UNIVERSAL DESIGN FOR LEARNING
An interactive CPD workbook I designed for my school. This workbook will allow teachers to develop their understanding of UDL while also enhancing their use of TEL develop. The CPD experience itself is designed by me using UDL.

After the fantastic learning experience that was the ADE institute of 2019 I have began using digital sketchnoting in the classroom. This video along with the two below are examples of work produced by me and my students.
This is some of my own work to help motivate students and demonstrate how sketchnoting can be used.
ELECTRONIC COMPONENTS SKETCHNOTE
A student's sketchnote for electronic components. The student created this using keynote and has shared it. Every sketchnote a student creates is an example of the students creating content for me to use in future lessons.
VIRTUAL LEARNING ENVIRONMENT
Since 2017 I have been an administrator for our VLE in Kingswood Community College. Along with a colleague we set up all user profiles for students and staff, create courses for each class and conduct CPD for staff and students. Prior to our adoption of Schoology I also worked with iTunes U in 2016 in a similar role.
ENHANCING CBA'S PROJECT
For 2019 I am leading our schools involvement in a CBA project to help teachers expand their practices around classroom based assessments in line with the new Junior Cycle. This project will involve me attending workshops and providing CBA to staff based on the skills I've developed.
