The Trend Watch assignment consists of three reports written throughout the semester on a chosen topic of study. I followed the trend of new media journalism and how it will effect the way people receive their news. I used Google Reader, Twitter, Google, PSFK, News Sites, and Bing to follow this trend.
The abilities assessed for this project were:
2.D.1 Identifies media interrelationships and associated concepts between new media and traditional systems:
4.1 Technology Literacy Rubric: Appropriately and effectively uses technology to accomplish assigned tasks.
The most interesting thing I found about new media journalism was how effective proponents of new media journalism used transcoding to connect people from old medias into the era of digital journalism.
