Archived Chat: What Are Practical Ways to Teach Social Media Skills in Journalism School?

In this week’s live educator chat, Ryan Sholin, director of news innovation at Publish2, shared tips on how to teach journalists to use social media effectively.

He expanded on tips from a recent blog post he wrote, “Five Keys to Authenticity,” and answered related questions during the July 9 chat. One of the topics of discussion was the idea that “transparency is the new objectivity.”
