The Resourceful Chemistry Teacher

This is the International Year of the Periodic Table of Elements, the fundamental resource for teaching chemistry. This workshop will introduce some novel resources and methodologies including gamification e.g. PTE Bingo & The Periodic Table Gazette, with the aim of increasing student curiousity and motivation. Calculations including those based on First Principles will be explored and a planning database technological resource will be disseminated. This tool shared in the Autumn workshops will enable teachers to facilitate teaching, learning and assessment in Senior Cycle Chemistry. It will enhance the role of the teacher individually and collectively as a Laboratory Technician, Safety Auditor, Action Researcher (using Reflective Practice). In order to maximise benefit from the digital tool, teachers should personalise it by adding their own resources to it. Please bring a new blank 16 Gb USB key to the meeting (this will avoid viruses) and we will exchange it for one with the database preloaded.
