The KDMC at UC Berkeley's Web 2.0 Training for Journalists provides participants with hands-on, newsroom-focused training on innovative publishing tools and technologies.

This training takes participants through the progression of reporting news for multiple digital platforms, starting with quick text posts and moving through photos and video and finally ending with a full multimedia presentation. The workshop provides hands-on training using Twitter and Facebook for reporting and driving web traffic, creating data-driven map mashups, dynamically updating a blog for breaking news, publishing photo galleries and audio slideshows, producing videos and editing videos using Final Cut Pro. Participants will leave with new tools for reporting and with new insights on how to serve new and emerging audiences.

During five days of intense, hands-on instruction, the fellows selected for the Web 2.0 training will:

• Blog breaking news using Twitter
• Post photos in interactive news maps
• Produce and publish photo galleries and audio slideshows
• Create and edit videos with Final Cut Pro
• Incorporate user-generated content in breaking news stories
• Use Facebook and publication widgets for news distribution
• Learn technical specifics for optimizing breaking news rankings in Google

WHO SHOULD APPLY: Professional print, radio, broadcast and online journalists who want to develop Web 2.0 technology and techniques to support their publication`s Internet publishing effort.
