English and journalism teachers are always looking for new and innovated ways to teach their students. Creating a fun and engaging curriculum for high school students when studying journalism can be both exciting and challenging. This presentation will explore different avenues of using technology in the journalism classroom as well as assessment rubrics for grading this student assessment. This presentation will, also, explore the concept of allowing students to self monitor themselves and teaching professionalism to high school student. These concepts and projects are engaging as well as constructive lessons on how students can use technology to create modern styles of journalism. Some of the projects this presentation will be exploring is the selfie project, news broadcast, and advertising commercials. The hypothesis is that students will use these skills in other classes and continue building proper technology skills in order to write and create.
