Mata ar Líne is a set of 80 fun curriculum-based maths games, available online as Gaeilge, suitable for primary school pupils and teachers.
Funded by An Chomhairle um Oideachas Gaeltachta agus Gaelscolaíochta (COGG), all Gaelscoileanna and Gaeltacht schools in the country have been given access to the online facility.
In addition, COGG has purchased a licence from the developer iLearn to provide universal access for primary schools to this excellent resource for a period of three years. Teachers, pupils and parents in all primary schools in Ireland can access the games for free, 24 hours a day, through www.iLearn.ie.
The maths activities are an excellent support to the revised maths curriculum as well as developing general numeracy skills. They will be a useful resource for all Irish medium schools, north and south.
Schools looking for relevant content to use with interactive whiteboards and digital projectors will welcome the announcement.
Muireann Ní Mhóráin, Príomhfheidhmeannach of COGG said:
“It is fantastic that this is available free of charge to all primary schools on the island of Ireland…
“The online maths activities in the Irish language will be immensely valuable to the Irish medium schools in the country as well as providing an interactive and fun learning resource for the teaching of Irish in English medium schools.”
