This short presentation outlines the essence of major creative tasks assigned to the Media Writing module in the Limerick School of Art & Design for the fall semester of 2013. This is a short presentation to alert creative multimedia students in the Media Writing module in the Limerick School of Art & Design during the winter semester of 2013.

For the record, I blog at www.insideview.ie, talk at audioboo.fm/topgold and share videos at youtube.com/topgold including several supporting Media Writing that I made with Camtasia Studio.
We support this lecture with reflective audio journaling.
We want highly creative work spawning onto 54” screens throughout the LIT campuses.

The topic sentence should suggest a narrative of time and place will follow.
The media text might be an image on Tumblr.
The annotated reference can be from a book, from a Kindle clipping, from a snippet of music—any form of media text.
You may collaborate on this task.
You will find people using clever tech by using Twitter lists.

Syndication is a gift.
Collaboration through reflective social audio yields results.
Share the moment through your activity stream.

There is great value in listening to people who craft interesting narratives. Those narratives can often be reimagined for great effect.

I’m very findable. I blog and talk about education, technology and being a dad to a very creative couple of kids. The Google Document at http://bit.ly/mw-document01 accompanied this presentation. You can find artefacts of related student work by searching for #LSADmedia.
