Bitstrips pour écoles Back to School With Bitstrips! Posted on: September 03, 2013 | By: Dana Herlihey We’re excited to enter another fun and educational year with Bitstrips for Schools!

Get Schooled Since our founding as a stand-alone non-profit in 2010, we have aimed to use the media and messengers of popular culture to inspire and engage students in an effort to improve high school graduation rates and empower more students to go to and succeed in college. Get Schooled is a national non-profit founded on the belief that students themselves have the power to improve their future if given the right information and motivation. We leverage the key influences in teens’ lives to directly engage them on their path through high school and into college. To do this, Get Schooled uses the messengers (celebrities, powerful peers, pop culture events) and the means (mobile/SMS, social, web) that youth turn to; and we meet the students where they are (online, curious, etc) to deliver the information they need to be successful in their educational pursuits. We call it ‘sizzle and substance’ – and the end result is more youth exploring and being successful on their educational path.

Prismatic wants to be the newspaper for a digital age What did the printed newspaper provide in its heyday as the information-delivery system of choice? A collection of news and other interesting content, selected by knowledgeable editors from a wide range of sources, presented in an easy-to-scan format. Now, the supply of information we have available to us is almost never-ending — but we still need an easy and efficient way to filter it, and find what is interesting and relevant, and share it with others. The field is filled with contenders who believe they can solve that problem, including News.me and Flipboard and Zite, and one of the newest is a San Francisco-based startup called Prismatic. Like a newspaper, but in real time and social
