Educator feedback from the event

“I think this is an event that is needed and I can see it growing year on year. I would suggest you set a date as soon as you can for 2023 (if you haven’t already!) and it will be in the diary as a ‘must see’ for educators.”

“The last panel discussion was really timely, hearing first hand accounts from young people who were failed in various ways by mainstream education and yet the world hadn’t ended, far from it, was inspiring (sounds cheesy but I mean it).”

 

Educator feedback from the event

“Professional, fruitful, engaging and innovative.”

“Firstly well done. The event was very professionally organised and a great opportunity to meet people from both formal and informal education sectors with an interest in this area, so the whole team should be very pleased. Take a bow.”


“To me it feels like a ‘movement’ rather than a one day event. I will happily spread the word”

Kinia Credentials: Receive accreditation as Recognition of your professional development with Kinia 

Educators in classrooms and youth settings across the country have worked incredibly hard over the last few years to accelerate their digital skills, knowledge and confidence in using technology for learning. We want to acknowledge and celebrate this by awarding Kinia Credentials as part of a Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) process in 2022.

You can apply for a Kinia Credential if you have successfully completed in-person or online Kinia Training (or previously TechSpace and/or Camara) in the last 4 years, have applied skills and can document evidence.

Kinia Credentials

 Kinia Credentials are a set of stackable awards achieved by educators when they engage in our professional development training courses. Learning outcomes from Kinia modules and, the application of these skills in classrooms and youth services, will be recognised, stored in a certified digital portfolio and endorsed by a range of industry and education partners.

These credentials are endorsed and supported by Google, Hibernia College, Creative Ireland, ESB, Medtronic, Department of Tourism, Culture Arts, Gaeltacht, Sports and Media.
