LIVE: Session 3A – Newsgames

Incorporating gaming mechanics into the storytelling process is a good way to engage readers and help them to understand a news event. This session will hear from experts in this field on how newsrooms can use gaming mechanics, from a basic level – open to those with a limited time and budget – to more advanced video-game styles. The speakers will discuss what type of stories this format is best suited to.

With: Bobby Schweizer, doctoral student at the Georgia Institute of Technology and co-author of Newsgames: journalism at play; Shannon Perkins, editor of interactive technologies, Wired.com; Al Trivino, director of innovation at News International; and Alastair Dant, interactive lead at the Guardian.
