based Perspective

The pandemic has forced many schools to close and move online abruptly. This has caused disruptions for all stakeholders – students, parents, teachers and administrators. From managing the short attention spans of preschoolers to motivating disengaged teens, the online school experience has brought about challenges, lessons and stresses for many. There are also concerns about the extended use of technology and devices in our children.


In this webinar, we’ll discuss the challenges of distance learning and technological use from a brain-based perspective for students from preschoolers to teens. We’ll also explore ways to maximise this experience and provide ideas to make the most for all who are learning or teaching from home. A shift in paradigm, expectations and deliverables, or a fresh way of looking at education, may help all of us to come out more successfully from this unwelcomed situation.


Join us in this webinar to gain the latest neuroscientific insights on the online learning experience  and how best to help your learners (and yourself!) take advantage of this opportunity. 


Attend this webinar to:

  • Understand the real constraints on students’ attention and focus with home-based learning 
  • Explore a fresh paradigm in shifting focus from the “what” of learning to the “how” of learning, which may be more aligned with the online school experience 
  • Learn about the latest brain-based advices on technological use in children from preschoolers to teens 

Join us in this webinar to gain the latest neuroscientific insights on online learning

Suitable for: School administrators, teachers, counsellors, psychologists, allied educators, therapists, parents or anyone interested in the learning brain.
