Lord Puttam at EXCITEDThose who visited and took part in EXCITED – the digital learning festival – would have heard from Ireland’s digital champion Lord David Puttnam CBE who in his speech on the Friday discussed the importance of changing how we run education in Ireland.

After a long day of inviting children from across the country to visit the inaugural EXCITED digital learning festival in Dublin Castle on the June bank holiday weekend, the evening’s events got underway to take a step back from just focusing on the children, to asking how the 500 teachers and influential people involved in the Irish education system can lead a change to integrate more digital learning within the system.
