Santiago de Compostela
May 3rd – 8th 2013

CIRCOM , in conjunction with RTE Ireland, provided a workshop for journalists that gave them an opportunity to learn the professional skills and techniques when using a mobile phone. Journalists needed to provide material that is useful for transmission, not just on TV, but also for radio and on-line services. 

The main objectives of the course were:

  • To give participants training to a level where they are competent in the use of smart phones for filming, recording audio, file transfer and live transmissions.
  • To give participants experience in using a laptop and/or ipad editing software.  
  • To learn how to develop story ideas within the limitations of an iphone.
  • To get to know the hardware, software and apps that are available to them.
  • To understand the workflow in order to avoid mistakes.
  • To give participant’s the necessary skills and confidence to work with a smart phone when appropriate.

The trainers were: Glen Mulcahy from RTE Ireland, John Inge Johansen from NRK Norway, Darko Flajpan from HRT Croatia and Karol Cioma, training project manager for Circom Regional

Following the MoJo workshop in Santiago de Compostela, we have received reports that trainees in Hungary, Czech Republic and Spain have been using mobile phones as a means of newsgathering and have all been successful in having their reports broadcast.
