Digital Journalism refers to the production and distribution of reports on recent events via internet. Digital journals can be used as learning material and an assessment tool for English Language Teaching. Through Digital Journalism students can develop Listening, Speaking, Reading and Writing skills. Further, students can update their practical knowledge. During lab hours, students are asked to read the journals related to Engineering or current affairs, and to take notes. This will improve their reading and writing skill. To improve the listening and speaking skills of the students, Group Discussion classes are conducted on the topics they have read. Hence, teaching English language with digital journalism will save time and energy. At the same time it will update their practical knowledge to compete in the digital world.
