The Challenge: Organize an online system enabling journalism students to help each other create and organize their stories, photographs, and artwork.

The Tools: Schoology discussions.

The Assignment: Students post their story topic/angle and then comment on other people’s stories with reader questions, angle ideas, and potential sources.

The Result: Outstanding student journalism. The Prospector staff continues to produce an award-winning student newspaper, evolving with the digital times. The photograph below was the final product of the discussion above.
