Walck, Pamela E.; Cruikshank, Sally Ann; Kalyango, Yusuf, Jr.
Journalism and Mass Communication Educator, v70 n3 p235-250 Sep 2015
Despite the proliferation of mobile devices, there is limited awareness of how journalism students are prepared for the evolving nature of the workplace in regard to mobile devices and how journalism professionals utilize this technology in daily routines. This study examines how journalism educators, students, and practitioners embrace the proliferation of rapidly growing mobile technologies in the United States. The study finds that challenges lie ahead for both journalism professionals and scholars as media ecology expands current capabilities and redefines work routines, from funding technologies and gauging ways audiences use new technologies to selecting hardware and software that make reporting relevant.
