Now In Beta: The Hearken Notebook
The Hearken notebook is a tool for reporters, and is in the process of being built and tested by Hearken. The notebook tool allows journalists to share their work during the reporting process and get valuable input from their audience. It fosters transparency and builds the public’s news literacy as they see how journalism gets made. Think of it as a mash-up of a newsletter, a liveblog, and a behind-the-scenes piece, alongside easy two-way conversation with individual audience members.
The Hearken notebook in the wild:
- Current notebook in progress: Dispatches from Brave Little State by Vermont Public Radio
- Earlier notebook: Notes from MisInfoCon, by Hearken’s Julia Haslanger
