In order to properly prepare our students for the multimedia journalism world, we must be able to do it all. Yet making a good video seems to be a hurdle many of us […]

Discovery Education Network a learning management system to consider

The sea change has happened.  I don’t mean Global Warming, but rather interactive, on-line education and learning, especially in journalism and newspaper production classes. In a Discovery Education professional development seminar Aug. 22 for English Language Arts teachers of the Boise School District (BSD) in Idaho, it was never more clear. Marita Diffenbaugh, ex-fifth grade teacher […]

The Newseum in Washington, D.C., is launching a Civil Rights module Friday (8/30/13), and many JEA members have been emailed for beta testing. What’s more important, however, is the site is fabulous for journalism teachers and students. It offers video modules and lesson plans on many topics that aren’t part of the beta testing, such […]

Photography, videography skills a must for new journalists, especially now

I know in my own backyard, The Idaho Statesman has reported several rounds of layoffs in the past few years due to the encroachment of digital on print subscriptions and advertising, and to a different economy.  However, most of the cuts have been across-the-board. In a news story published May 30, the Chicago Sun-Times announced […]

I am one of those advisers who is a traditional print journalist.  Adding video to my program’s on-line news site has been slow and painful.

Glogster might be an alternative story design for news sites

| March 29, 2013 | 0 Comments

Here’s the funny thing:  GlogsterEDU has a blog!  It also says, “Why Blog when you can Glog?”  That’s about the only contradiction I see, however, in this teacher/student educational community.

Our broadcast and video production classes made the switch to High Definition video (HD) successfully this year, but it has come with a learning curve.
