For a class I had to write a research paper about a kind of interactive technology and how it’s changing the way we do things. I decided to write my paper on how mobile devices like smart phones and tablets, change the way people get their news, interact with the news and how reporters report the news. I got the idea for the topic of this research paper after attending the SPJ Region 7 conference in Ames, Iowa. Jenn Jarvis, of KWWL, gave the presentation and it was pretty surprising how quickly people have picked up the use of these brand spanking new technologies.
It’s really impressive how quickly technology changes. It’s even more impressive how it changes society and behavior.
