Knight Foundation2,566,750.001--Journalism Grant period: 04/01/2015 - 07/31/2017; goal: To create a multidisciplinary journalism lab in the newsroom of Guardian US to test and adapt news content for mobile consumption using new approaches, and to disseminate metrics and learning. Guardian US will assemble a multidisciplinary editorial and production team that includes designers, developers and reporters and embed it within its news operations. With mobile audiences now accounting for over 50 percent of the Guardian’s daily traffic, the lab will aim to create new and more engaging ways for people to consume news on their mobile devices. Additionally, the lab will explore the challenges faced by journalists in the mobile age and experiment with new ways of bringing stories to life on smaller screens. It will also look at ways of engaging readers in storytelling in real time and at advancing citizen participation in breaking news.
