We will spend the next 10 weeks learning and practicing new skills, such as blogging, social media, digital photography, audio reporting, video reporting and creating infographics like the one on the right. (Click it to see it full-size.)

Some of the tools we’ll use include:

  • WordPress
  • Twitter
  • Facebook Groups
  • Digital cameras
  • Flickr
  • Digital video cams
  • iMovie and Windows Movie Maker
  • Smartphones
  • Audio recorders
  • Online infographic software

Most of our work will be hands-on and in-class, so you’ll get lots of practice and attention. By the end of the term, you’ll be ready to function like a “backpack journalist.”

The most important requirement is simple: Have fun!
