    This session will equip you with practical research tips with case studies and examples from across Europe. We’ll highlight the basic tools to help you verify social media content across Google. We'll point to data journalism tools that can help you research and visualise your ideas, including a deep dive on how Google Trends can compliment your storytelling. Immerse yourself in virtual reality, explore 360 degree video and see how publishers from around the world are using cutting edge technology (and on a budget). From a breaking news situation to a feature length article - learn how Google Maps and Earth Pro images can complement social media posts or add a visual element to your articles. You'll dive into storytelling with Maps, find examples with StreetView and discover tools where audio brings panoramic images to life.

    *Please note that this workshop is at no cost to all Summit participants; however, registration is required as space is limited. This is on a first-come, first-served basis.
