Technology is a Beautiful Thing!
What are the responsibilities of journalists? Why is 'news' so important? These were the types of questions I asked 8th grade students at Mirror Lake Middle School, and to be honest, I had to think about it for a while.
The realm of journalism is changing constantly, and it's fantastic when reporters are able to utilize technology to their benefit and embrace it. However, with all these social media tools like facebook, twitter, blogs, and websites and top stories moving so quickly the importance of getting the facts straight and not sensationalizing the story is SO important.
I had a such a great time meeting our possible 'future' journalists, and getting to share what our station does on a daily basis!
What a great time we're in when we're able to record and even face time/ skype with one another all from a phone that's the same size of a deck of cards!
