After two days of producing audio interviews, video footage, still imagery and blog posts, five members of the Youth Media Team join Conor Galvin and Bernie Goldbach in a conversation that reveals part of the inside story of their production skills.
It’s important to know that these secondary school students have developed production values as high as many teachers attending the Excited Education Conference. The production workbook being developed by Finn Briody as an ePub will feature in a working group session conducted by Bernie Goldbach at the e-learning summer school in the Dublin Institute of Technology in June 2014. The #elss14 session will discuss fundamental elements of multimedia storytelling by secondary school students. Specific emphasis will focus on capturing the narrative value of media text.

In our interview with Ciaran Cannon, Jack and Dave talked about today’s extremely successful event. Ciaran was the driving force behind today’s event and it would not have been able to take place without him. He also expressed his love for music in the interview, he is a talented musician and performed true colours brilliantly last night on the piano. It is safe to say he is a Jack of all trades!
Dave and Caitlin interviewed Marty Cooper, the inventor of the mobile phone, about his idea for the mobile phone, the future of the phone, other inventions he has created and what he thinks about banning phones in schools.
Jack and Aisling interviewed Lord Puttnam. In the interview, they talked about technology in education, UNICEF, David’s worldwide teaching from his old barn in Cork and they couldn’t help but mention his huge success in film making. Lord Puttnam sits on the Labour benches but he’s not a politician. He believes that technology is the only way forward.
We were lucky enough to get a chance to chat to Dr René Lydiksen of LEGO Education. He talks about his new scheme launched with Mary I in Limerick and how he believes that LEGO can make learning about things such as algorithms fun!
