Knowledge, Learning, Community

News media indicators continue to lead education indicators by about ten or fifteen years, and while this might not be very good news for educators over the coming decade there are signs that there may be something emerging out the other side of the media commercialization collapse. First, we may see "engagement and engaging as the next revenue model for newsrooms." Second, journalists are looking to become "less harmful to the communities they haven't served well, or who they outright damaged" (some of Miguel Guhlin's recent writing resonates here). And third, there is an ascendance of people "helping the organization to lay to rest practices that no longer serve its stakeholders, and experimenting with and amplifying the new ways of working that show promise." They're no longer outliers. They're the future.
