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!!
