Literacy Week
Article Uploaded : 15/01/2020 22:20:44 by Midleton College

Today, as part of Literacy week, we had a visit from Social Affairs Correspondent with the Irish Examiner, Noel Baker. Noel gave a fascinating one hour talk to a selection of students from all years who have an interest in Journalism. This was a wide-ranging lecture giving a behind- the- scenes look at the work done in the Irish Examiner newsroom. He also discussed how the physical paper and online version differ, the importance of responsible journalism, the pitfalls of unreliable online news sources, broadcasting vs print media and recommended pathways to a career in journalism. The talk was very well received by all those who attended.
