News sites are no longer the end destination for news photos. Instead, they are the jumping-off point for a larger life, sometimes a viral one, as an object of thought, a unit of persuasion, a less contextualized narrative and a continuous dialogue between professionals, advocates, and the public at large. For this presentation, I'll bring some needed definition to the current media, social media, and photojournalism environment. In the process, I'll relate this discussion about media ecology to the ecology of the classroom and show how BagNewsNotes complements and supports learning and visual literacy in a variety of teaching "atmospheres."
