This is screencast video presentation is from a media development conference presentation.
This workshop with radio journalists in Western Kenya explored how to use smartphones to make stories with a community not just for a community.
Using entry-level Android operating smartphones journalists were guided through basic mobile reporting skills and worked towards their goal of transforming a village fish market at Dunga Beach into a multimedia exhibition space.
The Pop Up project challenged journalists to think beyond broadcast media and to find out what happens when storytelling and public spaces intersect. An emphasis was placed on photojournalism and using a mobile phone to produce materials for story formats that enable a journalist to literally tell a visual story such a narrated audio slide-show.
Lego Serious Play was used intensively at the start of the workshop to trigger interest in mobile reporting and to find out more about colleagues’ aspirations as journalists in their community.
