Student journalism from the Droid

This year, about two dozen journalism students at Ryerson University in Toronto were given Android cell phones with the intention that they would do all of their journalism from the phone, cites this article on the MediaShift website. This includes social media journalism and posting to a class blog. So much of on-the-go journalism these days is done via phones, and as the tides of the field shift, it’s important to know how to use this kind of reporting successfully. This article shows how this one group of students navigated the task and is an interesting look at what that kind of journalism is like.
