Flash, Java, Widgets, oh my!
We see news organizations using these formats over and over to help tell stories. In some cases, a plain HTML table will do the trick, like in Terry Pluto’s column for the Cleveland Plain Dealer about the terrible season the Cavs are having.
Take a look at this example and then in the comments field of this post, write a short response that includes a link to another news story that effectively used a basic HTML or text table as a visual aid.
Answer these questions:
- What kind of a story was it?
- How did a table of data add to your understanding of the story?
- Where did the data come from?
- What might you have done differently?
