Online ICT Resources

Several local teachers have assisted in the correlation of subject based online resources. Most of these centre around Primary teaching, and have been presented as they relate to the National Curriculum. We are particularly grateful to David McMahon (Scoil Chriost Ri & PDST Advisor) who has put huge work into bringing this valuable resource together. We are hopeful that it will be useful to Primary Teachers in County Clare and across the country.
