One of the assignments in JRN 1100 – Technologies in Journalism – is the Technology News Talk (Tech Talk). This is your chance to share some technology news with the class.
Tech Talk presentations must be based on current information.
The Tech Talk must relate to multimedia journalism news. This is not the place to talk about your favorite game, phone or iPad app/updates, family social media events or gaming platforms.
