I was honored recently to be asked by Wilkes University sophomore Kirstin Cook to teach a session at a day-long workshop for high school journalism students. Honored and a little confused since I am in Phoenix and WilkesU is in Pennsylvania. But it was simple. I put together a Google docs presentation and we hooked up via Skype. The Skype share screen tool worked wonders. Kristin was a great assistant, in the room with the students, and I received a round of applause when it was over.
It was fun to create a presentation for teenagers who are interested in journalism, but most likely only understand social media as a personal tool.
Feel free to share: Wilkes University Tom Bigler Journalism Conference.
Applause is always welcome.
