Students make mobile phone news
|School children have been using their mobile phones and iPods to make the news as part of a BBC project to engage students with journalism. |
A class of 12 and 13-year-olds from Lilian Baylis Technology School in Lambeth, London transformed their personal gadgets into news-gathering device.
Year eight students snapped photographs using their mobile phones and combined them with radio reports, which they recorded using an iPod or a traditional microphone.
The result was a series of multi-media news reports available to download from the internet.
