Is your school district adapting to the changing world of school communications?
Does you department need to restructure to deal with this new revolution?
As school district communications changes to a more marketing and content delivery role… is it too far out of left field to say a school district will buy a local newspaper in the next 20 years?
The Future of School Communications
In this podcast, I discuss the changing role of school communications and marketing, and how we can adapt to these trends.
Is Your Communications Department Evolving?
Over the past three years there has been a resurgence of the journalism occupation. Not necessarily in the form of a traditional newspaper, but the need for people who can tell your story has become very important.
With the increasing popularity of blogs, video and content marketing, we will need storytellers more than ever. And to do that at the local level is critical.
Things will change. We will adapt. And in 20 years there will be a school district that purchases a local newspaper.
