#innovationisland: Oileán Árainn Mhór

October 5, 2019 @ 12:30 pm - 3:30 pm

#innovationisland_oilean_arainn_mhor_arranmore_island_Donegal_Connect

Take a trip to Arranmore Island off the Co Donegal coast to hear at first hand how the island is innovating to promote growth and create a sustainable future for the next generations. During this informal workshop, speakers will cover:

  • Codordojo Árainn Mhór: Arranmore Island was the first in the north west to set up a Coderdojo – a kids coding club. The club is passing digital skills on to local children and has attracted tech experts from as far away as the City of London to come as guest mentors. Hear from the club co-ordinator and the children who take part.
  • Elearning hub: The island’s secondary school is participating in this national project which offers virtual classes in e.g. sciences subjects like Physics,which would not otherwise be available.
  • The cross-island Connectivity Digital Hub project: Find out more about MODAM – Ireland’s first offshore shared digital workspace and the partnership with Three Ireland.
  • Remote Working and Virtual Offices: The island’s reputation for technical innovation and breathtaking beauty is spreading far and wide. This has led to enquiries from people interested in working remotely from the island, and businesses interested in setting up offices there.

There will be an opportunity for Questions and Answers and a look around the island before you leave.  Arranmore Ferry details here and https://arranmoreferry.com
