We are delighted that our software Know Your Ireland was featured in the new book by Robbie O’Leary and John O’Mahoney called ICTs in the Primary School - Teaching & Learning for the 21st Century.

Know Your Ireland (EdWare): This program is an example of Irish produced software that attains the highest professional standards. It incorporates an attractive and stimulating way for pupils to learn everything there is to know about Irish physical geography...


All primary schools in Ireland were mailed a copy of the book earlier in the year. If you wish to purchase a copy, you can at the Dublin West Education Centre, they have an order form you can complete and mail to them.

About the book:
The book explores the myriad of ways that ICTs can transform education: how the use of technology can transform schools and classrooms, transform how teachers work, and above all, transform how children learn. It also examines the unlimited power of modern technology to enliven, to stimulate, to motivate, to excite and to inspire. As such, this book will be of enormous interest to teachers and student teachers.

The book is published by the Dublin West Education Centre in conjunction with the National Centre for Technology in Education and Navan Education Centre.
