There was lots of food and hot chocolate and marshmallows and sweets and things like that. It was a great morning. Everybody had great fun and they all got lots of food.

TY podcasts

I just received these podcasts from Peter of Create School who came to St Wolstan's last week along with Chris and gave each TY class a podcasting workshops.
I had to make them into little movies because Blogger doesn't facilitate sound files. All images from Scoilnet ImageBank and free to use under Creative commons.

And here is Orlaigh's group podcast - Impressions of Ireland

Podcasting workshop - Ailbhe's report

Podcasting- such a good day!
On Friday we had a brilliant day. Two men called Chris and Steven came in to do a podcasting workshop with us. I have to say that it was brilliant and I really think that it should be done every year with TY's from now on. It is really worth it in my opinion. Firstly they spoke with us about how one can do a podcast. If you go into iTunes U it is really easy to do podcasting. The word podcast is an amalgamation of the words broadcast and ipod because a podcast is basically a broadcast for an ipod.
