Blog #2: The Future

Due date: Friday, March 11
Minimum words: 400
Minimum links: 2 (Link to at least your project and one other group's project for the 2 links)

As you and your group work to create a newspaper, news system, device, or media outlet that can survive the next ten years, you’ll be asking important questions and coming to some conclusions about the state of newspapers.

Remember, you don’t have to answer all or any of these prompts.

From your experiences brainstorming for this project;
  1. What have you come to understand about newspapers right now?
  2. Are you finding any "good news" about either the present state or the future of news?
  3. What are successful outlets doing that others aren't?
  4. How do you think the job of a reporter is changing? How will it continue to change?
  5. What are the main struggles you had making a newspaper people would buy and advertisers would support?
  6. What are newspapers (or any news agency) going to struggle with in the near future?
  7. What are you basing your ideas for the future on?
  8. What are your main conclusions about the future of news, reporting, and/or news creation?
Embed your group's project and PowerPoint and write a reflection on it as a portfolio entry.

Include visuals if possible. Take pictures of your designs, export your InDesign project as a jpeg, embed your Google Presentation, or save your Illustrator or PhotoShop files for the web and upload them to your blog.


  • Write about what you did, the things you learned along the way, what you think you did well and what areas you still have for improvement.
  • What would you do differently if you could do it again?
  • How can it be applied to future projects and layouts?
