Google News Lab works with many major publications training them to use Google tools, which help on specific aspects on reporting.
The NUJ is aware that freelances can often miss out on the skills and training that can assist work, so, as a new initiative, we have organised a free half-day workshop for NUJ members, run by Google News Lab, which will teach you many aspects of Google tools. This will include these three sessions:
Journalist can use sGoogle tools to research, report and visualize a story. This session will walk through advanced search and image search, Google trends, public data and the practical tips and tricks you can use on a daily basis.
An introduction to video, and You Tube, covering short formats designed for on-the-go audiences, long form documentaries and interactive; this session will provide lessons and case studies from around the world.
From breaking news to long-form feature reporting, a map can help tell a thousand stories. In this session you will see how embeddable maps can help visualise a story that engages the viewer and displays information in an engaging format. This workshop will teach you how to build your own Maps, how to explore and integrate StreetView and Earth imagery and organise data to create compelling interactives. (For use of Google maps you will need a gmail address.)
NUJ freelance members should sign up free now at firstname.lastname@example.org. Places are limited.
This event is for NUJ members only. Please consider joining the NUJ if you would like to attend this event.
