We are in an exciting age of rapid technological change. Innovative forms of storytelling are emerging which allow journalists and newsrooms to reach new audiences, and provide them with opportunities to interact with quality journalism in new and exciting ways. Keeping up with the pace of change can be a challenge, and often creators need guidance on how to get started, and information on what resources are available.
This session will provide you with an high level overview of the Google News Initiative, The Google News Lab, and Journalism 360, a joint initiative in immersive storytelling with the Knight Foundation, Google News Lab and the Online News Association, providing best practices, research and thought leadership on this quickly evolving space.
