STEAM: Launch of our STEAM magazine 'Full Steam Ahead' & STEAM Videos

Launch of our STEAM magazine: Full Steam Ahead 

STEAM magazine: Full Steam Ahead

In conjunction with our Erasmus+ STEAMING Project, Clare Education Centre is delighted to launch this magazine for Primary Teachers. The magazine is filled with practical STEAM lessons all based around the skill of collaboration. The magazine has been developed by a group of teachers who have met regularly to share good practice and ideas for teaching through STEAM.  Our thanks to Mr Michael Browne, Miss Siobhan Barry (Parteen NS), Miss Maeve O'Dwyer (Coore NS), Mrs. Sharon Brady (O'Callaghan Mills NS), Ms. Davina Kehoe (Cratloe NS) and Mr. Aaron Carroll (Cratloe NS) for their work in collating such a fantastic resource.

0001 80002 30003Post Report review 2Clare Education Centre is leading on the design, development and pilot of an innovative Outreach programme for primary schools based on climate change and action. The programme harnesses the arts as a foundation for a STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Maths) learning process on this complex and challenging area.The overall goal of the CAPS programme will be to build climate action knowledge and capacity in primary teachers and pupils through creative, collaborative, critical, and innovative thinking about the causes and effects of climate change. Learning how to understand and deal with these issues, using the Arts as a launch pad to investigate, will promote attitudes of individual and collective responsibility towards planet Earth and develop environmental literacy in teachers and pupils alike. The programme will be piloted in a number of schools in County Clare in Autumn 2020.Read more on HERE Listen to Evelyn Sorohan's interview on Clare FM HEREParticipating Schools are: Scoil Mhuire, Ruan, St.Mochulla's NS, Tulla, Kilrush NS, Knockanean NS, Ballina Primary School and Caherea National School.Lessons to be delivered live via online platformShort Overview: A STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Maths) Climate Action programme in which the child, teacher and facilitator explore the causes and effects of Climate Change, while engaging in seeking creative solutions to this growing problem.Structure: Co-facilitated over 6 weeks via virtual means in 1.5 hour sessions (with a break).  All resources (digital and physical) provided to the school. These will be posted to the school in advance and include a USB with digital resources for the teacher.Overall Climate Action Challenge for the Course: We will use one overall challenge to frame the course and all the activities, so that everything in the individual lessons will reinforce the learning and contribute and combine to fulfil the final project.CAPS 1CAPS 2

STEAM Meet 2020

STEAM Meet 2020

In conjunction with our Erasmus+ project on STEAM, we had our inaugural STEAM Meet on Wednesday, March 4th in Clare Education Centre. 

The STEAM Meet was an opportunity for teachers to come together to share their thoughts, ideas, stories and methodologies for teaching STEAM in their classrooms and schools.

The guidelines for the STEAM Meet were as follows:

  • Presentations were to last for a maximum of 5 minutes
  • There should be no more than 3 slides
  • After the presentation, there was 2 minutes for discussion, questions and answers

On the night, there were nine presentations. The biggest challenge was in sticking to the agreed times for both presentations and discussions. The Presenters’ openness in sharing their work and appreciating that of others was heartening.  It was an honour to be in the company of such enthusiastic and creative teachers who gave of their time voluntarily to share and learn with others.

We are looking forward to STEAM Meet 2021 already!

Concern Primary Debate Competition 2019-2020

Concern Primary Debate Competition 2019-2020  

Clare Education Centre hosted the county final of the Concern Primary Debates 2020 on March 12th.  The debating teams from Toonagh NS and St Senan’s Kilrush qualified for the final out of the twenty-two primary schools who participated this year.  The motion for the final was, ‘Young people of Ireland care little for the developing world’. 

The teams had an opportunity to research their positions in advance. On the day, each team nominated three debaters who put together well-formed and researched arguments.  Following a very high standard of debating, Toonagh NS emerged as worthy County Champions. 

Commiserations to the debaters from St. Senan’s NS Kilrush who spoke, persuaded, argued and rebutted admirably. 

Concern organise Primary Debates at a national level and assist with the organisation of the competition. In addition to the support of Concern, Clare Education Centre deeply appreciates the support of our adjudicators Liam Lawlor, Jody O’Connor, Antoinette Barry and Mary Fitzgerald who assisted with the entire competition.  Without our adjudicators, it would not be possible to host the debates. 

Debating engages our young people in research, critical analysis, communication and higher order skills. Watch out for our next competition in September 2020 and consider entering your school team.
