The Time is now
RELEASE your STORIES
with our innovative publishing tool
welcome to a world of credible user generated content
”Being able to publish on the internet comes with a great responsibility. At a time when everyone is a ’publisher’, we all need to acquire some of the skills and knowledge of professional journalists. Mobile Stories provide an innovative publishing tool that helps students, colleagues or members of an organization alike; to create, publish and share credible content. With the production tool users are carefully guided through the creation of different kinds of media, and then through the publication process, with small instrumental help on text, check questions on copyright, press standards, source criticism, laws and fair online behaviour. The articles need to be pushed forward through several ‘editorial filters’ such as peer review and editors´ approval, before they are published. Your credible and professional content is then ready to fly.”
Jenny Sköld and Lotta Bergseth, social entrepreneurs and journalists
Is your organization ready to take the next step when it comes to finding stories among members or employees? We are currently looking for a pilot organization that is interested in developing our innovation together with us.
Media and information literacy isn’t intuitive for any of us. It is something we all need to practice.
Co-creating content is an effective and engaging way to work for schools, organizations and companies for lifelong learning
Mobile Stories provides a unique and scalable edtech solution for safer, smarter and more professional publications. With the ”digital editorial filter”, users are guided through the publishing process by experts and simultaneously train their storytelling skills. The journalists Jenny Sköld and Lotta Bergseth have, in cooperation with the solution architect Johan Glimskog, designed a tool that can revolutionize learning within media, information literacy and source criticism – for a sustainable democracy.

In order to provide our tool and methodology in a context, as well as offering theoretical support, and to thus meet the new writing in the governing documents in the field of media and information skills; we have written a handbook, Source Criticism in Practice that provides all you need to know. Based on our experience in Photo-Journalism and Pedagogy, we reflect on the ever changing media landscape and highlight the tools and skills needed to navigate in this complex landscape.

Mobile Stories in Reach for Change Final Round
On January 30, we find out if Mobile Stories is one of three innovations that have been designated as part of Reach for Changes incubator.
In a workshop with young in Lottakåren Mobile Stories educated members to write professionally about female role models.
– I have previously had problems writing texts but now I have got tools that I need to easily write a text step by step, says Isabelle, one of the young participants in the workshop.
– The teachers should use this as a tool at school, everyone should use and learn Mobile Stories sometime because it was so logical,” says Maja.
– Now you can understand articles in the newspapers for real because you have an understanding of the structure of the articles, Matilda says.
We are looking forward to fantastic articles from Lottakåren.

From Our Clients
”Mobile Stories is a wonderful tool that forces one to work more carefully with source criticism. It simplifies this with the peer review, because it is built into the publishing process and there is a chat for communication between the students.”Wiltrud Daniels
“For me, this has become a way to be a new kind of Swedish teacher, one who fits into this millennium.”David Hajtowitz
”Mobile Stories is a very clever publishing tool where students themselves can be publishers and journalists, practice in source criticism and write texts to real recipients. We have just started writing texts and they start already to become so very professional.”Maria Wiman
