Google set to train Nigerian Journalists

The Communication and Public Affairs Manager, Google Anglophone West Africa, Taiwo Kola-Ogunlade, on Thursday said that the organisation has concluded arrangements to train Nigerian journalists on data journalism in 2013.

“This year’s training is aimed at helping Nigerian journalists to understand how to use online data journalism tools that would help them develop more data-driven news.”
He said the training will focus specifically on using Google fusion tables, Google forms and Spreadsheet, Advanced Search 2.0 application, Google Earth Maps and Crowd Sourcing with the Social Media, to enhance news gathering by journalists.
