I just submitted our SchoolHouse Witness Project idea for the Knight News Challenge’s Second Round. We made the first cut. Now comes the tough part, do we make it into Round Three? This is a partnership with the Konpa Group, which is part of the Ushahidi network, which has done great things in information collecting via the mobile texting space in Africa.
For us the project will be part of our Center for Sustainable Journalism’s Juvenile Justice Information Exchange (JJIE.org) initiative. I really love this idea and do hope it moves on to Round Three. Since it is public, please give the SchoolHouse Witness Project a look right here. Also while there, if you like what you see, please give it a good rating. That too would be nice.
