The Digital Reporter'¬"s Notebookdevelops reporting skills using everyday digital technology to capture the elements of good stories. Mark Blaine shows students how applying the basic skills of multimedia storytelling to their reporting can reinforce the principles of quality journalism: audio can teach interviewers how to listen, video can teach reporters how to keep focused on their subjects. Each media technology has something to offer our core understanding of storytelling. And each can reinforce truth telling and accuracy in its own way. By approaching stories with a multimedia perspective from the beginning, this book shows students how to build a strong foundation in text, audio, and visual storytelling. The Digital Reporter'¬"s Notebookis a toolkit, a training plan, and an ethics guide for defining interactive journalismÊ¼s best practices. The Digital Reporter'¬"s Notebookis a multimedia learning tool itself. ItÊ¼s a print textbook with examples, photos, illustrations, and references. And it'¬"s also a rich companion website with examples of multimedia work, interactive exercises, video tutorials, and a "workout plan" for budding media storytellers. The workout plan includes daily skills exercises that students can use to hone their skills in text, audio and visual storytelling. The Digital Reporter'¬"s Notebookis ideal for online journalism courses and introductory reporting courses using a convergence approach.
