Abstract:
One of the most common activities of university students in the areas of journalism and communication is to write news or research articles for their classes. To do this, students apply the concepts they studied in their courses to do fieldwork, conduct research, and to write the news. To facilitate this academic activity, we developed the InContext mobile application (app), which contains preloaded templates to guide the student through the process of news writing and research reporting. This application allows a student to add audio, video files, photos and link this to the information. The first stage of our research was for diagnostic purposes. It consisted of a review of the reports and textual articles prepared by students to identify the necessary characteristics that should be considered for the templates we were designing. The second stage consisted of the development of the application and its testing to get feedback and make necessary adjustments to the app. The results so far indicate that, with the teacher's guidance, students follow the required structure of the template, but elements of formatting that could be predicted with the use of the app escape them. Ideally, the app will allow the student to focus on the quality of the content. The future evolution of the app envisages redesigning it to include activities that promote the development of cognitive skills through the use of the app.
