About this Unit
Digital technologies have revolutionised news delivery. Journalists in every area of the profession now require video, audio, online and print skills to work across multiple platforms and contexts. This unit introduces students to multiplatform digital journalism and the ways in which multiple media can be used to tell stories for a range of contexts.Students develop their own blog site, that is populated using digital devices for working with video, audio and text to engage with a range of social media storytelling modes to extend stories across multiple media contexts. Based on an understanding of ethical and informed journalism practices, students are encouraged to develop their own voice as an independent thinker and writer into the public domain of online publishing.
