JOUR440 best blogging, best data visualization and best Storify entry

At the end of spring 2015 semester, JOUR440 students and I voted for the best student assignments in the class. Eight students received certificates of awards in three different categories: data visualization, blogging and Storify. Congratulations again, prize winners!

It was the first time for me to teach digital media skills. A lot of fun! The only pity was that I had to teach in an outdated computer lab. I said to my students, ” I am teaching you guys 21 century skills with stone-age technologies!” As journalism moves into Sallee to merge with broadcasting, I am sure state-of-the-art facility is waiting for us journalism students and professors.
