GWU - Team #THINKFWD 2013

Team #THINKFWD is a group of students enrolled at George Washington University's School of Media and Public Affairs that take the Multimedia Reporting to Inform and Engage Class taught by Frank Sesno, Roger Hommel and Mike DeVito. They produce videos, blogs and social media for Planet Forward as part of their semester, learning video, digital and engagement skills along the way. It's all about storytelling for these students, and they've found some interesting characters and innovations during their projects.

For more from team #THINKFWD, check out last semester's videos.
