The Student View Scales Up

Congratulations to The Student View who received substantial funding from Google.org and the Financial Times to scale their pop-up newsrooms in England’s social mobility cold spots and other areas of the UK.

The Student View, funded at TFN London in December 2016, works to improve media literacy for children, with journalists mentoring children during workshops to give them a chance to share their world through words. 

With the funding, The Student View will be able to establish 30 pop-up newsrooms in schools located across the UK including in Bradford, Hastings and Norwich, where children will receive media literacy training and mentoring from local and national journalists covering topics such as fact vs opinion, spotting misinformation and the basic principles of news.​​
