Participatory Journalism and Education

I'm in Toronto for today's Exploring Fusion Power of Public and Participatory Journalism conference, speaking about the tools of tomorrow's grassroots journalism and how folks in the business can get started.

I'm glad to see that quite a few educators are part of this gathering. Their presence makes sense, given that tomorrow is the start of the annual convention of the Association for Education in Journalism and Mass Communication. My guess is that the students are, in many cases, way ahead of the teachers when it comes to understanding the tools and how to use them.

  • Jeff Jarvis is here and blogging, as usual.
  • So are Joey deVilla and Hoder. Anyone else?
  • The Globe & Mail, the biggest newspaper here, did a preview story about this gathering.
