I'M GLAD THAT I HAVE a relatively quiet weekend ahead because it's going to take a few hours for me to decompress several significant outcomes related to a field trip our creative media students completed in Dublin. The five students got specialised attention while inside Workday and Google. We got tailored content and special treatment. Continue reading

WE GET AN INSIDE VIEW of Google's accelerated mobile publishing along with deep insights about a current Adwords programme when visiting Google's Dublin offices with a small crew of creative media students from the Limerick Institute of Technology.

AFTER MORE THAN a year and a half listening and talking on Anchor.fm, I can most assuredly say I've encountered dozens of very contented people using Anchor radio. It's a small community (probably no more than 550 active members) but there's enough diversity to make my Anchor experience the equivalent of a multicultural audio scrapbook. Continue reading

ONE OF MY MOST favourite activities is walking along the banks of the River Suir (pictured) and I'm happy to watch Claire Butler create clever content that will promote the River Suir Blueway. Claire is in her final year of the Creative Multimedia degree programme in the Limerick Institute of Technology and her work will help an international audience discover some of the special places I have enjoyed while living in County Tipperary Continue reading

AS WE START another day-long workshop with Ireland's Youth Media Team, I am burrowing behind the pages and tweaking some code on the Wordpress site.

ALONG WITH MORE THAN 50 students, I'm diving deep into several projects that I'm tracking with Trello's boards. And I'm complementing the tick-off lists with audio and video collateral. Continue reading

I'M TRYING TO alert college students to the importance of carying around mental outlines of speeches so they're never without a coherent presentation if they're door-stepped by prospective employers. One of the best tactics for this important life skill is keeping notes close to hand, either in little journals or in mobile apps. Continue reading

I LIKE HOW ZAPIER can automate the checklists we use on Trello cards with our creative media programme. Zaps can automatically find a checklist item on a Trello card, then mark it as complete. Zaps can automatically add checklist items to a Trello card. Continue reading

I SPEND PART of many weekends rewinding social audio conversations and today I've made 20 "shout-outs" to regulars who stop by my watering hole at Anchor.fm/topgold. I've also mentioned a dozen people who didn't get a shout-out but who are part of my online audio conversations. Continue reading

ONE NOTE'S AUDIO quality surprises me when I use a lapel microphone to offer feedback to students as they complete assignments in our third level modules. I've enclosed a short sample at the bottom of this post. Continue reading

BE ABLE TO CREATE. That's a mantra I've long respected since joining forces with a small cluster of colleagues in the sunny southeast of Ireland. And over the years, I've watched a collaborative creative framework evolve with capable tools to match. Continue reading

BIG PROPS TO the lads from Munster Rugby for letting our Youth Media Team learn about the influence of primary school teachers on athletes who want to play at the highest level. James Harte, Peter O'Mahony, and Billy Holland stopped for a five minute chat with the teens in YMT.fm media crew. The eight YMT team members are in Dublin this weekend to cover the annual Teachers' Council Conference. Munster Rugby is in Dublin for the annual derby when they will crush Leinster in the Aviva Stadium.

I'M TAKING BABY STEPS into Spreaker, a podcasting platform I've watched evolve during the past three years. I like what I see of Spreaker's content management system and I'm going to challenge the Spreaker system this weekend with a series of audio interviews conducted by members of the Youth Media Team as they cover the annual teachers conference in Dublin. [Bernie Goldbach is moving six years of content from Audioboo to Spreaker during the next week.] Continue reading

According to my surgeon, only 10 percent of pancreatic cancer patients are eligible for surgery. Had I not been one of them, there would have been, essentially, no useful treatment. Following surgery, it was a week before the pathology report on the bits and pieces taken from my body was ready. In words you and I can understand, here is what it said, the short version: The mass in my pancreas was positive for pancreatic adenocarcinoma – pancreatic cancer to you and me. via www.timegoesby.net Gaining strength while reading Ronni's heartfelt commentary.
