Monitoring & Evaluation 2.0
Your programs incorporate new media media tools, so why doesn't your reporting?
M&E 2.0 uses innovative tools that are simple but useful to add to the basic information collected in the natural course of your work. For example, SMS is everywhere, with a seemingly infinite amount of applications. From enabling demonstrations in the Middle East, to election monitoring in Kenya, to HIV/AIDS education South Africa, and media support in Mexico, we've seen that 140 characters can make a difference.
One of the most effective ways to display development indicators is through graphs, charts and maps. A visual display of data makes comparisons easier and promotes a better understanding of trends. International Media Solutions can help your organization visualize data trapped in spreadsheets, PDFs, and written reports. The embedded map is an example of data mined from the Journalistic Freedoms Observatory (JFO) in Iraq. Combined with data available from the Committee to Protect Journalists one can see very quickly how serious an issue violence against journalists in Iraq is.
International Media Solutions specializes in teaching your organization how to capture quantitative and qualitative data using video, social networks, blogs, and mobile devices into your project's existing monitoring and evaluation framework.
