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.

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.

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!
