New Media: Toolkit for an Engaged World

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Media has broken through its traditional boundaries to occupy nearly every facet of our lives, our communities, and our sense of the world. Social and mobile media are disrupting mass broadcast, forging new networks and narratives with a profound impact on journalism. How do
we reimagine the roles of audience, journalist, and media enterprise in this new reality? What innovations are driving citizen engagement in the networked world? What are the future business models that can sustain media that matters? This will be a participatory discussion that builds on the morning’s plenary session, “Tomorrow’s Media.” First we’ll hear from leading media innovators, then open up a conversation on questions such as: Who decides what’s news, and how? How are citizens best engaged around news? What skills must tomorrow’s journalists master? What media skills must citizens have? Where is the line for media between activation and advocacy?
