Event description

Description

Think Google is just a search engine? Attend this training session and learn specialized Google tools you can use to collect, compile and meaningfully report information. This three-hour training is free and will include mid-afternoon refreshments.

SPJ and the Google News Lab teamed up in 2015 to provide training and outreach to journalists around the U.S. looking to apply Google tools in their news gathering, reporting and storytelling. Select SPJ members have been trained by the Google News Lab to provide training.

Our presenter will be Sandra Gonzalez (@SandraGonzalez2), a veteran multimedia journalist based in Houston. Gonzalez has been reporting news for more than 20 years in both TV and radio, many of those years in Dallas/Fort Worth, and New Orleans. She interviewed civil rights activist Cesar Chavez early in her career; later covered the tragic kidnapping and murder of the child Amber Hagerman whose name is now known around the world through the Amber alert. In New Orleans, Sandra also reported on the recovery efforts following Hurricane Katrina and the environmental disaster of the BP oil spill. Sandra is active member of both the Society of Professional Journalists and the National Association of Hispanic Journalists.
