Abstract/Summary As journalism grapples with technological disruption, the value of its practices to audiences, and society more broadly, is being questioned. Journalism is underpinned by a strong value system that modern communication platforms sometimes obscure. Yet we know that technology can be designed to support values — professional and more general human values. In this short paper, we present some initial findings of how students engaged with journalistic values through a human-centred design process. Through researching, designing and reflecting, aspiring journalists explored ideas for technologies that embodied journalistic values. The process revealed value tensions but also perspectives on the design of communication technology.
