Growth mindset” This workshop presentation will introduce you to “growth mind-set”, why it is important and how to improve one’s mind-set. Dr. Dweck coined the terms fixed mind-set and growth mind-set to describe the underlying beliefs people have about learning and intelligence. When students believe they can get smarter, they understand that effort makes them stronger. Therefore they put in extra time and effort, and that leads to higher achievement.

This is open to both Post Primary and Primary Teachers. If you wish to attend this workshop Please log onto our website www.edcentretralee.ie to book you place

TEST2r is a comprehensive assessment tool used to screen and assess the emergent literacy skills which a 5 – 6 year old child should have acquired.  It is an objective measure of a child’s performance based on all of the theories of why children fail to learn. TEST2r provides an individual report on each child and pointers to intervention/resources.

  Divided into two parts, the first part consists of a screener, which is made up of five tasks for use by the classroom teacher. If a child does not perform well in the screener, then the Teacher or Learning Support Teacher will administer the second part.

 

 The remainder of the tasks are more diagnostic in nature in order to clarify any literacy sub-skill needs. The Teacher and STEN team will decide on appropriate interventions to develop these skills.  The interventions may be drawn from the teacher’s own resources or from resources tab on www.test2r.ie

TEST2r is created and developed by Dr Pauline Cogan. Over 400 teachers throughout Ireland volunteered a great deal of time administering the research instruments over a period of 13 years on circa 1300 children. By such active participation in their own professional development, supported by Department of Education & Skills, they have ensured the authenticity of the research and have exemplified the best standards of professionalism. This extensive collaboration will ensure that TEST2r will be well received by all educationalists.

 

TEST2r is published by Blackrock Education Centre and is available to purchase from www.becpublishing.com or by contacting the Centre at 01 236 5013.

 This workshop is suitable for Junior, Senior Infant and SEN teachers

Success at school leads to success in life. Children and young people who attend school regularly attain well, learn to make friends, and are significantly more likely to find skilled employment, to avoid antisocial or criminal behaviour and to enjoy good mental health. Most children start school with confidence and enthusiasm, but some do not. They do not respond to the teaching offered, either withdrawing or behaving aggressively to teachers and fellow pupils. These children will make little progress and may reach the stage of exclusion, a damaging experience for the child and sometimes the last straw that leads troubled families to breakdown. They also have a profound and negative effect on other pupils, interfering with their work, taking more than their share of their teacher’s attention and generally lowering class morale. Much of this can be prevented. For more than 40 years, nurture groups have been demonstrating that, with the right help and support, such children and young people can successfully and cost-effectively be included in mainstream schools.

Cost:  €150 to cover the cost of resources and books, and also correction of the optional assignment should you wish to submit it for certification.

Concussion is a mild traumatic brain injury that carries serious health risks, which are exacerbated by incorrect concussion management steps. In a student's typical day at school, a concussion can occur during PE, playing a school sports match, playing on the school yard, or even tripping and falling in the classroom. As a member of school staff, your understanding of concussion is critical in firstly, identifying and managing a potential concussion safely and, secondly, helping students successfully recover from their injury upon their return to school. 

Concussion Coach provides Concussion Education Workshops tailored to school staff, designed to improve your understanding of this complex injury, and enable you to manage it safely. Over the course of 60 minutes, Concussion Coach delivers an interactive learning experience exploring the following key areas of concussion:
