This summer, ONA led a McCormick Foundation-funded, off- the-record workshop to improve processes for social media use during breaking news events, with the Boston Marathon bombings as a focus. Teams included journalists, social media experts, technologists and designers. We’ll share what we’ve learned and made, and attendees will have a chance to continue the conversation.
This is a partnered day-long workshop with IEEE VisWeek 2013. Participants are encouraged to attend the other two sessions:
- Mobile and Breaking News: New Challenges for News Information Visualizations
- Hackathon: Mobile and Breaking News with Visweek
— This session will have live video
