A Message To My Students

What an amazing tool the internet can be. You can research a term paper, collect facts for an essay, buy a favorite book or follow your community and world with an endless amount of informative websites. It wasn't all that long ago, that we were limited by what we would hear on the TV, radio or newspaper. But now you literally have the globe at your fingertips. Over the next several weeks, I would like you, to share some of your passions while at the same time, stay informed by following the latest stories that shape our world. That's why I have asked you to create and maintain a blog so that you and your classmates can help each other usher in the amazing power of the internet and New Media Journalism. I would like you to update and maintain your blog a couple of times a week. I would like you to post an original opinion on something media related once every seven days and to also share links or copy and paste articles that you find interesting. In the future, I will require every student who participates in MEA 225 or MEA 230 to do the same. Consider yourselves the trailblazers and good luck!
