Temple University’s School of Media and Communication will work with The Dallas Morning News, Philadelphia Media Network and the Miami Herald as places to test mobile and digital practices aimed at legacy newsrooms. The project, called the Knight-Temple Table Stakes Project, was announced Monday and is funded by $1.3 million from the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation.
From the press release:
Temple University will use a team-based approach to help the newsrooms identify and gather insights into the technology, workflows, roles and skills required in an increasingly digital and mobile world. The newsrooms will use these lessons to bring changes to their current processes and share their experiences with the field. The project is also expected to yield a set of online tools and templates designed to help legacy newsrooms speed up digital adoption.
