I am so happy to announce that I will be doing some consulting work with Convergence Design Lab at Columbia College here in Chicago to evaluate and conduct action research on the Free Spirit Media programming in Chicago high schools. Free Spirit Media is a organization that teaches journalism to high school children in low income communities of color as a means to increase both their civic engagement and critical consciousness. I have been following their program for quite some time on social media and I am happy to be apart (albeit a small one) of their growth, scalability and evaluation. For more information about their work, check out freespiritmedia.org
