Desde cómo se verá afectada la narración de historias hasta la realidad aumentada, pasando por el iPad y la web semántica
La Universidad de Harvard ha colgado íntegro en la web el informe (en inglés) más esperado del año sobre Periodismo elaborado por la Nieman Foundation.
Bajo el título The Digital Landscape: What’s Next for News?, recoge una ingente cantidad de análisis con pautas para poder interpretar el futuro de las noticias.
Y el enfoque de partida parece el correcto: estudiar cómo el cerebro de la nuevas generaciones se enfrentan con sus nuevos hábitos cambiantes al viaje del acceso de la información, donde la lectura profunda es cosa del pasado, el video será el rey y el atractivo de la multitarea.
Recomendamos que guarda el enlace y utilice el informe como material de cabecera y de reflexión. Está en inglés, pero con Google Translator se consigue una decente traducción al español.
