We are delighted to announce that we will be jointly hosting a live webinar, with our JCT Geography colleagues, on Tuesday 3rd March at 7pm. This webinar will explore the "Ireland's Deep Atlantic" Cross-Curricular Classroom Resource. This Classroom Resource, which is available at www.rte.ie/learn offers teachers and students of Business Studies and Geography opportunities to explore themes such as sustainability, ethical consumerism, the impact on a community of organisations and more. It also provides students with insights and purposeful learning opportunities across the three strands of the Business Studies Specification.
During our webinar we will be speaking with Business Studies and Geography Teachers and students to learn how they engaged with this new and exciting Classroom Resource and we look forward to sharing their stories with you on the night.
