Special Series: Back to J-School 2013 | Mediashift | PBS | Media Techniques | Scoop.it
This month, throngs of fresh-eyed students are filing back onto campus (or logging in online), attempting to become journalists at a time when the very definition of a journalist is in constant flux.
Laura Păuleţ's insight:

"Those who teach tomorrow’s journalists have a monumental task ahead of them: Not only do they have to instruct and mentor these students, they have to do so as the media landscape heaves and buckles beneath all of them. This can make for a wild ride for students, teachers and schools alike. But with the challenges comes great opportunity — for innovation, for creativity and for experimentation."

Early results from the Sun's paywall are in, after 10 days they only lost 36% of their market share, far less than the 66% experienced by Murdoch's other London daily, the Times of London. It'll be interesting to see what happens when their opt-out £1 trial period ends. Stay tuned.....

Laura Păuleţ's insight:

„The information revolution seemed to hit another high gear last week in Boston, leaving authorities on information technology pondering the ramifications. “The experience of people being stuck in their homes was very different because of social media. To some extent people felt like ‘we’re doing this together, and it’s a sensible thing,’ ” said Judith Donath, a faculty fellow at the Berkman Center."

Algorithms have the power to change the course of history

German newspapers are in a dilemma. Inspired by a sense of public duty and democratic sensibilities, they act like public funded media bodies with important journalism and campaigns.

Know your audience: How the print generations consume media in the digital age

Know your audience: How the print generations consume media in the digital age | Media Techniques | Scoop.it
This is part one of a two-part series looking at the media habits of modern consumers, according to their age. Here we profile people aged 35 and over - next time we'll investigate the younger generation of "Millenials".
Laura Păuleţ's insight:

"It's easy to get carried away focusing on the trend-setting, digital-savvy younger generation. But for most publishers, the audience that matters is one that lived their formative years before the digital transition really began, one that is for the most part still waiting to be converted to digital media consumption."

Do journalism schools really need to be teaching hospitals?

Do journalism schools really need to be teaching hospitals? | Media Techniques | Scoop.it
The model is gaining ground in many journalism schools, but two professors argue won't help future journalists — or the industry they're entering — adapt to change.
Laura Păuleţ's insight:

"The metaphor implies that journalism is a settled profession with clear boundaries that needs only to be practiced more rigorously, instead of a field with its most fundamental premises unraveling. Rather than creating conditions for students to help re-think journalistic practices, the teaching hospital model reinforces the conviction that content delivery is the primary purpose of journalism. Put simply, it makes it hard for students to think differently."
