#Students, nowadays, are generally considered to be #digital #natives; able to use technology effectively and easily. However, it is equally important to teach your #students how to become #digital #citizens. Use our Digital Literacy series! #EdChatIE

@Webwise_Ireland I'll be honest with you, I'm trying to follow an online discusion and you are off topic relevant and frankly rude. If I cant trust you to be a good digital citizen, why would I trust you on anything else? #edchatie
fboss @fboss
OK - so what's your take on "Is the PME doing enough to prioritise subject knowledge?" Are we talking about "subject knowledge" as important or the skills to using it? #edchatie

@pamelaaobrien I feel the same I did a 4 year Education degree rather than the HDip as it was known, which was one year, now replaced with the 2 year PME #edchatie
E Tumelty @Tumedel
Hi all, Edel, post primary history & Rel Ed teacher: working in Drogheda, living in Monaghan-not sure if I've much to contribute to this, but I'm here #edchatie
Pam @pamelaaobrien
@fboss I have no educational qualification so really feel exposed on this topic :( #edchatie
Laurence Cuffe @CuffeL
#edchatie I don't know what the PME's are doing. I know I have encountered teachers who have completed a Maths conversion course, which was all about maths, and seemed to have no content on maths teaching knowledge.
Shane Bergin @shanedbergin
@fboss @pamelaaobrien My science students (PME and concurrent) use a model of ‘science teacher professional education around productive habit development’. This considers meta, procedural and content knowledge #edchatie journals.aps.org/prper/abstract…
Laurence Cuffe @CuffeL
@Tumedel @fboss @pamelaaobrien I did a Masters in Applied ELearning, but again, thats by no means a mainstream teaching qualification. #edchatie
John Heffernan @johnmayo
What do we mean when we say subject knowledge? Is it subject methodology or content #edchatie

After you have your PME, there's the @niptireland teacherinduction.ie/en/about/about… to support your starting year in a school #edchatie
