School of Data

Have you desired to learn how to use data to uncover stories that nobody else sees or grasps? Would you like to learn how to communicate those complicated stories using visualizations people can and want to understand? Would you like to see more in-depth, data-driven storytelling in your country? Then this opportunity is for you.
UNESCO is funding a 12-month pilot program at JumpStart to cover the spectrum of concepts, techniques, and skills a journalist needs today to communicate the complex processes in our societies only data can distill, while at the same time providing the skills that employers are now seeking in journalists today.

The program covers journalists from Georgia, Armenia, and Azerbaijan and will require 4 1-week-long intensive workshops (expenses will be covered) in Tbilisi throughout the 12-month-long program. Participants will not only acquire the conceptual knowledge underlying data journalism today, but will learn the tools of the trade. In addition, each participant will be required to then share this new capacity among their colleagues in a series of localized workshops. What better way to learn than to teach!

JumpStart is the leading data journalism and data visualization organization in the region. With 3 years of experience in data journalism, data-driven advocacy, and data visualization in the South Caucasus, there is no other organization as qualified to prepare aspiring journalists to succeed in this new and exciting evolution of journalism. To explore some of our work, check out Feradi Info (http://feradi.info), a collection of data visualizations on important issues in the South Caucasus in English, Armenian, and Azeri languages.
