newsrewired booking information

newsrewired – BOOK HERE is pleased to announce the next newsrewired digital journalism conference will take place on 19 July 2017 at Reuters in Canary Wharf, London.

This will be our 19th conference, and as usual, we're aiming to provide delegates with practical skills and ideas they can take home and explore in their own organisations.

The day will feature a mix of workshops and panel discussions about the latest tools, trends and techniques in digital journalism. 

Here's what we are planning on discussing on the day:

Community and local journalism - how are larger media organisations connecting with their audience on a local level, and what can they learn from community media?

Radio and audio in the age of social media - Can radio go viral, and how can we make audio more engaging online?

App alerts – What's new with the good old push notification, and what are some best practices for engaging with audiences on their home screens? 

Making big things happen on small budgets – Not every media outlet has the resources or the funding to invest in long-term experiments with new technologies, or even to double down on their video or social media strategy. How can smaller teams make it work?

Tickets are available for £180+VAT.

newsrewired+ – BOOK HERE will also be hosting a day of training at Reuters on 20 July 2017.

Delegates can also register for newsrewired+, which will give them access to the conference on 19 July and one of the hands-on workshops the following day.

Newsrewired+ tickets are available for £368 +VAT. They represent a 10 per cent discount compared to booking tickets for both days separately.

Digital storytelling workshop

The internet is a powerful tool in the hands of journalists. With the tools and resources available on DigitalStory.Tools, you’ll explore the new opportunities created by technology and how to use them to tell online stories. In this masterclass, trainer Albertine Piels will show you why and how storytelling in the digital age is different, and you’ll also work on your own story to learn how to tell it in a more engaging way through practical exercises (bring your own story). Albertine is the director of Hackastory. Last year she quit her job as an editor-in-chief at the Dutch national news station RTLZ so she can fully focus on Hackastory. Albertine has 15 years of experience in journalism, always with a strong focus on online media.

360-degree video bootcamp

What is 360 and what is the difference between IR, AR and VR? Who wants 360? Who should have 360? What is the appetite for 360 and what role does it play? What kit do you need? Find out the answer to these questions and learn how to tell a story, guide the audience, edit the pictures and follow a narrative arc, in our 360-degree video bootcamp with Dean Arnett, award-winning, ex-BBC, independent video and documentary producer.

Creating social video

The past two years have seen a dramatic rise in the importance of social video for news organisations - and in jobs for journalists skilled in producing it. Social video drives huge engagement on social channels - and is a vital method of reaching the mobile phone native, whose news flows to them through feeds. No wonder many publishers are making it a major priority in the coming months. However, it’s a very different format to the video we’ve seen (and produced) in the past. It’s less an abbreviated form of TV video and more an evolution upwards of Gifs and other short internet visuals, and that means a whole new set of skills and approaches are needed to make compelling social videos that readers want to watch – and to share. This intensive course in social video is led by Adam Tinworth, a visiting Lecturer at City, University of London, whose students have gone on to lead social video from Mail Online, The LAD Bible and the World Economic Forum.
