atmospheric ways.


Data, data everywhere.

Radical Curriculum Proposal


Flip the curriculum. Teach digital, integrate traditional skills.


Curriculum must include:


Programming concepts


Web design and development


Mobile Development


Data and data visualization


Programming for content

management systems


Radical Curriculum Proposal


Journalism is a specialized used of many fields


Computer Science ≠ Web Development


Design is a key element in being able to communicate
effectively


Data, data, data


Knowledge of statistics

also important


Need for different

teaching methods


Reach different audiences


Rise of learn
-
to
-
code movement


Jobs for people with these skills!!!


Radical Curriculum Proposal


If we don’t move aggressively and efficiently toward this:


Journalism curricula will increasingly grow irrelevant


Someone else
-

another department, organization


is
going to fill that space


Students won’t have the 21
st

century communication
skills they need to be successful in their careers


Communication is two
-
way
-

connecting and sharing.
And providing meaning to data and information. This
needs to be the foundation of any media curriculum.
