#SoL15 Day 22: blogging / curating

Social media and mobile plays a large role in Millennial news consumption…today I had a go at a morning post (aka anything to put off posting to the precarious faculty blog). Unable to let go of multi-tasking, I was also commenting on TWT blogs now and writing 750 Words (my other deadline for the day).

PS: Posted at midnight EST -- so much an early start

Taking time off from posting to the precarious faculty blog does not mean time off the Precarious Faculty Network, which includes related blogs, social media and feeds, mine and others.

That blog is the network hub and loaded with feeds and widgets. I've been adding to the Reading Room (continuously fed fresh content by a Diigo linkroll) and feeds to InoReader. I'm behind on blog bundling projects.

Even with all that, I stay on the lookout for fresh content. Via Stephen Downes' page, I found this series, ChangSchoolTalks 2015, short videos of presentations. No, it's not "Change School" (my first impression too).

How Millennials Get News: Inside the habits of America’s first digital generation
❝This research was conducted by the Media Insight Project — an initiative of the American Press Institute and the Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research 
For years, researchers and social critics have worried that the newest generation of American adults is less interested in news than those who grew up in the pre-digital age.❞
Now compare this to Bryan Alexander's discussion of how he gets his news. Stephen Downes also addresses feeds and online content in his Spring Blog Festival presentation
