Presented by: Youth Media Team
If you’ve wondered what it is that the Youth Media Team do, then this might be the workshop for you. In this session you can become a member of the team and learn the processes involved. The team will take you through their workflow from preparation through to the actual interview leading to the blog post which proves that the job is done!
The Youth Media Team (YMT) is a group of teenagers who attend and report on various events and conferences. They first came together in May 2013 to add a young student voice to the annual ICT in Education conference. Since then, collectively and individually, the ‘red shirts’ have brought their unique blend of interviewing, blogging and tweeting to a number of events up and down the country. The team is primarily made up of students from schools in Thurles, Nenagh and Templemore, with mentors Pam O’Brien and Bernie Goldbach from LIT, and Dr. Conor Galvin from UCD, guiding them through the process. Since its inception membership of the team has changed but many of the original members are still involved.
