Feb 17-20 2009 Technology Training
North Gate Hall, UC Berkeley
The Knight Digital Media Center's Technology Training, February 17-20, 2009 provides hands-on, newsroom-focused training on technologies driving innovation in reporting. Workshop fellows create database-driven map mash-ups, use of GPS for hyperlocal news, create and post to blogs, create audio, video and .pdf podcasts, and create identities and participate in social networking sites.
A major component of the intense 12-hour daily schedule is engaging in discussions lead by national leaders in journalism, technology, business, and newsroom innovation. Participants leave with new tools for reporting and with new insights on how to serve new and emerging audiences.
Application deadline was Oct 17, 2008 11:59 p.m.
