Mobile Journalism in Cherbourg, Queensland

The project provides a group of young people from Cherbourg, a former Aboriginal mission town, with the skills and the technology, to create their own mobile user generated stories.

Using the iPhone 5, a few accessories and a training program, this project was run to teach the skills of mobile journalism to indigenous students in remote communities. It blows my mind that now with a smartphone and a 3G connection, students can shoot, edit and publish great looking stories all from the one device. That’s so cool.

Some great work being done by the Cherbourg Mojo team in Queensland. If you want to see what kinds of stories came out of it, go check out their YouTube channel.
