Photography is not a result of a “point and shoot” style. It is a communication which involves the eyes, heart and mind, according to a well-established photojournalist, Mr. Jimmy A. Domingo of De La Salle University.

Mr. Domingo explored the world of photography and shared his knowledge to the participants, as he discussed to them camera features and how to apply them in the right time and with the right objective. He also lectured on the different styles of taking pictures, elements, and timing to capture great images.

Research plays a vital role in gathering materials; be it paper or online writing. Thorough and intensive research is highly recommended.

The smart and good looking iSchools staff, Christian Placido Calma, shared his wit as he discussed online research.

The power of internet makes research work easier. Not everything in the net is factual, so the need to evaluate the resources is very important.

He stressed the responsibility of using the internet in conducting research. Plagiarism as part of his discussion has different forms, whether intentional or not. Proper citation for written and multimedia is encouraged to avoid such. He also introduced plagiarism checking software to the participants as a tool that will assist them in all their research work.

Wikipedia is discouraged to be cited for academic and scholarly purposes, it can only provide an overview of a certain topic.

Useful Tool

In almost every aspect of our life, planning is essential. We plan in order to produce good results and minimize mistakes.

The same goes with blog sites; planning is indeed valuable.

iSchools Project Manager, Ms. Antonette Torres, introduced the concept of site planning to the participants using the FreeMind tool – A free mind mapping software. FreeMind is a user friendly tool that helps the user organize and visualize the would-be outcome of their blog sites.

She gave a walkthrough of the software to the participants. Afterwards participants applied FreeMind in preparing their blog sites.

He shared that most people just scanned instead of read material from the internet because they are too busy and want to get the facts quickly. He suggested that the blog should be scannable for the reader to quickly find out what they searching in a short period of time. Moreover, he emphasized how blog writers must establish credibility.

To conclude, Mr. Torres emphasized that blog titles should be simple and should grab the readers’ attention.
