Pressto is the first writing and micro-journalism platform for Kindergarten through High School. We teach students across the globe to communicate more clearly, to process and interpret information, and reduce their risk of depression and self-harm from social media.

How? We give voice and agency to students. Pressto is built for accessibility. Our cognitive behavioral therapy teaches critical thinking and media, communication, and life skills. Pressto leaves young people less susceptible to the manipulations of social media.

Frequently asked questions

What is Pressto?

Pressto is a website that helps to develop media literacy, critical thinking & strong writing skills by making journalism easy and lovable for K-12 students.

How does Pressto work?

Pressto gives voice and agency to students of all ages. The folks at Pressto use cognitive behavior science to teach media literacy while you use the software. While you write, Pressto teaches the ability to identify different types of media and understand the messages they're sending. At Pressto, we believe this is acutely important for the media you read, watch and listen to AND to the media you create.
