I found the workshop very helpful and it really motivated me to get going with my class. Apart from the Scratch ideas, I also appreciated the practical ideas about file management, youtube downloading and saving. Since the workshop, I have been using laptops to teach Scratch 2 but also my class have been teaching Senior Infants Scratch Junior on IPad and this has been great fun too. Many thanks for your help – Clare Egan – Primary School Teacher.
Thanks for a great day. A Really informative day. Well enjoyed. Trish Holland – Post Primary Teacher – Hamilton High School.

Thanks for an excellent training day. Anthony Hutchinson – Post Primary Teacher – Hamilton High School, Bandon.
I found the workshop very insightful with regards to technology and internet use as well as learning more about coding. It was a really suitable workshop for beginners in this area as you did not bombard us with too much but just enough to allow us to begin lessons in the area of coding and internet safety. Anne Flood – Special Needs Teacher – Saplings Rathfarnham.
Trevor, The course was excellent. The resources are useful and easy to follow. It has made the job of planning for the new junior cycle coding short course much easier. I am looking forward to the next two phases. Regards, Laura Boyle – Presentation Secondary School Tralee

I got a lot out of the day. I appreciated your patience with my lack of knowledge & never felt you were judging me for that (a lot of my tekkie friends can do that!) Marianne Brady – Principal – Scoil Chaitriona Snr, Limerick.
The workshop went very well last weekend. I thought you gave some great tips and clips and a great introduction to Scratch. It was a very relaxed workshop and everyone had lots of opportunities to ask questions and chat. Lunch gets 10 out of 10 and of course, the classroom was delightful!! Gemma Walsh – Primary School Teacher – Scoil Mhuire Coolcotts, Wexford.
The advice given on Windows Defender as sufficient anti-virus software was beneficial. Advice on safe use of YouTube and downloading videos was very useful. Snipping Tool was useful. Demonstration on binary was useful. Cracking the code. Very useful in classroom scenarios with children. Scratch introduction considering I was an absolute beginner was a bit rushed but I am already better familiarised with now as a result of looking at the lesson plans. Ross Byrne – Primary Teacher – Ballygarrett NS, Wexford.
I’d just like to thank you for a most enjoyable and informative day on Saturday. I found the course to be excellent. Having only heard of Scratch and its merits previously, but never having had any actual experience of it, I now feel that I have a good handle on the concept. I feel that I am well equipped to step into a class and teach lessons on Scratch. I believe the children will love it and will benefit greatly from learning how to use it. I would highly recommend this course to other teachers. Mags Sparling – Primary Teacher – Glengurf NS, Limerick.

I found the course very practical and gave a very clear idea on what to expect students to know by the end of the JC short course. Dr. Declan Kelly, Principal. John Scottus Secondary School.
After completing your 3 day course, July 9, 10 and 11th 2019 I feel my level of competence about Computer science and coding has vastly improved.
The key to this is that Trevor, as an instructor, has empowered me with the basic knowledge and resources to deliver comprehensive classes to my students.
Not only has he compiled resources but they are very usable in that that they capture all learning styles by including visual and audio resources. This shows Trevor’s understanding of teaching and will save me time trying to resource suitable learning material for my teaching tool kit.
His knowledge of the topic and his stories about industry made for a more interesting course and I certainly felt engaged during his class. Adrienne Kilkenny Nolan – Youth Training Centre
Thank you for the Computer Science CPD. I have found this 3 day course very useful.
I would have had experience from way back in the day in programming (AIT BBS – IT stream) and have thought IT classes to secondary school students in recent years.
However I felt up to this point that I was missing a link and this course has most definitely provided that link – so thanks again. I feel now that I have a clear plan – road map – and can put my skills and knowledge to better use in the classroom thanks to the direction and resources provided by this course. Laura Dwyer Post-Primary Computer Science Teacher Ballinrobe CS
I found your course really interesting and engaging. you are brilliant! I am now more confident and ready to teach coding!! Thank you again, Matilda Miniussi Post-Primary ICT Teacher.
Thank you very much for a very educational and inspiring few days. Micheal Butler CBS Thurles
