Working with the Youth Media Team since Day One.

Interview with Malahide Community School

Today at #cesicon Caitlin and Monique interviewed students from Malahide Community School.

We asked four members of their I.T. team  about  their presentation and their work in relation to technology in  their school.  It was interesting to listen to the student’s voice on why technology is so important in schools today and on how it played a part in their learning.

Interview with Sinead Herlihy and Tony Riley

Today at #cesion Monique and Caitlin interviewed Sinead Herlihy and Tony Riley.

The conference opened with Sinead and Tony speaking of the various tips and tricks that can be used while playing the invigorating game of Minecraft. They discussed how we can incorporate minecraft into our education system. Not only allowing kids to have fun but enabling them to learn in the process.

Interview with Brendan Tangney

Today at #cesicon Caitlin and Monique interviewed Brendan Tangney following his keynote address.

Brendan opened the conference by speaking about his work with Bridge 21. We asked him about getting girls more involved and engaged with subjects such as maths and science and about the challenges going with that. He also told us about how Bridge 21 has impacted on both the students and teachers involved and this is important for them.

Interview with YMT – Who, What, Where and How?

We are a group of attendees at the CESI conference 2017 in St. Patrick’s College DCU. Elaine McAuliffe from Scoil Dara, Kilcock; Cara McDermott from Cavan Institute; Catherine Fox from CMETB and Martin Bailey from Animate2Educate. The Youth Media Team have provided us with an amazing opportunity to learn more about what they do, how they do it, etc, etc.

The tables were turned as we were tasked with interviewing them. Within 5 minutes we had learned about all the incredible work they do, and were enriched with ideas as we return to our workplaces.

It’s actually much more straightforward than we anticipated and every school should be implementing this!

The proof – we put this post together in 20 minutes!!

In conversation with Noel Keenan, Tarbert Comprehensive School #ictedu

Noel Keenan, Tarbert Comprehensive School is one of the attendees of this year’s #ictedu conference in LIT Thurles. Noel is a highly experienced teacher with a long history in the field of ICT, with 25 years of ICT usage in the classroom. In fact, Noel was the first teacher in the school to use a computer and projector in the school – the projector still works! He hopes to acquire further knowledge and improve his general ICT skills during the course of the day. @ymtfm, #ymtfm

Recap of @YMTfm at #ExcitedIRL

Excited IRL YMT

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.
