Why my six-year-olds blog (and why your students should, too) - 4 views

  •  
    "The first blog entries posted by my grade one students are rarely readable. Like pre-writers everywhere, my students type random letters, their name, or text they can see on the walls of the room around them. Despite the fact that they cannot yet write anything that is readable to the general public, I have them post because I want them to begin to define themselves as writers.

Cut and Paste Reportage: The Rise of "Whatever Journalism" | text2cloud - 64 views

  •  
    What is plagiarism? A case study of a news story that keeps growing as the headlines change--racism, whites only screening, outrage--even though each story is simply a rewriting of a summary of a letter to the editor. The problem, ultimately, isn't the technology; it's the generation of readers and writers who prefer outrage to curiosity.

Blog, Tweet, Design: Student Journalists Go Far Beyond Writing | MindShift - 48 views

  •  
    Article discussing shift in journalism courses (college level) and student expectations. Similar k-12?
  •  
    It's like there are two types of people- those who are online and those who are not? I know that's glib and endless permutations exist but It's such an interesting chasm for in my mind I assume the future generations will all be on the same page with tech but then probably technology will always be moving on leaving a similar gap between users of the older tools compared with users of the newer? It's the disruptive nature of these tools that have lead to the need to focus on the technology rather than the written content. Journos need to curate not write content. The two worlds are overlapping but not really aligning.

What Is a Book? The Definition Continues to Blur: Tech News and Analysis « - 45 views

  •  
    "It used to be so easy to define what a book was: a collection of printed pages bound inside a cover (hard or soft) that you could place on a shelf in your library, or in a store. Now, there are e-books, and blogs that turn into books, and long pieces of journalism that are somewhere between magazine articles and short books"
