WhichWayNC: A Model for Mobile Media Development
Clark, Meredith D.
Journalism and Mass Communication Educator, v70 n3 p251-263 Sep 2015
This student newsroom ethnography examines the emergent culture and values of a group-created news and information content with a mobile-first focus. Using semi-structured interviews from 12 participants working on a mobile-optimized summer news project, the study provides insights on the work practices of the digital student newsroom. Validated through the use of textual analysis and member checks, these findings offer four key values that are applicable as part of a reflexive pedagogy in student digital media production. This study offers insights that can be scaled for a journalism program of any size.
