Strand Two: Digital Tools for Journalism
These days all journalists are digital journalists to some extent. However, there may be tools, techniques, and online platforms that will help make your research and fact-checking quicker, simpler and more effective, leaving you more time to get out of the office and speak to people, or to write up your findings into a compelling narrative.
This session will signpost a huge range of tools to help you search the internet more effectively, find eyewitnesses and potential sources, and follow the digital trails of fraudsters and criminals.
