The topic for our First Sunday Meeting 5 June, 2016 was Computing for Kids.
Our speaker was Fachtna Roe who has been teaching Computer Science – and rational thinking – to young adults for almost 25 years. He has a strong sense of how to explain the way society has developed to its present point, through understanding how our use of information technology has evolved over 30,000 years.
He works in a vocational school in preference to voluntary schools such as where he was himself enrolled as a boy, working in the only State controlled second-level school in Clonmel, Co. Tipperary.
He joined the HAI board in 2014 to help generally with moving the cause of Humanism forward in Ireland, particularly in the area of education.
