News Dept., Japan Broadcasting Corporation (NHK), Tokyo, Japan
Jan 30–Mar 30, 2017. Working with Jay Hamilton, Communication Dept.
My interest as a journalist is how my profession best function in the digital era. The broadcasting industry has been losing influence, and in order to fulfil its mission must find new ways to reach individuals, including digital natives. My focus at H-STAR is how to apply new technologies to journalism. I will also examine the role of “community managers” who cultivate networks of viewers and readers. In addition, as a program director specializing in education and technology, I will look at ways trends in educational technology will change the education landscape.
