Speakers - Melissa Shine

My name is Melissa Shine. I am a Junior Infant teacher in St. Paul’s NS in Limerick. I began teaching almost 8 years ago after completing my Masters in NUIG in 2013. I have always had a passion for ICT having worked in Currys PC World for several years through college. I have completed a yearlong course in ICT in Education in the Limerick Education Centre and many other courses IT related such as Scratch. These courses have allowed me to utilize my knowledge and apply it to my teaching in a meaningful way. In previous years I have ran coding classes afterschool for the children in the senior classes and I give summer continuous professional development courses for CPD College Dublin for the last three years in e-Portfolios and other digital tools. Using the SMART Boards over the last two years have allowed me to enhance my teaching, engage my students and increase overall participation in my lessons. This is something I am eager to share with my fellow teachers.
