A free summer seminar for experienced high school journalism advisers

From the 23 teachers who attended this workshop in July 2019, we have included Solutions Journalism Story Ideas, other Story Ideas for a whole range of topics and Tech Examples of something they learned, many of these for data visualization, plus some resources anyone can use in the future for these topics.

Using infogr.am

I created an infographic using data from two articles from the Omaha World Herald in regards to all of the new schools that will be built in our district in the next 5 years. We recently passed a bond issue, and my students will continue to report on the progress. I will suggest that they use infogr.am because it is easy to input data and makes it easy for readers to get a lot of information with numbers without a lot of words.  They can use similar ones throughout the next 5 years as the work progresses.

My example can be seen at:
