Citizen Journalism – Kigamboni

I had something up my sleeve for today’s class ( 17th July ) . Today was not just going to be about sitting behind laptops and doing class the normal way. I had the participants go out in the community and do a couple of interviews with the citizens of Kigamboni. Their task was to tell people about their training they were currently doing (Social Media Workshops) and then ask the people if this training is something they would attend.

The main of this exercise was to show them how to gather/capture content (pics and videos )  using their mobiles phones and then blogging about it at a later stage.  At first they were a bit hesitant not knowing how the community would respond but eventually mustered up the courage and went to the streets. Here is one of the blog post written by one of the participants  after interviewing people on the street.

After these interviews with the community they also managed to get participants whom Kigmaboni Community Centre will be training up in Social Media workshop.
