    Thanks for a very interesting podcast Ciaran. You’ve created some excellent resources and I think both the bookclub and the film festival websites will provide an excellent opportunity to enhance learning in an exciting way for children.

    I also agree with you about training for teachers. I like the idea of using more technology in my classroom but not owning an ipad puts me on the back foot. I need time to look at and try out apps but this is not always possible during teaching time / time spent in school before and after school. I would be able to do this in the evening when my children are in bed if I had access to the technology.
