How we use new technology
in the classroom

A hands-on approach to new technology

Drake School of Journalism and Mass Communication students have a chance to get hands-on with new technology in two early classes – their Multimedia Lab and Digital Media Strategies. Professor Chris Snider introduces students to tech including 360 cameras, Snapchat Spectacles and drones,¬†and then students create storytelling projects with those tools. This page includes examples of projects create by students in Snider’s class and beyond.
