Google News Initiative will host training sessions in 30 cities for the upcoming Indian election

Author at TechGenyz Google
Google News Initiative

The latest Google News Initiative aims to equip journalists around India with a training series covering India’s upcoming general election. Google will provide Pan-India training on online news coverage, true-data, digital platform protection, YouTube usage, and public planning.

In fact, since 2016 Google has trained at least 13,000 media workers in India. This year, more than 10 thousand journalists are going to do specialized training for the world’s largest search giant.

With three months to go for India’s general elections, Google takes up the initiative to host across 30 cities in the next couple of months. The training named ‘PollCheck: Covering India’s Elections’ will be conducted in various languages such as English, Hindi, Malayalam, Bengali, Kannada, Gujarati, Odia, Tamil, Telugu, Marathi.

Last year, to support trusted and authoritative journalism, Google had launched the Google News Initiative India Training Network, focused on online verification and fact-checking. The initiative of Google News Training Network was to train journalists from across the country to support their fight against misinformation. As per reports, Google plans to impart training to 8,000 journalists across English and six other Indian languages over the coming year.

For now, Google plans to train another 10K journalists in 2019. Those of you interested can definitely opt for it.
