Technological Impact

Filed under: Uncategorized — jgualotuna @ 12:03 am

Technology is advancing everyday and making us adapt to these new changes. It seems as if everyday some new product is coming out and sharing to the world how much better this product is then the last product that just came out months or days ago.

Technology is changing journalism because it is no longer needed to get news through a newspaper. We can find a posting online and be just as informed. Currently with the Winter Olympics going on we as fans can follow our favorite athlete or athletes.

We can log on to out social networking site (Facebook , MySpace, etc.) and find out what our athlete are doing or where they will be competing. This allows fans to learn more about their favorite athlete’s and their daily activities. This also allows for athletes to become known and recognized by more people.

Technology is also changing the curriculum taught to journalism major’s in college. Journalism major’s now have to be well-rounded with using computers and certain types of software like: Adobe Reader, Avid New Cutter, etc.

Colleges have expanded their journalism programs by adding multimedia studies. Being a journalist these days means being aware of what new products are out there and how to use those products.

Journalism is in fact being affected by technology but in a positive way by allowing technology to help you out.
