I’ve been lucky enough to speak at the American Society of News Editors Reynolds Journalism Institute High School Journalism Institute. It’s an annual training that brings high school journalism instructors from around the country to Columbia, Mo. I was asked to speak about using mobile tools.

I put together a short presentation on why mobile tools are being adopted, what’s in a mobile kit (this shows three different examples: the kit used by Irish national broadcaster RTE’, my personal kit and the kit that our students use at Mizzou), additional uses beyond videography and workarounds for common problems with mobile media production.
