We are sorry but the full site content is only available to registered CLiCNews users.

CLiC News- is an outreach project within the Dublin Institute of Technology Access and Civic Engagement (ACE) Office.

Our free news website, CLiCNews, was set up in conjunction with the DIT School of Media and another ACE Programme - Students Learning with Communities (SLWC) to provide a resource for those schools. We have subsequently made the site available to all primary schools and would invite teachers who are interested in using the site with their class to contact us. .

We have set up a restricted site as we want to produce a safe environment for children and we believe at the moment that teachers and, more importantly parents, agree with this arrangement. In particular restricting CLiCNews in this way allows children to leave comments without feeling intimidated and ensures that they will only come in contact with their peers or teachers.

Within the site news items are written by Journalist students from the DIT at a level which reflects the age range of the children and are presented in a way which precludes using graphical images and language which are unsuitable for young children.

As an encouragement and aid to improving Reading and Writing skills the children are encouraged to comment on stories which have been published.

All the children's comments are moderated and we rely on a small number of volunteers, with a teaching background, and ourselves in the office to check them and award stars to those with good grammar and content. We also provide facilities for registered teachers to download the children's comments from their school so that the content can be assessed offline. This is what distinguishes CLiCNews from other children's news content which is freely available.

Within CLiCNews, as a parallel to published news items, we run various Polls and Competitions.

For more information on CLiCNews and how you may apply to register your class please contact us HERE



CLiCNews is run in conjunction with the Journalism Department of the DIT School of Media.
This is part of an initiative organised through the Access and Civic Engagement Students Learning With Communities' programme.
