New forum for teachers of technology subjects .......
A new edtech portal created by Ger Power DES and aimed at teachers of the technology subjects is now open to the public.   The portal has an individual forum for each of the technology subjects, a blog for discussions in areas of interest and various videos and photographs.  Use the link below to access the portal and we would encourage teachers to become involved.  In view of the development of this initiative we have decided for the moment at least not to re-launch the T4 forum as previously planned.
