Welcome to the Documenting Social Injustice blog. This site is dedicated to providing you with resources and tools you will use in this class. Tutorials on how to create blogs, video media and podcasts can be found in the above pages. Please keep an eye out for new resources and tutorials and let us know if there is something you would like us to add.
The column at right features links to websites that deal with topics we will discuss in class as well as to student blogs, fundraising resources, guest speaker's web sites and the DOCSOC Facebook and Twitter sites.
In this class you will learn how to create media in partnership with advocacy groups and classmates to help mobilize people to create change.
This class is a boot camp for the media activist. We look at documentaries, media and art-work, present web sites, trailers, share media activist techniques and learn how to use social media to get our messages out to a global audience.
Students create compelling stories with their writings, photographs, video interviews, and observational recordings, supported with well researched data, powerful music, and spoken word presentations.
Students create blogs with their class writings, photo essays and media projects and share these through different forms of new media and social networking techniques.
As we communicate on our blogs, and share media projects on Facebook, Twitter, and Youtube, we invite you to comment, share your insights and suggest ways that we can create more effective activist media.
