The launch was performed live over the web by Charlie McConalogue TD, FF Spokesperson on Education and Skills. An appropriate way to launch an e-learning system!
MathsFest itself was hugely enjoyable, there was a huge buzz from having 500 maths teachers in one place! It was great to speak with so many Irish maths teachers, to get their feedback on TheMathsTutor.ie, and to learn more about how we can support them in their role as educators.
We were really struck by the enthusiasm of teachers for innovative learning resources for their students, and by their willingness to advise us on what is needed and what works best in the real world.
We've come away with even more inspiration, energy and drive for the task in hand, and with the support of Irish teachers, we know we can help make a big difference to even more Irish maths students.
We also distributed over 1800 complimentary copies of our exam technique booklet on the day, as a small gift to Irish maths students. Teachers have already got back to us to tell us they have gone down a treat back at school - great to hear that!
If you entered the draw for the Kensington Presenters, we will be drawing the lucky winners over the weekend, just as soon as we get time - the site has been hopping since last weekend!
