This workshop was very valuable to me, because in my job as a photojournalist I am given more responsibilities every day to tell a story through video, audio, social media for the web as well as in print. So learning these tools, like flash, graphics, maps, final cut pro will be applied immediately to what I do every day. It also gave me a foundation for a better process to think about these multimedia components when I am planning a story and what would be best to disseminate the information.
