I am so fortunate to know some real 'tech geeks' Karen Czaban, Glen Pattterson and John Wishart and some brilliant marketing people Carol Majury and Jamie Muir so I asked them to help me and they said yes!!!!
None of us thought in the early days that we would actually get the interest there has been in the group so I have to thank the other 5 admin who have given up a lot of their summer holidays working on setting up Twitter, YouTube and now this amazing website. I really am grateful to them. What has been equally incredible is the genuine collaboration among the members of the group. Celia O'Hagan from Stranmillis University college contacted us to offer her support as a 'Blended Learning Advisor' to the group and Celia's input has been invaluable. The education Minister, Peter Weir. and the Chief Executive of CCEA, Justin Edwards, have also been engaging with the group since mid July and we are grateful for their advice and guidance to date.
To the members of the group I am in awe! Many of you have shared your knowledge, skills and resources in the true spirit of collaboration. I truly believe that this input will give the young people of NI the best opportunity to succeed in their education during this pandemic. I want to say thank you to you all! Have a lovely weekend and I wish you and your pupils a safe return to school on Monday.
