Students at a Philadelphia campus say they want to avoid becoming ‘the awkward onlooker’ and learn to disseminate cell phone photos responsibly. Immaculata University is the latest school to bring a cell phone photography course to campus. A new cell phone photography class at a suburban Philadelphia university focuses on both the quality of the images and the ethical responsibilities that come with taking and publishing them. Cell phone cameras — and associated scandals — have become so ubiquitous that it’s important for students to realize “the full gravity of what’s at their fingertips and the power they can have,” Immaculata University communications professor Sean Flannery said.
