I was recently inspired by Alex Roe's recent discussion
on journalist/editor tech skills. This is a topic I would definitely like to know some more about.
I'd like to devise a survey to assess journalists' digital knowledge, and what's more I'd like this process to be collaborative.
The main areas I think need querying on include:
- Social media
- Social networks
- Website development and design
- Content Management Systems
- Search engine optimised marketing
- Buzzwords (i.e. current hot tools etc)
I would suggest the survey lists say 10 tools/networks/platforms/coding languages/etc in each of the above sections, with respondents ranking each on:
- Their technical ability
- How often they use it
Other info to ask for might include:
- Job title (select from a list)
I'd really appreciate feedback on this, general and specific ways to improve, etc. Maybe a shared Google doc would be a good way to do this?
Thanks, and looking forward to your thoughts,
