As our staff worked on the program as an NSF-funded project, we had to have the following forms as well. If you intend to run the program as a funded project to be assessed/documented, these forms will also be necessary.
Student Assent Form
The Summer Camp:
By "Kids' Week", or the week where the students come to the college for the camp, activities have to be scheduled, interviews have to be finalized, and presentations about journalism and computer science must be prepared. "Beatbags", or bags containing all essential tools for students to use during interviews, must also be completed.
Mentored Undergraduate Summer Experience programs like TCNJ's MUSE program have also assisted in housing undergraduates. More information on how to fold the IJIMS program into a summer research program can be found here.
Journalism and Interviewing Tools
Professor Kim Pearson's Scratch Gallery for Journalism
A "sourcebook", as defined by Professor Kim Pearson, can also be useful for the program. Supervised (and contributed to) by Professor Pearson, researchers Rebecca Bernot and Nancy Sai helped compile information within the sourcebook. The sourcebook was coded by Andrew Chuisano and Dan Gill.
Café is an online publishing suite we developed just for IJIMS. It allows the students to experience all of the steps of publishing in a clean, easy-to-use interface.
