Student journalist try their hands at innovation

In a contest at the Reynolds Journalism Institute at the University of Missouri, students compete to get creative in making apps for different platforms, as this post details. Contests like these are important, especially for journalism students, because it pushes the limits on what is and what isn’t journalism. It forces students to think outside the box, and with so much of journalism changing and evolving to fit society, this is a necessary tool. It also teaches students to think in terms of apps and social media, which is extremely important in today’s journalism.
