Staying Connected

This video shows how during lockdown, the internet has allowed Down Syndrome Cork’s Field of Dreams to continue to engage with its students through using Zoom.

We have a range of programmes including Work Skills and Literacy & Technology. We were able to continue classes with our students 1, 2 and even 3 days a week. These classes were particularly important as many of our adults faced a reduction in other services, many lost employment and many missed out on much needed interaction with their friends as they had to stay safe at home. At first we were unsure how it would go. In the beginning it was new for all of us. Thankfully, with the commitment of our students (and their parents) it exceeded our expectations. Our students quickly became experts!

Being able to have classes with our students online was fantastic. As you can see in the video we all learned a lot, we all had fun and most importantly, we stayed connected.

SPIRAL – a film by Muireann Ní Loingsigh

I wrote this poem, if you can even call it a poem, thinking of how we came together as humans last year in spite of the struggle of the pandemic. The whole world started to acknowledge it’s problems, and fight for them. It was terrifying, yet beautiful and it is something that will stick with me for the rest of my life.

The Power of Podcasting-Connecting the world 🌍

Without a shadow of a doubt, the internet has helped me get through by giving me a space to create, a place to explore and space to share.

In my entry I describe and show how, through creating my podcast and seeing the amazing response it has recieved over the past year from creating “positivity posters” from delighted listeners to selling out Merchandise, the overwhelming amount of support for the show has helped me get thought this past year as it reminded me, even during national lockdowns and global pandemics – Theres always a silver lining to be found.
