ONA study to examine digital use among journalists and educators

The Online News Association asks you to take this quick survey, estimated to take about 10 minutes, that will allow your level of online involvement and use of technology to be compared to journalists of all levels of experience and from all media traditions, journalism educators and the general U.S. populace.

Data collected in this pilot study will be contrasted with recent results from the Pew Internet and American Life Project. The findings will be announced and discussed at the ONA’s annual conference, Oct. 6-7, at the Capital Hilton in Washington. This study is conducted by the ONA, with support from Pew and the USC Annenberg Center for the Digital Future. The study has been extended through Sept. 22.
