If you’re a high school student interested in journalism, or if you’re a teacher or parent trying to help your students build an online news site, please come to our second High School Student News Workshop on Oct. 22.

We’ll talk about the future of news and then you can choose a whole morning of programs featuring voiceofsandiego.org staff and SDSU professor Amy Schmitz Weiss.

It’s not easy to move the traditional student newspaper into the digital age. Come talk to some who have done it, others who can help you do it and others who just want to explore new ideas.

Going online with student news brings a host of advantages: lower cost, more frequency and relevance, and a learning environment closer to the real world. There are new things to consider like crowdsourcing, engaging readers, the complexity of analyzing real-time polls, and the mix of blogging and longer stories.

Whether your school publishes only online, in print and online, in print, or not at all, this workshop has something new for you. Take a look at the details.

Date: Saturday, October 22

Time: 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.

Location: San Diego Foundation building in Liberty Station (Point Loma). 2508 Historic Decatur Rd., San Diego, CA 92106.

There is no cost to attend the program, but advance registration is required by Oct. 20, 2011. To register, simply email summer@voiceofsandiego.org with your name and the school you attend.
