#Tip of the day from Journalism.co.uk – using newsgames in journalism

The topic of how newsgames could be used to enhance journalism is one which is becoming more widely discussed in the industry, and formed one of the debates at news:rewired – media in motion earlier this month.

In this post from the event, doctoral student at the Georgia Institute of Technology and co-author of Newsgames: Journalism at Play, Bobby Schweizer, outlines seven different styles a newsgame could effectively take, e.g. a puzzle, an infographic or a tool to teach literacy.

He also explains eight uses of newsgames which could be of interest to newsrooms, by helping give users a direct experience of the story and enhance awareness of related issues.

We also previously produced a podcast on newsgames which can still be listened to here.
