School papers go global;Bytes

The process is simple: students copy their articles on to a form on the site, which then goes to a password-protected staging area where a teacher can check them before they are put on the school's newspaper site.

Highwired.Net also plans to set up a system allowing schools to regularly exchange stories, thereby forging links at the same time.
