Bangladesh: Use of mobile devices

September 2017

Using social media postings and video from BBG services and elsewhere, Bangladeshi attendees practiced shooting and editing video on mobile phones. They used inexpensive but powerful Apps to enhance images, edit video and post content to social media.

The training was held Sept. 27-28, 2017 at the Edward M. Kennedy Center in Dhaka, Bangladesh.

Thirty print, radio, and television journalists from across Bangladesh trained on using mobile devices to produce media reports.

Journalists received tips from the trainers about best methods of shooting and sequencing when taking videos, ways to tell a story with just one picture, and a checklist used when conducting interviews.
