Innovative Storytelling

Students will learn from communication professionals how new technology can be used to enhance storytelling and reporting. For example, students will practice using simple game design coding to develop an interactive story. Participants will also use 360-degree cameras for a reporting  project, and explore how drones can be used in storytelling.  Licensed drone pilots will explain to students rules and regulations for using drones and discuss ethical concerns about their use.
