My latest column on PBS Mediashift looks at how to teach multimedia journalism in the classroom.
This means that journalists need to think on different levels as they conceive of a story and its treatment. It involves taking a multifaceted approach to a story and working out how best to tell it with the media available. The attraction for journalists is the ability to tell a story in multiple ways, making information accessible in ways that go beyond the standard news article in print.
Among the online resources I recommend is the tutorial by Jane Stevens on multimedia story-telling.
