As we preach at Mindset, there are many ways to tell a story, and you need to pick the right format for each medium and message.
We have spent the past few months working with the Columbus Education Commission, which was commissioned to chart a better future for children in our community.
Our role on the team was to engage and inform the community through the Reimagine Columbus Education website and the @ReimagineCbusEd Twitter account. We loved the opportunity to help the commission connect with so many residents and community groups.
The commission’s final recommendations are presented in an in-depth report called FutureReady Columbus (it’s posted on the website). But the commission also wanted an infographic to share the highlights in a visual style that works on the web.
We’re proud of the result, which is both informative and easy to read. The entire infographic is on the Reimagine website, but we’ve posted a slideshow here that breaks it into chapters.
Debra and Betsy look forward to talking Twitter and other up and coming digital platforms with the Schibsted Academy of Journalism today. We’ve put together a recap of the resources, campaigns and tools which we’ll be discussing in the sessions.
The Mindset Digital team was thrilled to be back in Bergen, Norway, for the Nordic Media Festival this week.
And it was great being part of the backchannel, which was active in both Norwegian and English.
UPDATED FRIDAY: In all, 849 Twitter users tweeted at the #NMD13 hashtag from Wednesday through Friday, generating 2,605 tweets. And together, all of those people were connected to 1.3 million Twitter users. (These numbers are through 5 p.m. Friday, Bergen time.)
That reach reflects the real power of social media — to connect large groups of people around a subject. It’s why we say that Twitter has such promise as a tool for journalists. Whether you’re looking for sources or trying to make sure your story is spread widely, social media can be a great tool.
Thanks for joining us for today’s “New Realities” talk at the Nordic Media Festival. Debra and Betsy enjoyed speaking to everyone about the major communications shifts affecting today’s world.
