SUPERSTAR KOBE BRYANT died with eight others in a tragic helicopter accident along a route I used to travel in southern California. Kobe was a real-life superhero in my eyes. On the court, he always came through for his team. After retirement, he lifted the lives of many others in his charity work.
His death has reverberated around the Irish campus where I work as students express how they discovered the legacy of one of the world's most talented basketball players. I've summarised the research four students did as part of a 30 minute research period we carved out during a part of a Web Content Management Systems module taught on the BSc in Creative Media Design. You can see action figures like the one of Kobe Bryant scattered throughout our Clonmel campus.
