At Journalism.co.uk, we’re counting down the days until the next newsrewired digital journalism conference on 8 February, and we have some updates about the event this week (keep an eye out for future posts as well).
We’re pleased to announce speakers from the FT and First Draft will be joining us on stage to discuss the latest techniques in digital journalism.
Newsrewired takes place on 8 February at Reuters in London, and the agenda for the day will also cover online privacy for journalists, news games, collaboration in the newsroom, and how news organisations can tackle the misinformation ecosystem and fake news
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.
