The presentation of
a chosen topic using the PowerPoint application.
AIM: To encourage the
students to use their computer skills to improve their oral,
aural and written abilities in the Irish language.
1. I began by explaining to the students what was involved
in this project. We did a brainstorming exercise on the blackboard
to get an overview of the task. I allowed time for a question
and answer session whereby the students could further familiarize
themselves with the work involved in the project.
2. The next class involved the choosing of topics. I gave
the students suggestions for what they might choose. I then
broke the class up into small groups to allow them to share
some ideas on what they were going to do.
3. The students were then given time to prepare their chosen
topics. For some this meant a small amount of preparation.
Others, who chose a more difficult topic had to do more research.
Subjects chosen included Mo Cheantar, Saol na Scoile, Ceol,
Faisean, Déagoirí and Mo Chaitheamh Aimsire. (These topics
could be more difficult and detailed depending on the students
