And I’m thrilled to be able to talk about social media to a group of high school teachers who are taking on the task of teaching budding journalists.
I know that schools can be nervous about social media and some school districts don’t have the resources to jump into journalism in the same way they may cover other subjects and activities, but this group of 35+ teachers chose to spend a chunk of their summer in balmy Arizona learning about new tools and tactics from faculty and staff at the Cronkite School of Journalism at Arizona State University.
More power to them. I’m posting this so they can easily carry these tools home with them.
This presentation was part of that session given to high school journalism teachers, part of the ASNE Reynolds Fellowship in Phoenix in the summer 2012.
Here’s the Social Media for Journalists handout for this class.
And below are some more resources. These are the links that appear on the final slide of the presentation.
