I WISH I had saved the stained and torn recipes my mom had stuffed inside her Betty Crocker Cookbook because they were the tastes that influenced our home in the last half of the 20th century. Moreover, many of those recipes came from Iowa where mom wrote down the exact method used by her mother to create meals. Continue reading

I HAVE FOND memories of growing up I a rural environment with corn across the road and cycling adventures unfolding on narrow roads where cars seemed out of place. Because I think our two young Irish children would enjoy that too, we've rented a small bungalow in County Tipperary to get their impressions. Continue reading

ONE OF THE ADVANTAGES of living away from the sound of industrialised activities is you can better hear the world of our grandparents. And that's one of the unexpected pleasures of watching young school children interpret rural Ireland. Continue reading

BEHIND THE HEADLINE entry points data, the an Irish Times Freedom of Information Act result shows "more than 12 per cent of honours degree courses listed by universities and institutes of technology are taking in fewer than 10 students". [1] Joe Humphreys, the writer of the article, does not speculate why. Continue reading

I LIKE WINDOWS 10 for several reasons and can base my opinion on running the preview edition for several weeks. In my experience, Edge is faster than Chrome. And Cortana is better than Google Now, especially when connected to the Bluetooth head unit in our car. Continue reading

I AM ALWAYS intrigued by personal data stored on Google's timelines and now with the demise of Google Plus, I want to create my own scraper that can follow my cloud-based moments, archiving them for generations to review. Right now I have 800 megabytes of media from three hours spent in Clonakilty's model railway village. It would be nice to access all those curated elements when 4yo Dylan enters his 20s. I think Dave Winer has devised the workflow that best approaches a design process for what I want and it means nominating a central host (like a personal blog) as the main information hub where the crawling and archiving begins.

ALTHOUGH MANY BREAKING stories emerge on Twitter, you often need to sift through the casual and banal to find info that matters--unless you enjoy the signal-to-noise ratio of @MagicRecs. Continue reading

I'M IN DUBLIN for Bloomsday and the occasion allows me to connect with Mitch Joel, a man I knew as a rock and roll journalist years ago. Today, Mitch continues to share creative ideas with international audiences in person and through syndicated media with Mirum, an agency changing the future of advertising and marketing.

ONE OF THE easiest wins in my personal productivity involves using Office Delve, a new app on my Android handset. It presents images and links, in a Flipboard-friendly way, of things related to business productivity. Continue reading

I AM FASCINATED with the current tension between the private citizen Denis O'Brien and the public interest. It's an issue playing out in the Irish courts while stifled in the Irish press. Continue reading

I AM BEMUSED at the ridiculous situation that Irish billionaire Denis O’Brien (known as #redacted on Twitter) has created for the world to view about the way investigative journalism is conducted. James Morrissey, the spokesman for #redacted, uses Irish radio to condemn an Irish parliamentarian, Deputy Catherine Murphy, for “peddling lies” in the Dail (Irish Parliament) but listeners cannot be told what she has alleged. Continue reading

I WALKED THE HALLS of #edtech15 to find ways to enhance in-hand student engagement. I think my primary conclusion takes me back into Moodle (screenshot below). Continue reading

SOME OF OUR best creative minds will jump directly from an Ordinary Degree into the workplace. As someone who needed six years from high school to a professional career, I’m passionate about how graduates enter today's digitally-enhanced space. I personally believe many of our current graduates need more than a college degree to do well. Continue reading

Sara Jo Chipps appeared in my social media flow the other day, tweeting about sexual and racist jokes in the workplace. I've saved her string of tweets because I have three daughters who have to navigate work centres where they might not control the demeanour of those places. Continue reading

I'VE LISTENED TO Peter Thiel, the entrepreneur and venture capitalist, on several occasions. I'm certain the creative multimedia students in our Emerging Trends module will learn as much as I have so we're dissecting Thiel's Zero to One: Notes on Startups as part of an exercise in building for the future.

WHILE HEARING MOANING from brands and marketing teams after Facebook changed its newsfeed algorithm, I noticed videos I upload to Facebook quickly ramp up to more views than I have real friends. The screenshot shows what happened on a lazy Sunday morning after I uploaded a 10-minute newsround to Facebook. Continue reading

ON THE HEELS of another ICT in Education Conference, I noticed the biggest cross-talk and sharing is happens when images or videos are shared. Knowing that behaviour, I'm going to try to upload a sketch a day onto my InsideView blog. Continue reading

IRELAND'S ICT in Education Conference pointed a laser at the fabric of future classrooms during a series of presenations and workshops. But I think many of the educators watching the day's events in Thurles could easily have missed what several prognosticators were saying about trends involving hardware and software. Continue reading
