Interview with Junior Minister Ciaran Cannon

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!

YMTfm’s interview with Lord David Puttnam

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.

Youth Media Team

Hello world!

An enthusiastic group of young Irish media creatives have dropped into WordPress where they will share snippets, observations and thoughts from events they cover as part of the Youth Media Team. This is their first post, written quickly as a group to test the set-up of YMT.fm on WordPress.


In The Editing Suite

There’s a lot to learn about blogging, content creation during live events, and sharing a workflow while trying to juggle new pieces of technology. But that’s the challenge we like to face with the Youth Media Team crew!
