Welcome, y’all

Welcome to Global Vue, a blog about how online tools are changing journalism and our society.

This place is for Dr. Deb Aikat’s class, “Global Implications of New Technology,” in the University of North Carolina’s certificate program in communications and technology.

New technology allows us a chance to see things in different ways, from broad and narrow perspectives, and with surprising connections between local and global views. This blog will focus on how people are using the new software for real reporting and journalism, in ways that perhaps the software creators didn’t anticipate.

One of the real values of the new technology is the ability to talk with each other. So please do. And thanks for visiting.
