A new digital book launched by Knight Foundation that calls for change in journalism and journalism education — and is itself an example of that change.
Searchlights and Sunglasses: Field Notes From the Digital Age of Journalism is a digital romp through the past, present and future of news written by Knight Senior Adviser Eric Newton. With one click, it turns from a standard digital book into a teaching tool. A “learning layer” appears and offers more than 1,000 links, lessons and resources, which were developed with the University of Missouri’s Donald W. Reynolds Journalism Institute.
“The HTML5 experience of the book is what makes it different from most books.… Sections of the book can be used in a variety of journalism classes — not just an introductory journalism class, but as part of lectures or topics when covering the major issues and trends in journalism today.”
–Amy Schmitz Weiss, Associate Professor, San Diego State University
“It perfectly exemplifies how cutting-edge technology can be used to achieve the best pedagogical results. This digital book … will do wonders to educate a new generation of reporters and writers … and will resonate immensely with students and teachers alike.”
–Raul Reis, Dean, School of Journalism and Mass Communication, Florida International University
“….a provocative platform to raise current issues related to the profession to the academy. It will, I expect, be assigned reading for administrators and top faculty in schools around the country…”
–Susan Moeller, Professor of Media and International Affairs & Director, International Center for Media and the Public Agenda, University of Maryland
