AAt the ILPC/UIL state convention in Austin this weekend I saw a demo for a product that I expect to use in my own classroom next year. This is a web-based service designed by a former high school journalism student and three journalism students called Newsroom Director. The software allows you to manage deadlines, staff and to keep your copy stored online. You also get some really great editing and work tracking tools. If this isn’t enough, your students get a way to communicate with each other. This will really eliminate the problem of lost drafts and deleted files. I’m really excited. It only costs $150 per school/per year. Just from what I’ve seen, I recommend it. And you can use it for both newspaper and yearbook. Who knows, maybe you can use it for broadcast, photographers and others too.
