Google Cardboard and similar devices have been around for a few years now, and headsets like the Oculus Rift, Sony Playstation VR and HTC Vive have recently hit the market. Newsrooms are producing groundbreaking creative pieces, ensuring that journalism is represented in this emerging medium. We’ll learn best practices from Journalism 360 ambassadors. Journalism 360 is a collaborative initiative to accelerate immersive storytelling from ONA, Google and the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation.
