ICT in Education Conference

On Saturday we were invited to ICT in Education Conference in LIT, Thurles Campus to showcase what we do. The theme of the conference was Global Voices. It was showing how teachers and students use technology in the classroom.

ICTEduWe caught up with Ciaran Cannon, Minister of State for Training and Skills, after his opening address and asked him a couple of questions. Have a listen to what he tells RTY about his work, his day, education in the digital era and the important issue of education for girls especially MDG No 2.
We would like to thank Conor Galvin, UCD and Pamela O’Brien, LIT Thurles for inviting us and organising the event.

Junior Spiders!

This Tuesday, Radio TY was invited to Google HQ to attend the Eircom Junior Spider Awards. We were shortlisted for 2 awards - 'Best Project' and 'Best Concept' in the Tera Spiders category for Transition Year, 5th and 6th year students.

Melissa, Lauren, Eilís, Aoife, Aisling and Ciara attended alongside Mrs L on the day to represent Radio TY, and all enjoyed a day of entertainment and treats before the awards ceremony.
When it was announced that Radio TY had won the award for 'Best Concept', everyone was absolutely delighted, and a little shocked!!
We are so delighted to have won such a fantastic award, and thanks to everyone who is involved with and supports Radio TY!

Two of the Radio TY team had also been shortlisted for their own individual TY blogs - Eilís and Lauren. Well done girls.

We were so excited to be at Google HQ that we forgot to conduct any interviews! One of the team, Claire, had to miss the event because she was competing in a Walk Race at Santry but here is an interview she did with the girls who attended Google on Tuesday:
