In an interview with Michael Galvin, head of Cisco’s Galway R&D plant with siliconrepublic.com, featured on Independent.ie and reffered to on NetworkWorld.com, he adressed the problem of insufficent science and technology graduates in Ireland.  He highlighted 3 areas to be addressed:

  • Focus on science in primary school.
  • Increased use of technology to communicate as students do outside of the classroom.
  • Teachers to equip the student’s with problem solving skills and ‘reskill its workforce to become knowledge  orchestrators’.

Science at primary level has recently been overhauled and there is now a postgraduate certificate/dipolma in Teaching Science at Primary level in University College Cork.  The 2nd and 3rd points refer to second level; certainly it’s hard to argue against that we should be communicating with students in a way they understand in order to engender uderstanding, and we should be allowing the students to work together to create and develop their knowledge, as they will have to in the workplace.
