Most journalists appreciate the need to keep abreast of technological changes, but with so many other priorities in the newsroom how do you make sure you’re not wasting time?
Speaking at news:rewired today, The Economist’s Bo Franklin and Bloomberg’s Kevin Young shared advice on how to make newsroom experimentation more productive in the long run, including tips on repackaging archive content and curating newsletters.
Journalism.co.uk’s 17th newsrewired took place last week at Reuters in Canary Wharf, London and we are pleased to have hosted so many delegates who attended the event’s panel discussions, practical workshops and spotlight talks to learn about the latest trends and techniques in digital journalism.
If you were not able to attend or if you are simply looking to refresh your memory and catch up on some of the conversations, this (lengthy) post contains slides from our guest speakers, audio from the sessions and links to our written and multimedia coverage throughout the day.
Andrea Iannuzzi, editor of Agenzia Giornali Locali, will discuss new models in local media, and Matt Danzico, founder of BBC Pop Up, will give delegates an insight into online video for the mobile generation.
With only one month to go to news:rewired ‘in focus’, our half-day conference taking an in-depth look at social media newsgathering and verification, we’re delighted to announce more speakers who will be joining our expert line-up on 21 October.
Gavin Rees, the director of Dart Centre Europe, runs workshops and discussion groups on trauma awareness, resilience and interviewing skills for working journalists in a range of countries around the world. Gavin will be joining the ‘Wild West of social media’ panel alongside Aine Kerr, managing editor of Storyful, and Sam Dubberley, co-founder of the Eyewitness Media Hub.
And Mark Frankel, assistant editor, UGC and social news, at the BBC, will lead a practical workshop in the second half of the event, giving us an insight into the BBC’s social media newsgathering process.
The next news:rewired digital journalism conference is taking place on Tuesday 1 December in London, and here at Journalism.co.uk we’ve been busy planning the agenda. Topics we will be discussing at December’s news:rewired include:
The rise of chat apps – Private messaging apps have become a regular feature in the media toolbox, used both to share news with mobile audiences and to source reports. How have media organisations been working with chat apps and what could their future role in news be?
Building in-house tools – Many news outlets have been building their own tools to make everyday newsgathering and storytelling tasks simpler and quicker. But what resources go into this process and what problems are they trying to solve in the first place?
International investigations – A collaborative investigation from a global reporting team can result in major stories sweeping the international media, and December’s news:rewired will take a look at the tools and techniques needed to complete such projects.
Early-bird discounted tickets end this Friday, 4 September.
Social media and mobile devices have irrevocably changed the news landscape, and now members of the public are often at the scene of a news event before a reporter even hears of the story.
Pictures and video posted to social media by eyewitness might be the first sign, but how can journalists and newsrooms reach these sources quickly, reliably and ethically?
The first ‘news:rewired in focus‘ event will take a detailed look at these questions surrounding social media newsgathering and verification, scheduled for Wednesday 21 October at Thomson Reuters in Canary Wharf, London.
Tickets are now available, with the first 50 available at a discounted rate of just £60 +VAT until Friday 28 August, after which prices will rise to £80 +VAT.
