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 (Click for RSS feed). I've also mentioned a dozen people who didn't get a shout-out but who are part of my online audio conversations.
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.
After a meaningful planning session, I'm reflecting on how we could mount a more effective plan to attack some very challenging tasks ahead. Simply put, I'd use some Design Thinking tacked onto some mobile apps that have served me and my creative students well during the past three years. I have become dependent on Airtable, OneNote, and Trello.
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.
