Things that bring us joy

This movie is a combination of how all four of us found joy in completely different ways during lockdown.
We explored how technology was intertwined with our interests, self growth and friendships through this pandemic!
We also showed that the internet helped us be creative in ways we never expected!

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.

Let me entertain you!

The “App-pocalypse

A video showing how much more difficult life today would be without the internet. For example, using a carrier pigeon instead of twitter, or using a camcorder to record a video, but then having nowhere to upload it to

Back to the Past

Teens realise they can survive without internet.

A group of people walking down a pathway and taking pictures. One girl tries to post a picture of the group and it doesn’t upload and they realise they have no internet. They go out of their minds because they’re not used to the lifestyle and start having mental breakdowns because all of the things they are used to get wiped away. A phone manages to ring in the distance. They were surprised as it was the only phone that still has internet, so they crowd around it. They drop it and walk away, realising they can live without the internet after all.

Where’s The Wifi Gone ?

Where’s our Wifi Gone I think We lost It


When you watch our video, we want you to stop. To take a minute out of your day and listen to a message that needs to be heard. While watching this video we want to immerse you into a world of opportunities and prospects. We want to captivate your imaginations and show you the world that awaits you, when you choose to explore it.
We wanted to take a different slant on this competition and try a new and fresh approach to conveying this powerful message.
The internet has given us many amazing things to be grateful for, but sometimes we need to take a step back and appreciate the incredible world around us.

Granny WiFi Drama!

What happens when the elderly finally embrace the internet and for it to suddenly fail!

No Bars!

This video show teenagers who are accustomed to using the internet daily. This video shows what our lives would be like without the internet. Just imagine – no social media, no Google, no Google translate or Safari! When you think you can use YouTube, think again, because, that also needs internet. Imagine having to talk to people, getting to know your neighbours, if you’re really stuck. So life without internet would be very different maybe even better in some ways.
