Laura and Sinead interviewed Entrepreneur Ingrid Vanderveldt, who is the leader of numerous programs at DELL. She talked to us about her ‘Empowering One Billion Women By 2020′ and how she think that if the world is going to be turned around that it has to be done through a new set of eyes, which is the eyes of women. She also talked to us about her leadership and how she thinks sport has the same concept of thinking as setting up a business. We had great fun interviewing Ingrid!

The Flip in Tipp

Bianca Ní Ghrógáin was talking at ICTEDU2013 in LIT Thurles about ‘Flipping your classroom’. She spoke about making fun educational videos to show her classes to learn in a different way. She would use Go Animate, Powerpoint,  podcasts,  Moviemaker  and  PlanetNutshell to explain topics to the children. The children can then make their own little videos to show other children. They would even want to make a movie to teach their teachers and parents topics that they aren’t familiar with!

Bianca likes the fact that you’re focusing on learning and not focusing on the technology itself. Flipping the classroom has made the children she teaches more confident and they wanted to teach each other.
