Students in my Social Media Journalism class at VCU have reported for the website of WTVR CBS 6 and the politics blog of the Washington Post during this spring semester. Using iPads to produce multimedia news packages, the “iPadJournos” covered topics ranging from the presidential campaign, crime in Richmond to the increasingly popular microblogging platform Tumblr. “iPadJourno” Samra Khawaja was also selected as one of 12 student reporters nationwide for a presidential election reporting project by the Washington Post.
Please take a look at all of the students’ stories and read more about our course. You can follow the “iPadJournos” class on Twitter and Facebook as well as the individual student reporters. We are tweeting with the hashtag #ipadjournos.
