  4. 4. THE ROAD TO 2020 Technology is intertwined in our lives and old definitions of media are being replaced with algorithms, data, social activation and creative expression across screens. Welcome to 2016 and the road to 2020. 2016 continues the road to 2020 and begins to better define the next decade in news reporting and innovation. These trends are focused around the rapid evolution of media and technology, digital journalism breakthroughs and -- ultimately -- audience behaviors helping to shape a new era of storytelling.

  23. 23. MESSAGING APPS @ToTheVictor @Banjo #LVdigitalworkshop
  24. 24. THE GROWING IMPORTANCE OF MESSAGING APPS In 2015, the number of active users on messaging apps surpassed the number of users on traditional social media channels. As this audience continues to grow, messaging apps will play an increasing role in the distribution strategy of brands and publishers. Some brands have already started to explore this space, leveraging unique features of different messaging applications to experiment with new storytelling methods and community-building. https://medium.com/digital-trends-index/9-digital-trends-to-watch-for-in-2016-25b46f518a5c#.p42l9i5n0 WhatsApp Viber WeChat Snapchat Line

  27. 27. Source: Forbes Tech | May 2015 But, within five years, this ratio is set to drop to around 20 to 1; with an estimated 101 million smartwatch shipments taking place by 2020. The ratio of smartphone shipments, compared to smartwatch ones, currently sits at around 500 to 1. Small-fry indeed.
  28. 28. Smartphone users now glance at their mobile devices more than 100X a day, and with the smartwatch that could become 300 or 500X. Currently there is only limited experience with news on smartwatches — but now smart news orgs and apps are preparing for the possible widespread adoption of Apple Watch. http://meta.watch/blogs/news/15725509-the-power-of-glance-and-ambient-info “IT WILL BECOME VERY ADDICTIVE”

  33. 33. NY TIMES FLIPBOARD YAHOO NEWS DIGEST WASHINGTON POST The Times has developed a new form of storytelling to help readers catch up in seconds. Through its one-sentence stories, crafted especially for the small screen of Apple Watch, users are able to get the news at a glance across many sections from the Times along with photography and short, bulleted summaries. Flipboard algorithmically chooses the top 10 stories based on the top 10 topics a user follows on Flipboard, and then present these dynamically on the Apple Watch. With speed reading, Yahoo News for Apple Watch flashes one word in a sentence before quickly moving to the next word. It helps me read passages more quickly, and is oddly compelling on the tiny screen. “Big Story, Small Screen” design allows users to quickly browse the day’s big story via a customized format highlighting the top story through bold images and brief text, giving readers a way to catch up on the news in six scrolls.

Don’t forget notepad and pens. • Try out new apps at home — not in the field • Get yourself organized! Use folders on your smartphone. • Airplane mode is awesome when shooting (avoid interruptions) • Best to zoom with your feet, not your fingers
  44. 44. VR JOURNALISM @ToTheVictor @Banjo #LVdigitalworkshop
  45. 45. After sending 1 million Google Cardboard headsets to its subscribers in October, The New York Times introduced “The Displaced,” its first NYT VR project. The VR experience gives viewers an unfiltered glimpse inside the lives of three refugee children around the world: an 11-year-old Ukrainian boy named Oleg, a 12-year-old Syrian girl named Hana and a 9-year-old South Sudanese boy named Chuol.

  51. 51. We’re working to get 100 percent of our videos vertical. We find the engagement much higher. Users are more satisfied, and there’s a higher completion rate on them. Jon Steinberg, The Daily Mail http://documentally.com/2016/01/04/landscape-vs-portrait-video/
  52. 52. PERISCOPE BEST PRACTICES Try to stay steady - use a monopod, or tripod if you have Maximize on multitasking - stream, narrate, interview ppl, note usernames Movement is good, listen, interact - provide true experiential! Keep the commentary going - remind frequently what audience is tuned into Remember to save your stream - might want later for B-roll or as video with story
