Great idea for editors wanting innovative journalism

Here’s a great idea from Michelle Rogers. A box in the newsroom with coloured strips naming technology tools. Each Friday journalists draw a strip from the box and have to use one of the tools in their work.

This includes ideas like crowd sourcing stories on Twitter or using Storify.

If I was still editing, I’d have my reporters doing this.
