Finding the story and knowing how to tell it is the foundation for bringing news to the community.
In this 2.5 hour class, Joyce Pellino Crane, Multimedia News Director at WestfordCATNews, will instruct on the tools, techniques, and knowledge needed to report the news, and inform students about platforms for sharing their stories.
Students will explore the power and usefulness of Facebook and Twitter — as well as the pitfalls — and identify how the Internet has redefined the role of the journalist. Participants should bring a smart phone with camera to class, as well as a laptop, tablet or old-fashioned notebook and pen.
The class meets Jan. 26 at 6 p.m. at WestfordCAT, 487 Groton Road, Westford.
