I Want Your Phones On During Class!

During the Spring semester, I asked my students in News Reporting to use their smartphones to report. Today at the Poynter Institute's Teachapalooza, I'm learning some basic and more advanced ways to use smartphones in gathering information for reporting.

Look out Fall semester students. You'll need to bring your smartphones to class every day and learn how to use them to create content and stories. That goes for PR and journalism students. Smartphones aren't just for budding journalists to use professionally.
