Since 2018, Conradh na Gaeilge have worked alongside The Techspace programme to support them reach their goals. We have two Cluster Coordinators that oversee schools throughout Leinster working with The Techspace Programme. See below and meet our Coordinators.
What is the Techspace Programme
The TechSpace programme is a creative technology network for educators to take part in training and upskilling, and to help each other with digital media and STEAM.
From first-day training to support sessions, and equipment support, our team will give guidance to your organisation. After taking part in training, educators can find plenty of support from the Kinia Network, an online platform where educators can share material, be inspired, agus gain support for the classroom with our classroom lessons and step-by-step activities
Who is it for?
The TechSpace programme is suitable for educators in Irish schools at primary and secondary level, Gaeltachts and in youth clubs/groups/
What importance does it have?
Nowadays, young people live in a world surrounded by Technology, and The Techspace programme wants to enable them to be technological creators, not just consumers of it.
Young people will have the chance to take part in activities surrounding digital creativity and STEAM. There is huge emphasis on creativity, something that is focused on hugely with The Techspace Programme.
Creative Tech Fest
Creative Tech Fest is a yearly event that is open to young people from the ages of 8 to 18. Youth Workers, team members, voluntary workers or teachers that took part in training with Camara Ireland are entitled to support young people in taking part with their youth groups or class.
Tech Féile is the biggest event where young people can celebrate their creative and technological projects. Starting on the 18th of January, and finishing with an online closing ceremony on the 25th of March, each school or club will submit a project as a group this year.
