Filmstrips Project

Teachers who are nostaligia lovers will be thrilled to hear that Seomra Ranga is publishing filmstrips from old projectors from over 30 years ago. Damien Quinn, the webmaster of Seomra Ranga announced this week that after two years, he has now collated over 500 spools of film and is busy copying each side into PowerPoint format. He is now sharing these slides using SlideShare with teachers all over the world. Not only will Quinn be doing this in his own time, all this work will be available for free. Quinn, through this project, has single-handedly preserved a part of the history of the Irish Education system. This sort of selfless work often goes unrecognised in the public domain so I hope that it will be seen and celebrated in the manner it deserves.

  1. This is really something to look forward too.  Imagine being able to watched something back from the days for free.  Quinn did really a great job on this one, considering he is not even getting paid by doing this.  This compilation will surely have a great impact in history and education.
