8. Developmental function: In developing a country like the Philippines, scholastic and commercial journalism has been given greater and nobler significance. The sources of new journalists are school also. Journalists in campus publications are most likely to be the journalists of the future. The young journalist whose news deals with club activities, school elections and campus activities will eventually become a better one whose news deal with activities of the nation, national elections and national concerns. The developmental function of the campus paper doesn't only have implications on the young one himself but also on the school as a whole. School administrators and staff may reflect their performance on the school paper and see what improvements must be done. Exercise 2 ESSAY Direction: Answer the following questions in no less than five sentences. (10 points each) 1. Discuss the importance of campus journalism in schools and society. 2.

Now, when you go to websites to read an article you will more than likely see a video clip within the article. It is much more appealing for the reader to see pictures and videos while reading a newsprint article; this is the formula for convergence. This new type of journalism makes the reporter more attractive to future employers because of their knowledge and skill in the different types of media outlets. Rather than being an expert in only broadcast journalism, convergence allows the journalist to be an expert in print and photography. Lesson 3.1 Social Media Social media platforms such as Facebook, Instagram, Snapchat and Twitter play a big role in this new era of digital journalism.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
