Blackrock Education Centre is located in the grounds of IADT, Dún Laoghaire, Co. Dublin. The Centre is a bright, naturally lit building surrounding a central courtyard. BEC has developed considerable expertise in the educational use of digital media, environmental education and educational publishing.
We promote initiatives created by FÍS
based in IADT, Ireland’s leading college for digital media. BEC has produced award winning websites www.somethingfishy.ie and www.trails.ie which combine our interest in environment and in digital media. A recent innovation is Paddy’s School Garden available on our website.
BEC is the HQ for Junior Certificate Schools Programme http://jcsp.slss.ie , the Transition Year Support Service http://ty.slss.ie and the Associates and Local Facilitator Administration ALFA. An attractive feature of the Centre is Marian’s Wood to the rear of the Centre, a native woodland established by her friends to commemorate Marian Rollins an inspirational teacher who died prematurely some years ago.
