SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 29, 2020
10:30AM – 12:30PM
COVID-19 has been the center of media attention for the past month. However, misinformation surrounding the disease can also spread as fast as the SARS-CoV-2 virus itself. To report on stories more accurately, learn how to verify information for stories using Google Advanced Search Tools. In this digital journalism workshop by AAJA-Asia Training Network trainer, Mike Raomanachai, you’ll find out more about the tools to analyse, verify, and geolocate sources or visual information. After a brief introduction on disinformation, the workshop will cover:
a. search tools for source verification
b. map tools and geolocation, and
c. photo and video forensics.
* Topics may change due to available time and audience composition.
