FUTURE TALK #8
Training 21st Century Journalists
Since most of us get most of our information from the media, it’s important to know how future journalists are being trained. This episode looks at the journalism program at Palo Alto High School, one of the largest and most innovative programs of its type in the U.S. In addition to on location footage of students and teachers involved in the program, there are two in-studio guests. Esther Wojcicki founded the program about 25 years ago and has played a central role in its growth and success ever since. She blogs regularly for the Huffington Post, has won numerous teaching awards, and is the mother-in-law of Google co-founder Sergey Brin. Paul Kandell is a highly acclaimed teacher who was named 2009 National Journalism Teacher of the Year by the Dow Jones Newspaper Fund, and who has long been active in training other journalism teachers.
