How do media work and how are they organised? And there is some hands-on experience too: learn how to create some audio and video content yourself!</p> <p><strong></strong></p> <p><strong>Learning outcomes</strong></p> <p>At the end of the course, you will have:</p> <ul> <li>excellent understanding of how NGOs can best use media and collaborate with local media in the interests of development</li> <li>understanding of the characteristics of print, broadcast, online and social media and their relative strengths and weaknesses</li> <li>an overview of theoretical models underpinning the design and use of media formats to inform and educate specific target groups</li> <li>working knowledge of the media content producer’s toolkit</li> <li>hands-on practical experience of devising and making a short multimedia story</li> </ul> <p><strong>Who`s it for</strong></p> <p>Staff working in or for development-oriented Non Governmental Organisations/Civil Society Organisations. Applicants are expected to have at least three years experience of working for an NGO operating in or for the developing world.</p> <p><strong>Course outline</strong></p> <p>The course will address a variety of questions. How can NGO's reach a wider and more diverse target audience? What possibilities do you have with media to reinforce the message you are trying to put across? What do you need to know about the way the media world works, and how can you encourage and ensure effective collaboration between media and development NGO’s?</p> <p>It gives an understanding of the strengths of the different available media platforms, sufficient to be able to advise in-country on their use. It provides an overview of the theoretical models and formats in mainstream media to assess media opportunities. It lays the foundation for effective collaboration with media professionals or the independent use of media.</p> <p><strong>Methodology</strong></p> <p>The course will place an emphasis on combining theory with practice through individual, group and plenary activities, presentations, discussions, role plays, exercises, content analysis and mini-assignments.</p> <p>Since there’s no better way to learn than to try it yourself, so we’ll be getting you to work with a camera to script and make your own stories, using text, photos and video.</p> <ul> <li>See more at: <a href="http://www.rntc.nl/mediafordevelopment" target="_blank" rel="nofollow">http://www.rntc.nl/mediafordevelopment</a></li> </ul> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-long-text-3"> <div class="field-label">Registration Information:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p><a href="http://www.rntc.nl/mediafordevelopment" target="_blank" rel="nofollow">Click here more information and to apply.</a></p> </div> </div> </div> http://www.comminit.com/global/content/using-media-development-may-11-22-2015-rntc-netherlands#comments Netherlands Western Europe Events Calendar Training Digital Phone/Mobile Development Assistance Print by Media Environment Training, Conferences, Meetings Global Tue, 03 Feb 2015 21:18:58 +0000 Deanna.Brotherston 9353366 at http://www.comminit.com Vojo Brazil: Amplifying Quilombola Voices through Mobile Phones http://www.comminit.com/global/content/vojo-brazil-amplifying-quilombola-voices-through-mobile-phones <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img src="http://www.comminit.com/global/files/imagecache/thumbnail/mit_brazil.jpg" alt="" title="" width="100" height="75" class="imagecache imagecache-thumbnail imagecache-default imagecache-thumbnail_default"/> </div> </div> </div> <p>In October 2013, a training in Salvador, Brazil, introducing a multimedia technology called Vojo, was presented to 20 youth in a quilombo community (a settlement of people originally of African origin), Ilha de Maré, which has no internet access. The training introduced a means of posting content in the internet with inexpensive mobile phones that have no internet connectivity. The workshop was organised by the Mídia Étnica Institute, in a partnership with the MIT (Massachusetts Institute of Technology) Center for Civic Media.&nbsp;</p> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-long-text-1"> <div class="field-label">Communication Strategies:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>According to the Vojo website: Vojo is designed for people to post stories from inexpensive mobile phones via voice calls, SMS (text messaging) , and MMS (multimedia messaging service). It also makes it possible to set up and customise a group where people can post content to the internet from their phones. The aim of introducing this technology in the Ilha de Maré community was to empower young "quilombolas" and help them identify and denounce the violence they witness in their communities. Vojo enables them to reach bloggers and media outlets outside Ilha de Maré.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>The training included a video with previous similar activities, and trainers led discussion on the future of the Vojo Brazil project. This pilot project is directed to reach communities in remote rural areas, indigenous groups, landless workers, and other disenfranchised groups alienated from the information society.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>According to Vojo creators and trainers, "Vojo enables everyone to create and update a blog even whether she/he does not have computer or internet access. The tool allows the user to post audio stories from mobile phones and even public telephones. It is also possible to post photos and video from cell phones. The idea is to help the youth to become tech-savvy and connect their communities to a social network that can increase the awareness to their social, cultural and political demands in the Brazilian media ecosystem."</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>A<a href="/redirect.cgi?r=https://www.facebook.com/vojobrasil" target="_blank" rel="nofollow"> Facebook page</a> was developed on the workshop, showing an example of a message from the community to the Brazilian government. &nbsp;According to one of the project coordinators: "In addition to Vojo, they [the youth] had talks on sexually transmitted diseases, black identity, media democratization and basic journalism.
