Launch of Ireland’s First Google Educator Group – GEG
Limerick and Clare Education and Training Board’s Schools Division has marked the exciting launch of Ireland’s Google Educator Group website – www.geg.ie. The website was launched by Google for Education Ireland on Tuesday 16th at a webinar for educators throughout Ireland looking at Blended Learning for the new academic year. This is the first approved Google Educator Group for Ireland.
GEGs are independently run communities of educators who inspire and empower each other to meet the needs of students through technology, both in the classroom and beyond, via face to face meet-ups and online activities. GEGs provide a way for educators who are passionate about education and technology to meet like-minded people to share, learn and collaborate with one another. GEG Ireland endeavours to provide fellow educators with the most accurate, up-to-date information and best-practice in integrating technology into teaching and learning. The group actively shares innovative knowledge and expertise in using Google for Education tools.
GEG Ireland was established by Donncha Ó Treasaigh, the ETB’s Director of Schools, and Conor Power, an IT teacher at Coláiste Chiaráin, an ETB school in Croom, County Limerick. GEG Ireland has posted an exciting and comprehensive schedule of events with some of the most well-known and respected educators in Ireland who are passionate about using Google in Education technology. GEG.ie will be updated regularly with relevant and helpful information, cutting-edge thought leadership, announcements and class-based success stories and experiences.
Donncha Ó Treasaigh, Director of Schools, praised all involved in working to develop this powerful support network for educators in Ireland. He said: “Teachers have been leading the way in embracing the use of technology, such as Google for Education for years, to enrich learning and teaching for our students. Technology Enhanced Learning (TEL) has become an essential component of the toolkit that educators must use now to engage students of all levels, particularly with school closures and the need to provide Distance Learning measures.”
GEG Ireland will be co-hosting a live Meet on Tuesday, 16 June at 1.00pm to look at ways schools can prepare for September and a new school year.
There will be a panel discussion with Principals and Deputy Principals and the GEG.ie website will be formally launched by Google during the event.
