Post primary teachers bring learning to life as they create educational multimedia resources in collaboration with their students

Presented by: Dr Yvonne Crotty, Leone Clarke & Catriona O Brien

In this session, teachers from post-primary will show how they use an educational entrepreneurial approach in the creation of multimedia resources to enhance educational practice and make IT matter. The Educational Entrepreneurial approach involves the design and creation of a multimedia artifact (for example, video, online educational resources or other educational materials that improves and enhances learning) and documenting the research as it unfolds. The output of the entrepreneurial approach demonstrates impact on the practitioner-researcher(s) and the wider social enterprise. The presentations were competed as part of the Masters in Education and Training Management (eLearning) programme – a two-year, part-time programme at Dublin City University (DCU).
