Latest Event Updates
January 16 2014 was the official date on which the Companies Registration Office of Ireland wrote the student enterprise – Interactive Arts into Existence. Defying many odds, Interactive Arts won many awards in 2014 all of which were based on an unfinished product with a great concept and aims to go on to change Irish education. To this date I am the first student entrepreneur to win at the student enterprise awards with an unfinished product, showing the massive potential Interactive Arts exhibits. I have received great response from teachers, parents and students alike. iRevise Geography, my businesses first product spent 31 straight days at the top of the textbooks category in the iBookstore and It has just gone on sale to schools in the new year. Allowing the 160,000 Junior Cert Geography Students to learn in a fun, effective and interactive way.
iRevise Geography is a completely interactive ibook which is the best revision resource you can use for Junior Cert Geography. Never feel bored with class again as iRevise Geography brings geography to life at your finger tips.

2014 has been a great year at Interactive Arts for many reasons, here’s a snapshot! In 2014 Interactive Arts was officially founded on the 16th of January, Since then Interactive Arts has achieved much but I look forward to 2015 as a year in which the system of education will successfully adopt the innovations brought forward by my business – Interactive Arts. On a more celebratory note let’s look back at the year 2014 by the numbers, some of which can be seen in the image above. I can’t wait what 2015 brings for myself and my business and I would love to extend a happy new year to my users, readers and followers around the world. Let the year bring happiness and joyful memories to all and growth, expansion and success to business.
Not every investment in life appreciates but with iRevise Geography you can be sure it will. With fantastic new content coming every month it just keeps getting better and better! This week I have made an addition to the iBook, Chapter 11: Economic Activities it is now live and free to update. I am particularly proud of this chapter and its one Ive been working on for months. I believe I have struck interactive gold with this One! The visuals of this chapter are simply awesome!
Now Imagine this was a printed textbook… All the hassle of getting the new edition of the book and having to fork out another €20+ to obtain the new content. This is called classroom fragmentation, a common problem in Second Level schools where students try to study from various editions of textbooks and can often mean confusion and frustration for Teachers & Students. This will not happen with iRevise Geography and Updates are always Free!
Last Week… I was extremely lucky to receive a ticket to the Web Summit in the RDS at the very last minute. The Event itself was inspirational, intriguing and completely amazing. I love technology so there was no better place on the Planet to spend the week than at the Web summit! I was really excited to be in attendance and I thoroughly enjoyed listening to the many success stories of tech on Centre Stage including Tony Fadell (Nest), Brad Smith (Intuit) and many other big timers!
Apple is very proud of its iOS Ecosystem and why not… Recent statistics show Apple has a direct link to 629,000 jobs in Europe and I’m just as proud to be part of that figure and It is a tribute to Steve Jobs also, without Apple this business like thousands of others wouldn’t exist either entirely or in a different form.
Apple has just launched its brand new iPad lineup featuring the New iPad Air 2 and the iPad Mini 3. But at the same time there has never been such a great time to introduce iPads into schools. Starting at a new low of €249 you can get an iPad Mini, but I would suggest schools considering the idea of adopting iPads, go for a Retina Display iPad Mini or iPad Air as I feel that the extra clarity on-screen makes learning and interacting with iRevise Geography and other content more fun and immersive. I believe the extra €60-or so makes a huge difference at for the iPad Mini with Retina Display. If you would prefer a bigger screen to work with the iPad Air works great.
