Blog: The Educated Reporter

Welcome to the New EWA Online

If you had bookmarked The Educated Reporter, you’ve probably noticed it now takes you to EWA’s brand-new (and, I might add, thoroughly fantastic) website. But don’t be fooled – the new site is about a lot more than just good looks: It’s also easy to navigate and search, and collects all of our first-rate content under one roof.

Among that content: Our topics pages are the best place to start if you’re working on a story and need essential background, or ideas for digging deeper. Whether its classroom technology at the K-12 level or college affordability (a particularly timely topic in light of this week’s White House summit) we’ve got you covered. 

I also encourage you to check out some of our new resources, including the latest edition to our Reporter Guide series. Ben Wieder of the Center for Public Intergrity put together a blueprint on how to use polling data in education reporting, and I know it’s going to be particularly helpful to journalists when they gear up for the midterm elections. 

There’s another great feature to the new site, and that’s the chance to spotlight some of the superb work being done by EWA’s journalist members. If a story catches your attention – and please  feel free to blow your own horns – let us know by tweeting it with the hashtag #TellEWA. You can also alert us by filling out this form. We’ll select some of the best submissions for our weekly roundup.
