Event Details

Research in TCD has developed a set of guidelines for the design of maths learning activities which are technology-mediated, contextualised and which resonant with a view of mathematics as a problem-solving activity in which students construct their own knowledge through the solution of real world problems. Attendees will be given the opportunity to participate as active learners in activities designed according to these principles and delivered using the Bridge21 methodology.
• ‘Probability and Plinko’, constructing a Plinko (Galton) board to statistically analyse the paths taken by marbles as they fall.
• ‘The Pond Filling Activity’, a hands-on exercise in problem-solving, estimation, area and volume.
• ‘The Human Catapult’, using video tracking and dynamic geometry to model the trajectory of a projectile.
• ‘Barbie Bungee’, using video tracking, spread sheets and dynamic geometry to investigate line of best fit and harmonic series.
This workshop is suitable for Junior and Senior cycle maths/applied maths/physics teachers.

Bridge 21

Bridge21 are proud to offer several innovative computing workshops for teachers and educators. After participation in the workshops (details below), participants will have developed a number of new technical skills and will be confident planning activities involving digital media production, programming and computational thinking. The workshops will also be useful for educators and mentors who are  engaged in informal education through Club-houses, CoderDojo, TechSpace and other similar youth programmes.

All of the sessions are hands-on in nature and are delivered using the Bridge21 learning model. All workshops will take place in Trinity College Dublin, selected workshops will take place in our purpose-designed learning space in Oriel House, Fenian Street, Dublin 2, which is located just off the main Trinity College Dublin campus – (see map here). The workshops are subject to availability of resources and sufficient demand.

If you have any queries or if you’d just like to be kept up to date about what’s going on, please email jake at bridge21.ie .
