I am currently a student at the Missouri School of Journalism pursuing a career in multimedia journalism. I believe in the importance of telling stories through multiple platforms as a way to engage and inspire an audience.
So, what is "convergence"?
Glad you asked! Convergence Journalism was introduced to the Missouri School of Journalism as a new interest area in 2005. It is merely a method of journalism in which the story is told on multiple mediums. In my 4804 Convergence Reporting class, I learned how to tell a story through video, audio, print, photography, info graphics and social media.
