Durante o ONA, Alfred Hermida pegou no seu N95 e perguntou as professores presentes o que é que eles precisam de ensinar para formar novos jornalistas.
Robert Scoble, Rosental Alves – o orientador do workshop de Jornalismo Online a que assisti em Junho (sim, eu vou continuar a falar disto porque foi mesmo bom) – e outros deixam a sua opinião sobre o que é necessário que os estudantes de Jornalismo sejam e aprendam.
During ONA, Alfred Hermida took his N95 and asked around to the teachers present at the event about what they have to teach to grad journo students.
Robert Scoble, Rosental Alves – the professor at the Online Journalism workshop i attended last June (yes, i’ll keep on referring to it because it was really damn good)- and others leave their opinion about what journalism students need to learn and to be.
The advice for graduates was that they need journalism plus a new set of skills. The basics of journalism — curiosity, passion, accuracy, serving the public interest — were still important. But journalist students also need to learn about how the digital revolution has changed, and continues to change, the media.
This involves understanding how people are consuming media and how content flows online, as well as being aware of the importance of community and the conversation taking place online. Teaching journalism has become “journalism…plus” as Robert Scoble says below.
