Promoting Numeracy with Number Millionaire

September 16, 2016

Second year students got the opportunity to take part in Number Millionaire, an initiative run by Ms Sandra Quaid and the numeracy team in Desmond College.

Students played the game that is based on the ever popular television programme.

It allowed students to showcase their numeracy skills in a fun and comfortable atmosphere.

Over the coming school year students will get more opportunities to partake in further activities that will be run by the numeracy team.

iPad Education Success

September 15, 2016

It’s that time of year again, when our First Year students receive their iPads equipped with the books and apps required for the year ahead.

It is no doubt that iPad education has been a tremendous success since we launched the initiative this time last year. Our students have become masters in the use of ICT and have a new respect for education.

Desmond College has shown leadership in learning through the use of technology, we have taken the steps required to become fully equipped to deliver education to our students to the highest of standards.

We have taken a professional approach to the deployment of iPads in Desmond College – we have the assistance of a company called Wriggle.

The Wriggle team have the expertise and the experience necessary to successfully integrate technology into the education environment. They are currently working with a number of the leading schools across the Country and provide outstanding 1:1 support to our students, teachers and parents.
