WE HAVE USED HANDHELD AUDIO to record extemporaneous thoughts during tutorial sessions in Tipperary Institute for several years. This year, we will set up an Audioboo stream to capture reflections from the largest group of students ever present on the Clonmel campus. It's an historic time and I hope the voices of dozens of creatives will serve to form an audio identity of enthusiastic students who have the ability to contribute to the smart economy. I've asked my first year students to reflect the milestones and goals immediately ahead. They may offer specific answers that show the kinds of pages they will create, the sort of files they will open and the kind of equipment they intend to use in the months ahead. I hope to hear them cite their Twitter nicknames as they describe how they first learned about the creative multimedia programme they have started. A perfect audio sample will reference visual cues, audible moments, tactile responses, and olfactory markers. I plan to compile a cross-section of work and append it to this blog post later.
