You might not of thought about using your mobile phone for radio, but theres loads of uses for your phone.

 

You might not of thought about using your mobile phone for radio, but these days lots of people have smartphones. Your station may not have any recording equiptment or maybe your out and about and need to record something quickly.

The Mobile Media Toolkit provides how-to guides, mobile tools, and case studies on how mobile phones can (and are) being used for reporting and news broadcasting.

The Mobile Media Toolkit is designed to help journalists, citizen reporters, news outlets, and media development organizations find, evaluate, and effectively deploy the right tools for reporting and sharing content on and to mobile devices.

Some examples from the Toolkit include:

  • How to create, edit, and share quality audio and video reports from a mobile phone. This detailed how-to guide is a great resource for journalists and citizen reporters (tip: use your car as a recording studio!).

 

  • Real-world applications of the use of mobile phones in journalism, such as this case study on how radio stations can adopt mobile technology to share stories and engage listeners.
