Case Study: Data Journalism
The “data journalist” gathers, interviews and presents data”. As such, it needs a suite of new skills around understanding and interpreting data. The journalism arm of the industry training organisation, Competenz, in New Zealand, has recognised this and begun the process of implementing new NZQA unit standards for journalism schools. The initial focus is on up-skilling students in statistics. This case study explores real issues related to developing a governmental or organizational ICT integration plan using open data.
