Google Hangout with the students of @ACJIndia on Mojo

Last year I watched with interest as a project from ACJIndia (Asian College of Journalism) in collaboration with other journalism Universities in the UK and US created a “Pop Up” Newsroom where the students used a diverse range of multimedia tools and storytelling techniques to share stories that explored topics in their communities.

The newsroom effectively migrated across the globe as it followed daylight hours. I thought the idea was brilliant and I had a number of conversations with Priya Rajsekar, one of the course leads on the course at AJC. So when Priya approached me a few weeks ago to know would I be willing to do a Google Hangout with the students in advance of this years Pop Up newsroom project – I couldn’t possibly say no.

So here it is in all its gory details!

Here are some of the references I made during the session

    Hi Glen

    You good?

    I think a link to the actually class is missing from this blog piece. Could be wrong though…has been known🙂.

    Anything on the VJ grapevine in terms of your courses or anything else I should take an interest in?

    I’m currently working with an activist group to enable them to keep there stake holders better informed through their field workers.

    Cheers.
