The Excited Digital Learning Festival took place on the 30th May 2014. There were a lot of highlights but meeting Lord David Puttnam certainly topped them! I was also thrilled to speak on the same panel as Marty Mobile ;) Minister Ciaran Cannon and the three rockstars, Sophie Healy Thow, Emer Hickey and Ciara Judge, were inspirational to say the least.
