IF YOU'RE INTERESTED in how to enhance your classroom skills as a teacher, you should head over to the registration page of the ICT in Education Conference  and join 100 others who will meet in LIT-Thurles  to "make, bake and take" away clever ideas. It's part of a long-running series of professional development talks and workshops held for the benefit of teachers everywhere.
I've elaborated on the tagline "Make-Bake-Take" before and think it fits nicely inside the strong theme of information and computing technology that organisers in Thurles have always espoused.
Make. You might have something unique that you've made, reinvented or repurposed for a positive result in your teaching practise. Or you might have broken something during a classroom session and you now have the courage to share lessons learned.
Bake. We want to gather lessons learned, often in a step-by--step process similar to what you might find while baking with a cooking recipe or a lesson plan. If you made it (or broke it), please think about sharing the steps you followed to get a result.
Take. We want simple takeaways. They might be in the form of a slide deck, a list of links, shared bookmarks, a folder on OneDrive or a shipping docket with ingredients inside Drobox. We're gathering all the takeaways in one repository under a Creative Commons Share and Share Alike in one common location for everyone in the #edchatie hashtag community.
