This workshop was incredibly valuable - I now have a solid foundation for new kinds of Web and multimedia journalism and an idea of where I want to go from here and what I want to take back to my news organization. I want to go through all of my notes and start coming up with ideas to better my news organization and the news/digital experience for other reporters; I want to train others in all the techniques I have learned; and I also want to expand on my own. I came into this workshop as a social media junkie and curious person and I'm leaving this workshop with a sturdy understanding of what I want to do, where I want to go from here and what I need to do in order to continue and further my own growth as a digital journalist.
