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

Starting #ictedu with the Youth Media Team

We’re starting at the ICTeducation conference in Thurles by looking at our workflow that we use to produce audio segments during the day. You can follow the conversation, the photos, and interesting short conversations by viewing the hashtag #ictedu on most social networks

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.
