A community of practice for educators at all levels and all sectors interested in teaching computing



The Computers in Education Society of Ireland (CESI) is the teacher professional network for anyone with an interest in the potential of technology to enhance the teaching and learning experience for all involved in education. CESI•CS focuses on computing.

In 2017 CESI welcomed the announcement of the intended introduction of Computer Science as a Leaving Certificate Subject. Members are also involved in the Junior Cycle Short Course in Coding, some are developing Computational Thinking in Primary and there is representation from third level too.

Following the successful application to Google for sponsorship for 2018-2019, CESI is expanding the number of meetings and is developing ways to sustain the community through local efforts. Meetings are now being organised in these education centres, to be followed by further meetings in the spring and summer:

All meetings start at 7pm and finish at 9pm.
