Got Game? The New Frontier for Journalism
Welcome! This presentation was created for NABJ (National Association of Black Journalists), and was originally presented as a webinar in Winter 2010. This was then updated (with the second slide deck) and presented at their 2011 conference. Any questions? Email me: firstname.lastname@example.org
Video Games are an emerging field; as such, there aren’t tons of resources yet available – the paths are still being blazed. However, there is great potential for collaboration. The most coherent resource so far is the Newsgames Project out of Georgia Tech. The project includes a book, blog posts about how news organizations have used games to discuss our world, and some core ideas around playable journalism.
For more information on how to think about video games and education, see my other presentation and resource guide here.
