APPLICATIONS FOR THIS WORKSHOP ARE NO LONGER BEING ACCEPTED
Poynter’s Ellyn Angelotti, faculty for Digital Trends and Social Media will lead this workshop.
To figure where journalism is heading, we need to push the conversation beyond the traditional ideas we hear recirculating everyday in the social media echochamber. We need to connect the dots between the present and the future of media.
During this interactive one-day TEDx event, we will tap into the minds of influential thought leaders from the broadest sections of the media industry. They will all inspire us with their stories and share their visions for the future of journalism.
Some questions we’ll answer throughout the day include:
- What form(s) will journalism take in the future?
- What can organizations outside of journalism teach us about the future of media?
- How do we navigate some of the biggest challenges currently facing journalism?
Here’s the schedule for the day.
Participants will collaborate with others at the event (and those following along virtually) to complete the sentence: “The future of journalism is …”
All talks will be live-streamed and recorded. Seating is limited to 100 people. A Tweetup will follow the event.
All TEDxParticipants are invited to Sreenivasan’s Social Media One Night Stand on Thursday, May 31, from 6 to 8 p.m. at Poynter.
What is TEDx?
In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TED has created a program called TEDx. TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. Our event is called TEDxPoynter, where x = independently organized TED event. At our TEDxPoynter event, TEDTalks video and live speakers will combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events, including ours, are self-organized.
This independent TEDx event is operated under license from TED.
