Video message to President Barack Obama broadcast on RTE 2 FM
Students from the Adult Learning Centre recently filmed a video message to President Barack Obama prior to his re-election in the America.  The video message entitled ‘President Barack Obama – 55 second message’ was filmed as part of the Leargas Grundtvig European Learning Partnership Programme project which the centre is involved in with fellow partners from France, Germany, Greece, Spain and the United Kingdom.  The overall theme of the European project is ‘How to Educate Learners through Peer Mentoring’ (students supporting students) with Ireland focusing on ‘Peer Mentoring through Active Citizenship’.  This digital media project offers learners and tutors the opportunity to participate in a peer mentoring activity that raises awareness of the political world, both nationally and internationally.  The students’ message to President Obama was broadcast over the Irish airwaves on the RTE 2FM Breakfast Show with Louise McSharry.
