Since joining The Poynter Institute in 2007, Ellyn Angelotti has helped Poynter explore the journalistic values and the legal challenges related to new technologies, especially social media. She also has helped create and develop PoynterÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢s use of interactive teaching tools like online chats and podcasts.
Angelotti regularly teaches journalists how to effectively use interactive tools as storytelling vehicles, and how using these tools changes the media landscape. In the summer of 2009 she traveled to South Africa to teach and research mobile storytelling. As a judge for national multimedia journalism contests, including the National Press Photographers Association Awards and E.W. Scripps National Journalism Awards, she has studied and taught about best practices in innovative storytelling.
Her current work is focused on the intersection of journalism, technology and the law. She is a recent graduate of Stetson University College of Law where she was awarded the Judge Raphael Steinhardt Award for character, leadership and service to the community.
