future interpreted for us now

Discussing trends and innovative techniques for digital journalism has always been at the heart of newsrewired, where the programme’s mix of panels and workshops is designed to help delegates return to their newsrooms with new ideas and practical knowledge to implement in their work.

But starting up a new project can be tricky – from funding it to implementing new workflows in the organisation, there are many factors to consider along the way. At our next newsrewired digital journalism conference on 8 February, we’ll bring together three funding recipients of Google’s Digital News Initiative (DNI) to discuss the projects they are currently working on.

With just over a month to go until the next newsrewired digital journalism conference, Journalism.co.uk is pleased to announce Claire Wardle, research director of First Draft, as the keynote speaker at the event, covering ways to address misinformation online.

In this keynote, Wardle will consider the whole spectrum of the misinformation ecosystem, and using research about audience behaviour and social psychology, will outline ways that newsrooms can start tackling the issues associated with fake news, hoaxes, misattributed and manipulated content that surfaces online.

Claire Wardle leads strategy and research at First Draft, a non-profit dedicated to finding solutions to the challenges associated with trust and truth in the digital age. She was previously the research director at the Tow Center for Digital Journalism at Columbia Journalism School, head of social media for the UN Refugee Agency and director of news services for Storyful.
