FOR THE FIRST TIME, I know people on Ireland's Rich List. The Sunday Times puts the Collison Brothers, Colm Lyon and two Brown Bag animators on The Sunday Times Rich List and I've met all four of the lads in different places throughout Ireland and France. It's nice to see success touch the lives of deserving people. Continue reading

AFTER MAJOR EVENTS--the ones that flit in and out of my dreams--I believe it's important to note what happened in terms of personal development but also to consider what cosmic event might have occurred for others who share the same interests. The past two days are that significant. Continue reading

WE TOOK THE KIDS to LIT-Thurles for a Maker Meet and enjoyed the best hands-on evening ever. Both Mia (8) and Dylan (4) had more fun than they ever expected. The only downside is that both of these young student expect the same sort of inspiration from their primary schools. Continue reading

I'M WORKING WITH a cadre of clever creative multimedia students and today we spent part of a lab session making a live Facebook Stream on The Gathering Table just outside the entrance to our campus in Clonmel, County Tipperary. It might be the first instance of a live Facebook stream on an Irish college campus. Continue reading

OUR 8YO DAUGHTER is mesmerised by the story of the Titanic because of what she hears in her primary school classroom. She is asking questions at home while sharing facts through storyboards such as the Commaful frames embedded above. Continue reading

I WATCH FACEBOOK LIVE download on my iPhone 5C, hoping it would find its way to my Android phone (seen updating above) but it didn't. Now I wonder what I should do with the new-found capability because I don't want to create another way for my friends to ignore me. Continue reading

I HAVE VOLUMES of notes and years of experience that I share every year with third level students in Ireland. I hope to build upon the experience of the Social Savvy Conference by sharing what I've learned about effective social networking with 120 students in modules I teach for the Limerick Institute of Technology. Continue reading

I SPENT A DAY learning from others at #SocialSavvy16 about how to create and share content online. I finished with a tick-off list that my creative multimedia students will be able to immediately apply to the promotion of both their personal brands to the reputation of their academic programme. Continue reading

I INVITED 8YO Mia to listen to dozens of accents on before she added her own voice. If you have an iPhone, you could add your voice too. Continue reading

I ROUTINELY ASK to be invited to meetings if they include an agenda because when they don't, I have to listen to people who want "air" time to pontificate. Lately, I've been trying to push meetings off into collaborative space where action items can be checked off when accomplished remotely. Continue reading

I FIRST HEARD of first person view (FPV) drone racing while listening to an episode of the Daily Tech News Show. Then I found YouTube videos about racing quadcopters through challenging terrain at improbable speeds. Continue reading

THE SUNDAY TIMES has a lovely article about the Irish animation industry today [1] and it caused me to think of the lovely work Cartoon Saloon has put into its artful productions. Continue reading

I ATTENDED THE THIRD DAY of the ePortfolio Conference in the Dublin Institute of Technology and finished with a renewed imperative to enhance my own ePortfolio and to advocate an option for portfolio reviews of applicants to our third level creative degrees. Continue reading

Thanks for sharing. It's these little Ewan Nuggets that makes me glad I've your Old Skool Blog in my Slow Feeds Aggregator.
I SPENT THE AFTERNOON in a computer lab with teachers, lecturers and trainers during the third day of ePortfolioHub16. One of my happiest results came at the end of the day when I clicked into the co-authored Sway produced by those attending my workshop. Continue reading

BECAUSE OUR ENERGETIC daughter wants to share stories with friends, I showed her Pencil on my Android phone and she made a story. Then she tapped into the UsePencil site on the Surface Pro 2 and discovered it was much easier. Continue reading

IT'S ST PATRICK'S DAY in Ireland but if you had the calendar used by my Stateside family, it's late. It seems most of the local Paddy's Day festivities in my former stomping grounds happened last weekend, which means when my Facebook images start bubbling up in newsfeeds today my closest family will think I'm having a senior moment. Continue reading

IN MARCH 1986, I often sat in the right seat of a large cargo jet and taught pilots in the left seat how to fly directly behind another large four engine jet. You had to practise the manual skills to do this workplace job right. Continue reading

THE FACE OF KELLY GRAY sits on my Surface screen as we continue planning for the day-long ICT in Education Conference on Saturday, April 23, on the campus of LIT-Thurles. Kelly is a character developed by Becky O'Regan, an animation student studying on the Clonmel campus of the Limerick Institute of Technology (LIT). Continue reading

I'M LATE TO THE waves created on Anchor, a short form audio app focused on threaded in-hand audio conversations. I think Ruth Arnold gives a very good impression of the app in a series of two minute snippets that I cobbled together and shared on Audioboom. Continue reading

FOR AS GOOD AS elegant virtual connections are, there are compelling reasons to meet up and share real conversation with small groups of friends. I am missing that collegiality nowadays. Continue reading

AS PART OF A CORE GROUP of third level lecturers who want to accelerate collaboration, I'm trying to make Yammer work inside a third level institution while connected at the fringes of Office 365. But because I can't see group work things in Yammer's snappy app, it appears the collaborative effort will succeed only when working with friends on desktops. Continue reading
