I SPEND A LOT OF TIME working in remote locations so I'm grateful for the ease of use I get with my durable Brydge keyboard. It connects to my Note 9 the moment I switch it on with no requirement to push a button or select a setting.
I HAVE RENEWED my focus on collaborative workflow now that the spring semester has started. At the moment, it means reviewing items in the PR Stack, a practical guide to tools and workflow edited by Stephen Waddington.
I'M WORKING WITH a cadre of clever creative multimedia students and today we spent part of a lab session making a live Facebook Stream on The Gathering Table just outside the entrance to our campus in Clonmel, County Tipperary. This might be the first instance of a live Facebook stream on an Irish college campus: https://youtu.be/jcfZgiMk7i4
I SPENT THE AFTERNOON in a computer lab with teachers, lecturers and trainers during the third day of ePortfolioHub16. One of my happiest results came at the end of the day when I clicked into the co-authored Sway produced by those attending my workshop.
I think we have a winning workflow here that starts with Mia snapping photos and screenshots of things she enjoys. Then she makes a little storyboard in a pocket-sized Moleskine where she tries to write captions for each image. And finally she creates a draft inside Pencil's easy-to-use platform.
THE FACE OF KELLY GRAY sits on my Surface screen as we continue planning for the day-long ICT in Education Conference on Saturday, April 23, on the campus of LIT-Thurles. Kelly is a character developed by Becky O'Regan, an animation student studying on the Clonmel campus of the Limerick Institute of Technology (LIT).
