The Death of the Newspaper

I'm not going to recap the last couple of week's media storm. For anyone who missed it, Andrew Keen covered it well in his blog on March 20th. There are links to Johnson and Shirky's material predicting the end of the newspaper and lots more related stuff.

The point is, the media word is changing radically. My pupils don't watch CNN or read The Times. And they're most likely never going to. These things are unlikely to survive in their present form until my pupils are adults. How do we teach media studies and the media elements in social science when the ground is shifting beneath our feet?
