From the archives: Teaching technology and design

We are sharing resources from the ONA archives throughout 2019, as we celebrate 20 years of inspiring innovation in journalism.

The Playful Tech in the J-School Classroom session at ONA17 offered inspiration to engage journalism students in technical, interactive projects with virtual reality, mobile games and news apps. Resources shared include a roundup of tips for gamification and teaching inclusive design, as well as example projects.
