For the past two months, 8 teen journalists working with ThreeSixty Journalism, a youth journalism program at the University of St. Thomas in St. Paul, Mn., have been reporting on teens & technology issues.  After producing strong print pieces -- www.threesixtyjournalism.org/collection/intermediate-camp-stories -- they are working with three ThreeSixty alumnae to produce an online tutorial that will guide teens to assess their online reputations, repair damage, learn to handle online drama. The tool also includes video interviews with an employer, high school principal, Army recruiter and others who monitor and judge teens' social media presence.  The tool will be launched at a big public event at the Minneapolis Central Library on Sept. 26.
