The Irish Independent ran an article recently about the growth in online learning support in Ireland. It was nice for themathstutor.ie to be mentioned as one of the main websites in this area. We've been contacted by a few national journalists recently, so look out for more coverage of our system in the newspapers soon!
Judges, Mentors, Students and Teachers I was delighted to be asked to judge the North Mayo Regional Final of the Student Enterprise Awards last week. There were 9 finalists from 4 local schools, and first prize went to a team from St Muredach's, Ballina, with a very interesting (and tasty!) food product for allergy sufferers!
We have also taken on Hugh to help us with the video production and Moodle side of things. Jonny is continuing to work hard on new quizzes.
So much to tell, but the highlights included meeting the Taoiseach, chatting with Colm O'Neill (CEO of BT) and Sean O'Sullivan (of Dragon's Den) about e-learning, but most of all, checking out the amazing projects and meeting the students who created them!
I'm delighted to be asked to participate, and I'm looking forward to meeting some of the past winners of the award as well as this year's hopeful entrants like ourselves!
Really looking to this event - if you are attending please make sure to come to our stand, we'd love to meet you on the day!
We've created a comprehensive guide to exam technique for Irish maths students called 'Maximise Your Maths Grade', and we are launching it this weekend in Cork. Our friends at Essential French have invited us to give a seminar to Leaving Cert students this weekend, and over 120 have already confirmed their attendance!
