Great CSPE resource that I came across recently is important buildings students need to revise for the Junior Cert. https://app.emaze.com/@AFZTILLC/cspe—the-buildings#5 This is very interactive and well worth checking out!
CSPE is a subject which encompasses web 2.0 technology into lessons easily.
For anyone not familiar with what the Action Project is take a look via the pdst website : http://cmsold.pdst.ie/sites/default/files/Action%20Projects%20Explained.pdf and a slight condensed version via scoilnet http://test.scoilnet.ie/Res/joeenglish110899114716_2.htm
Even this website and blog on Action Research Projects which have been undertaken show off how well web 2.0 technology is incorporated into CSPE lessons
Once education resource website I would defiantly encourage any teacher that teaches CSPE or has been involved with it in some shape or form to check out the Oireachtas website. They now have an educational programme http://education.oireachtas.ie/ which is full of great resources and clips.
Even looking at these clips you could encourage students to design the Oireachtas or one of the tours using minecraft for assessment. It is a fun way of learning minecraft and learning how the government works at the same time.
Another resource which I have come across is the CSPE.tv xitizenship education. http://www.cspe.tv/ It is packed with resources and ideas.
There is a an excellent resource on Children of the Holocaust which you can do without dwelling too much on the Holocaust with students but yet highlight the importance of the Holocaust through the Rights and Responsibility section of CSPE.
