Bring Student Publications Online

With more and more professional publications moving production all online, including the recent announcement from Newsweek, it’s time to stop teaching students antiquated journalism skills. To prepare our students to succeed in today’s competitive media environment, they need to learn and practice much more than traditional layout, reporting and writing skills. From podcasting, video, photo and sound production, moving online is the only way to stay relevant. Invest time and energy into making the change, and do the right thing for you and your students.

As a coach, history and journalism teacher at Brimmer and May, a wonderful independent school in Chestnut Hill, Massachusetts, I have the absolute best job in the world. I am thrilled to get up every morning to engage with interesting young people, and I'm equally fortunate to have such amazing colleagues and mentors. As the founder of Spin Education, I encourage you to check-in frequently and submit posts and lessons—all in an effort to better our practice as teachers.
