As technology evolves, mobile reporting—the use of a mobile phone to create stories about news, events, and issues — is becoming more widespread.

- Tips for developing stories
- Best practices for mobile phone production —tips for taking photos, shooting videos, and recording interviews on mobile phones
- Ideas for how to share your stories
This workshop will involve a brief lecture, as well as examples from a citizen journalist in Cambridge Community Television’s NeighborMedia Program (www.neighbormedia.org) using mobile reporting to cover subjects and issues in his or her neighborhood. The ideal workshop size is 15-20 participants.
