The Knight Digital Media Center's Web 2.0 Training for Journalists, February 22-26, 2010, provides participants with hands-on, newsroom-focused training on innovative publishing tools and technologies. Workshop fellows create data-driven map mash-ups, use Google publishing and data visualization tools, create SEO-smart blog posts, shoot, edit and post HD video, create publication widgets, and use Facebook and Twitter both for reporting and for driving traffic.

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 Dec 18, 2009 11:59 p.m.
