August 2, 2013 in Education, Resources

Journalism Degree.org is a site dedicated to providing timely and relevant information about journalism degrees and programs. We help current and prospective students find the right program to fit their needs. With useful articles and links to accredited institutions, our site provides a single location for students interested in pursuing careers in media and mass communications. …

“But we offer much more than a list of accredited degree programs. We offer our readers an incredible blog with timely news in the journalism world as well as useful tips and suggestions on how to break into the field. Our blogger is a published writer but a recent graduate from City University of New York Graduate School of Journalism.” Source: JournalismDegree.Org

Online journalism degree scholarships make it possible to pay for your education, even if you’re already strapped for cash. Whether you’re going to college straight from high school or heading back to school after years of being in the workforce, these programs can be expensive without financial aid. Scholarships are a great way to pay for the education you need to qualify for journalism jobs such as reporting, editing, publishing, and writing.” Source: Lindsay Harper, JournalismDegree.Org

New America Media is the country’s first and largest national collaboration and advocate of 2000 ethnic news organizations. Over 57 million ethnic adults connect to each other, to home countries and to America through 3000+ ethnic media, the fastest growing sector of American journalism…

NAM produces, aggregates and disseminates multimedia content and services for and from the youth and ethnic media sectors. NAM has developed these pathways to achieve our goals:

GROW A COLLECTIVE presence for the more than 3,000 ethnic news outlets nationwide and professionalize the sector through the following:

  • Awards and EXPOs
  • Journalism school partnerships
  • Newsmaker briefings
  • Seminars and workshops for professional development
  • National Directory of Ethnic Media
  • Newsletters – editorial and marketing…

BRING THE VOICES of otherwise invisible communities – ethnic minorities, immigrants, young people – into national and regional focus through multi-lingual and cell phone polls. Some of our most recent polls that made headlines nationwide:

  • Deep Divisions, Shared Destiny – A Poll of Black, Hispanic, and Asian Americans on Race Relations
  • Historic Poll of Undocumented Immigrants From Latin America
  • California Dreamers: A public opinion portrait of the most diverse generation the nation has known…

ENHANCE YOUTH DEVELOPMENT programs that produce peer-to-peer youth media and inter-generational dialogue through ethnic and mainstream media. Youth media content from YO! Youth Outlook, YO! TV, Silicon Valley De-Bug, The Beat Within, Sprawl Magazine, Roaddawgz and The Know provides a window into youth culture.

DEVELOP AND PROMOTE social marketing and corporate messaging campaigns that expand the sector’s access to advertising. NAM has channeled over $13 million in advertising dollars to ethnic media from HUD, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Flex Your Power, The California Endowment, California’s Administrative Office of the Courts, and Kaiser Permanente.” Source: New America Media

OpenMissouri.org

October 7, 2011 in Craft, Education, Policy, Resources

[OpenMissouri.org] offers information on what data sets government agencies have. First of all, while governmental agencies collect a great deal of information, much of it is not available online. Nor is what is collected always publicized or well known.

This site lists what information is available. Think of it as a directory of information that’s collected by the state of Missouri.

OpenMissouri.org lists what data sets exists, what format the data set is in (i.e. Excel, Word document), the date the data was collected or time period which it covers, how often it is updated, any fixed cost for the database, the agency that collects the information, contact information and so forth.

Anyone can use this information, from citizens to journalists to businesses.

The site was officially launched in March 2011 and is the result of Herzog’s Donald W. Reynolds Fellowship. Herzog is a veteran investigative reporter, data journalist and educator. He teaches computer-assisted reporting (CAR) and data mapping to student and professional journalists.

The site includes an avenue to suggest additional data sets, comment on the sets and ways to use social media to share the information on the site. The site will eventually include a Sunshine letter generator to allow anyone to ask an agency to provide the information listed as available.” SourceColumbia Freelance Forum
