The publishing process
Young people today are already publishers. 22% of children between the ages of 10 and 14 had their own Youtube channel in 2019, an increase from the previous year by 40% according to Orvesto junior. With Mobile Stories, young people can be trained to actively participate in the digital society and make their voice heard, tell, tip and explain to others what they themselves have learned. This in a safe context where adults are included, for example in school, library or leisure activities.
Through a solid process consisting of peer review, check questions and the editor’s (teacher or school librarian) approval, the articles are elaborated and in line with laws and the “student publicist’s ethical rules”.
This is how it works:
1. When the article is about to be completed, students can see what the article will look like when published by clicking the button “test article”.
2. The student chooses one or more sites for publication, for example their own school site, municipal site or Sweden.
3. The student invites peer reviewers to take part in the work.
4. Check questions related to the selected article type are activated. Here the student is reminded of ethical rules in publications.
5. The student receives feedback from friends and make any changes.
6. The article is placed in review mode for a teacher or librarian.
7. The teacher or librarian looks at the article and decides if it is ready for publication.
8. If the article is approved, the student can choose to publish. The student click the “publish” button and the article is published on the selected sites.
