Since a lot of this technology is new, even to educators, we developed a three-day hands on training course entitled “Teaching the Teachers” with the aim of bridging the curriculum gap by training educators in basic journalism skills including ethics, conducting interviews, multimedia editing, basic photo and video composition, and the opportunity to create their own photo and video package so the teachers learn by doing. It also gives a chance for educators to introduce new and exciting techniques into their classrooms.
The Mojo Kit Academic’s ultimate aim is to transform your tablet into a full high-definition, broadcast quality, mobile multimedia studio.
