RETN Media Factory

Monica DiGiovanni

Get started telling your organization’s story online and on video! Learn strategies for reaching your audience, and explore digital media tools that elevate and amplify your story. We’ll look at great examples, explore new media tools, and have conversations about how to best reach your community. You will come away with ideas, inspiration, and a basic toolkit to get started in digital media, or take your work to the next level.

Bring your iPad, smartphone, or laptop to our smart classroom. We’ll also have some iPads for use during the session. While much of our training focuses on Mac/Apple, we’ll be talking about universal strategies and online resources that are cross-platform as well. (And if the above sentence is confusing, have no fear – we’ll explain it all!)
