Providing newspapers for classroom use began in 1970 with the Newspaper in Education (NIE) program. Winner of 20 Pulitzer Prizes, we provide the best journalism in South Florida. At no cost to participating teachers, NIE strives to promote literacy through readership. Our goal is for students to nurture the desire to read effectively by using the newspaper as a textbook. For Spanish lessons, teachers turn to the award winning el Nuevo Herald - one of our nation's premier Spanish language newspapers.
In 2008, NIE began providing digital copies of The Miami Herald and el Nuevo Herald to classrooms. Today's students want immediate news and entertainment in a digitized format using the latest software. As we embrace these changes we offer an advantage by providing the digital newspaper 24/7 wherever there is Internet connection.
In 2012, our new name "NewsMedia In Education" reflects the way we now deliver information to the classroom.
NIE continues to shine by providing subject-specific lessons for every grade level using standards that are comprehensively aligned by the Florida Department of Education. Our NewsMedia in Education (NIE) program is entirely funded through subscriber donations and sponsorships from advertisers. Access to the digital newspaper as well as any printed themed sections are freely available to all Miami-Dade, Broward and Monroe County school teachers who request it.
