Journalists need to learn the language of technology or they risk further eroding their own economic value. While the economic crisis during the second half of the 2000s shocked many news media companies into taking digital products seriously, they are doing so in an increasingly networked and mobile media landscape in which it is device makers and software developers—not media companies—that control audiences and revenues. This paper posits that developing procedural literacies might help journalists close the gap between information technology and traditional journalism and in doing so, allow them to regain some control over their craft. It examines the literature surrounding these fields and seeks to identify challenges to introducing computer science skills to traditional journalism education.
