Event Details

Overview

PBS SoCaL and KVCR, your local public broadcasting stations, are hosting an afternoon of networking, workshops and discussion groups to brainstorm new ways of providing political coverage to Southern California during the 2012 election year.  

Citizen journalists, bloggers, members of the media, and student journalists are invited to participate and help “raise the barn,” developing the online election coverage for public media in Southern California. This groundbreaking event will utilize social media, live streaming, and “crowdsourced” discussions allowing the people of Southern California to shape the way that PBS SoCaL and KVCR will provide election coverage in 2012.

Discussion topics will focus on the role of technology in political coverage, including the impact of the digital divide, how newsrooms use new media and user generated content in election coverage, and ways to raise your voice to media leaders.

This event is open to the public. The main program will be available as a live stream and questions and comments will be accepted from the web.  Teachers are encouraged to utilize the stream in the classroom and facilitate discussion with students. Follow along on Twitter before and after the event with #SoCal2012.
