We joined our sister company Media Box at a VIP party in the G Hotel on Friday night. The reason for the party was two-fold
1. Celebrate five years of Media Box
2. Launch Digital Training Institute
Attending to launch our new venture were staff and students from Salerno Secondary School who are our first partners. TY students are studying our course Young Minds Online.
Salerno Principal Sr. Gerarda Lawler said, “We feel very lucky to have the opportunity to have our girls study this course. They love it, we love it and they are being taught invaluable skills in new media and technology, while becoming ambassadors for best practice online among their peers.”
Brian Fogarty, IT, Business and Economics teacher at Salero and author of the Leaving Certificate book Less Stress More Success in Economics says, “Young Minds Online is invaluable to us and to other schools across the country. Social media is here to stay so you need to embrace it and be at the cutting edge by informing and educating yourself and this is exactly what Joanne and Sophie have created with Young Minds Online.”
Mr. Fogarty made a video documenting the students’ participation in Young Minds Online. Watch it here.
