In conjunction with both the Society of Professional Journalists and the National Association of Black Journalists (NABJ), Google is proud to present “Google 101 for Journalists: Getting the Most from the Web.” This event will be from 6 to 8 p.m., Wednesday, Feb. 17, at Lucas Park Grille at 1234 Washington Ave in St Louis.
Every day, millions of people around the world use Google’s search engine to find what they’re looking for. Editors, journalists, producers and others in the media have long known just how essential it is to be able to find and use information efficiently and effectively, and this Google 101 introduction, taught by Google staff members, demonstrates ways to work more efficiently and effectively on the web.
Learn how to get the most from Search and other free tools from Google. Whether you’re in broadcast, print or digital journalism, this session will introduce ways you can search smarter, keep better tabs on your beat, see what’s hot and what’s not, add a visual edge to your online content, and use Google on the go when you’re reporting in the field. Walk away with tips and tricks and an online resource for Google Search, Hot Trends, Insights, Reader, News, Maps, and more. Light refreshments will be provided.
