What we do
Mobile Stories provides an educating publishing tool and a media platform for professional user generated content. The platform is used in schools to train students, and their teachers, in media- and information literacy. With Mobile Stories, students in secondary and high school, create and publish their school work on a media platform where they can reach an audience beyond classroom walls. Mobile Stories empowers young people with 21 Century skills and supports them to engage in public discourse.
The tool and platform is so versatile, it can also be used in various types of projects or workshops for young people (under 25), for example at libraries or in NGOs. We have been asked to develop versions where organizations can integrate our tool into their existing design and platforms, and are currently looking for funding for this particular developments’ requirments.
The Founders of Mobile Stories are always available for other ventures, such as public speaking, think tanks – as well as workshops for students, teachers or school management, to inspire and find new ways of strengthening communication skills, media and information literacy in schools or youth organizations.
