Innovate Day Photo: A Picture is Worth a Thousand Words
Innovate Day was an excellent experience for my journalism student. The activity, held Friday, Sept. 21, at Houston’s Discovery Green, was led by multimedia journalist and Texas Southern University graduate student Kenneth Ware, Jr. Students were required to use social media as a reporting tool. The primary social network used was Twitter. They used the hashtag #TwitterNewsChat and posted 10 newsworthy tweets about their adventure at Discovery Green. Students were also required to take journalistic photos. The one featured in this post is of Anthony Bell as he stood under the Mist Tree and water drenched him from head to toe. More about Innovate Day at Discovery Green will be posted on social media corresponents.net this week.
