Kjetil Vaage Øie: Teaching Location Sensitivity in Locative Journalism

Kjetil Vaage Øie at the Volda University College, who has worked together with Solveig Bjørnestad and Lars Nyre, gives details of how the Loka project was used by a test group of 89 students. About 220 texts x 3 versions were produced. The students quickly learned to cope with the technology, addressing location was not a problem, but they did not particularly like, or were not used to, this type of journalism.
