DURING AN INTRODUCTORY session with new students on our Clonmel Digital Campus, I asked how many people were using Instagram and more than half of the audience raised their hands. Although fewer than a half dozen said they had posted to Instagram that morning, my simple survey suggests Instagram is the pocket media channel of choice for our creative students. Continue reading

I HAVE FIVE MORE welcoming addresses to enjoy before I hang up my whiteboard markers. Today, I'm taking notes in a yellow Moleskine journal during the annual welcoming address. As in previous years, I plan to annotate some notes with rectangles, some with stars, and some with exclamation points. Each of those annotations indicates a call to action I should consider. Continue reading

I'M VISITING a f ew art supply shops in Limerik today, hoping to find a purple Derwent pencil. I share my pencils with my two primary school children and the purple one is most likely to be chewed down to its core. Continue reading

THE IDEA STARTED years ago with an email from John Tierney, an archaeologist who thought I might share a passion for exploring the past. Back then, in 2008, we compared notes while visiting the graves inside the Rock of Cashel. More than a decade later, I'm taking those graveside thoughts into a community project I'll name #MyClonmel and watch young teens along with third level creative students uncover layers of a town's past.

WE SPENT MORE THAN SIX HOURS inside One Microsoft Place and learned how to create Sphero Chariots before donning Hololens (in the photo) to catch over-sized insects running around Microsoft Dreamspace in Dublin. This was a major life event for 11yo Mia, 8yo Dylan, and three members of the Youth Media Team. I wish every primary school student in Ireland could avail of this engaging experience.

I BROKE A SUMMER PROMISE when I purchased another Audible title and then started listening to The Art of Noticing immediately--instead of spending hours under Irish sunshine digging out a new garden. I blame both Rob Walker and Mitch Joel for this transgression. Continue reading

I HAVE SEVERAL BOXES of cables and connectors stacked inside our garage and inside my work space. And I'm delighted whenever I discover an old item gives new functionality to some of my long-standing pieces of recording gear. Today, I enjoyed a simple recording session with XLR mics providing audio inputs to my Samsung Note 9. I captured the workflow in a Topgold Audio Clip on Spreaker. Continue reading

The Brydge keyboard didn't work when I tried it on a Sony Xperia Z5 last year. I will give it a second look now that the Android operating system has updated.

With the help of creative intern Claire Bentley and the guidance of festival director Cliona Maher, 10 episodes will complement the 2019 running of the Clonmel Junction Arts Festival. Continue reading

IMAGINING THAT one of my descendants in the late 2090s might be interested in what I was thinking near the start of the 21st century, I wonder what my great great grandparents, like Elizabeth Anders McKelvey (above), might have told me about living in 18th century Ireland. Continue reading

AFTER ONE WEEK looking to Twitter to spread the word about "Ideas in Education" and getting over 2500 impressions that generated more than 1000 media plays, we have achieved only two percent conversion. But I have learned that short videos that show stories about people doing things perform much better. Continue reading

I'VE DISCOVERED fascinating cross-talk beyond the 448 page Mueller Report. Local radio host Fran Curry counted on me to digest the large document so I printed it for him and then went on air to localise its content for Tipperary listeners. Continue reading
