Every semester I like to watch trends in digital media for an assignment I construct for the last month of class. I call it my Future of Journalism assignment, and it’s intended to introduce some new tool, trend or idea to the regular curriculum.


I think it’ll be interesting to see how trends like Meerkat and Periscope develop, and what role they play in everyday discourse. I haven’t tried broadcasting with either myself, although I’ve watched videos using the Periscope app. At this point, I don’t think I have anything interesting to broadcast. That whole article is worth a read though.
