Students participate in a series of six day long (8 hours/day, lunch will be provided) boot camps along with weekly assignments in weeks prior to the 2014 SXSW Interactive Festival. Those that complete the boot camp will qualify for SXSW Film & Interactive Gold badges and use portable media devices (iPods, smart phones, digital cameras and tablets) to document and post SXSW activities/perspectives on social media channels in real time. During the workshop series, students will utilize Google Drive and Groups to collaborate and E4 Youth www.e4youth.org to post blog updates. Then, students will use their newly acquired skills and knowledge to access tools such as Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Pinterest as they share media created during the SXSW Interactive and Film Festival.
