Digital Promise Multimedia Case Studies

At Digital Promise, I led production of a series of multimedia case studies on innovative educational practices in school districts around the country.  For each case study, I managed the production and editing of the written case study, video, and other visual assets, and developed the promotional strategy via social media, press outreach, and email distribution. I also co-produced a short documentary as part of one of the case studies.

Brave Old World is a multimedia project created by Columbia University’s cohort of the Knight-Carnegie News21 fellowship. Our team traveled the country to report a variety of stories on how the country is adapting to its rapidly aging population.

All videos, articles, graphics, and other content was produced collaboratively among fellows. Versions of our work were published in The Washington PostNYTimes.comKaiser Health News, and Forbes.com.
