Tweets from the 48th Kansas Journalism Institute
From the @KUJournalism account, I had the opportunity to follow some of the students attending the J-School’s 48th annual Kansas Journalism Institute (KJI). It seemed like the visiting high school students learned a great deal about issues facing journalist’s today, trends in modern storytelling and programs our institution has in place to give students the tools they need to become professionals.
Following the tweets got me excited about our industry. Being witness to a fresh, enthusiastic new batch of storytellers told me that despite industry changes and challenges, we’ll have a great group of people ready to discover and create new opportunities to tell the news in today’s modern age of digital delivery and social media. The following are a few of my favorite tweets from KJI:
@GMRexroat #KJI2011 learning a lot of GREAT information about design from Tom and Kathy and getting ideas for next year.
@kaitlinrounds I love Habiger so much. Especially when she plays Ke$ha and Flo Rida before her design presentation. #kji2011
@MaxThoman Well damn. Didnt know i could have so much fun snapping at #kji2011. I feel like a kid again, too bad i have to be an editor in the morning.
@rekhilperts Fun to see #KJI2011 tweets. That prog sent me on the path to jschool at KU. “Eric Adler from KC Star at the morning session of #KJI2011”
