On March 2014, the staff in LMETB (Louth and Meath Education and Training Board) held a very interesting training session in their offices in Navan. The topic of the training was Using Science Fiction in the classroom. It was very well received and people were interested in implementing the genre in a number of different subject areas and with a number of different age groups.

It was a great forum for discussing ideas and teachers really enjoyed sharing ideas and looking at common areas within subject areas where Science Fiction might be used to stimulate interest or some creativity.

The toolkit was also very well received and it was felt that as a resource it will be of benefit to both teachers and learners.

One final comment from teachers on the training was that a very deep knowledge of Science Fiction is not required, all that is needed is an interest in the area and some areas that you like, such as movies, games or books.
