Sensor Journalism Series hosted by the OKCast and Sensor Journalism Lab
Some exciting news! There’s going to be a webinar series on sensor journalism starting in March 2015. This is a new experiment for us at the OKCast, using a more collaborative, community-building approach to our coverage.
We’ve invited speakers who are practitioners, educators, developers, experimenters, and supporters of sensor journalism to share and discuss their work and participate in a Q&A. We hope to expand on existing research on sensor journalism, as captured by the Tow Center for Digital Journalism’s Sensors & Journalism report, along with best practices, as learned through experience and experiment (e.g. DustDuino, the Open Water Project). Everyone’s invited — including you!
All the sessions will be archived and hosted on the OKCast website in an effort to build a working knowledge base for sensor journalism beyond informal discussions and meetings on and offline.
