The New Rules of Social Journalism: The Curators and More

The New Rules of Social Journalism: The Curators and More | Social Media, Blogging, Writing & Marketing! | Scoop.it

Interesting excerpt for my topic from the article by PandoDaily:
"Is all social platform content inherently untrustworthy or is it possible to elevate it with journalism’s standards of higher quality and ethics?

We know that traditional methods of screening – e.g. professional editors directly supervising every piece of content – aren’t going to work. Social sites generate too much content for that.

Before despairing the conflict is irresolvable, I’d point out that even some professional journalists rely heavily on Wikipedia, perhaps the best example of generally high-quality crowd-sourced content.

The fact is, there are ways to improve the quality, and reliability of social journalism.
Here are a bunch of practical suggestions about how to bring journalistic ethos to the new hybrid models.

- Label contributors prominently. E.g. Staff Writer. Staff Columnist. Staff Curator. Expert Contributor, Expert Curator, Guest contributor. Reader Contribution. Clue in the audience who’s who.

- Publish staff, contributor and reader credentials as part of a profile linked to all their bylines. I recommend LinkedIn style profiles, with links to articles written for the site or anyone else. Let the audience have plenty of information to decide if a contributor is trustworthy.

- Signing up a guest or expert contributor is a tacit endorsement.

- Business publication, in particular, should consider mandating that contributors take formal online ethics training.

- Getting featured on a content channel should require a curator’s approval (paid professionals or expert volunteers), rather than automated inclusion based on subject matter or pre-approval of the author.

- Unlike social networks, consider only allowing users to follow curated channels, not individual posters.

- Consistently highly-scoring content contributors (including staff) should be labeled as such, so they can gain a reputation as being trustworthy.

- If content has been rejected by curators, or not socially shared, or has poor engagement time and few up votes, screen it for deletion. Provide feedback to contributors facing deletion. Social journalism is not just about increasing the amount of content. It’s about increasing quality of information..."

The article is very long and there also is a first part that I didn't mention here.
In addition, there are more information and other suggestions by author. Read interesting original article here:

Baby Shower – The Bump! - Care Corner

Baby Shower – The Bump!  - Care Corner | Social Media, Blogging, Writing & Marketing! | Scoop.it
Care Corner - I haven’t experienced any other celebration as special as a “Baby Shower”. It is a special celebration for a mom to-be.  Of course it’s all kept a secret until the day of celebration. Baby Showers can be arranged at any time, though it is mostly held in the third trimester.   It’s a day when the expectant mum would be showered with love and blessings.  The celebration is all about “her”.

Tools and Best Advice on Verifying Content in Breaking News: The Verification Handbook

The Verification Handbook, released two months ago by the European Journalism Centre, features tools and advice on verifying content in breaking news situations.

From book intro:
"The Verification Handbook is a groundbreaking new resource for journalists and aid responders, which provides step-by-step guidelines for using user-generated content (UGC) during emergencies.

In a crisis situation, social networks are overloaded with situational updates, calls for relief, reports of new developments, and rescue information. Reporting the right information is often critical in shaping responses from the public and relief workers; it can literally be a matter of life or death.

The Handbook prescribes best practice advice on how to verify and use this information provided by the crowd, as well as actionable advice to facilitate disaster preparedness in newsrooms.

While it primarily targets journalists and aid providers, the Handbook can be used by anyone. It’s advice and guidance are valuable whether you are a news journalist, citizen reporter, relief responder, volunteer, journalism school student, emergency communication specialist, or an academic researching social media."

Index (I only mention the chapters here):

Chapter 1: When Emergency News BreaksChapter 2: Verification Fundaments: Rules to Live ByChapter 3: Verifying User-Generated ContentChapter 4: Verifying ImagesChapter 5: Verifying VideoChapter 6: Putting the Human Crowd to WorkChapter 7: Adding the Computer Crowd to the Human CrowdChapter 8: Preparing for Disaster CoverageChapter 9: Creating a Verification Process and Checklist(s)Chapter 10: Verification Tools


Editors of the Handbook:
Editor: Craig Silverman, The Poynter Institute
Copyeditor: Merrill Perlman, the American Copy Editors Society (ACES)

Each chapter is analyzed with information, tips and many case studies.
PDF version, 112 pages. A Must download and read!

Google provides so many tools it is hard to keep track of all of them. This post provides information on 7 tools that may find a place in your classroom. 
Would you like to provide audio feedback to your students, or have peers provide audio feedback? If you are using Google Drive this is possible.

Do you have a student that needs a clean and clear space to write, with no distractions? If Chrome is available as a browser consider installing the app Write Space, a "minimalist text editor."

If students are working in Google Drive and are researching a paper they may have found the Research Tool that allows you to quickly search the web for specific information, make suggestions and more.

Google Forms continues to add features, including the ability to create surveys. Have your students design a survey and graph their data, or use it the survey tool to do a quick formative assessment as an exit ticket.

Learn more about Moderator, Image Directory, and Google Templates (that's right, Google has templates designed for students and teachers) in the post. Chances are you will find at least one or two tools to use for yourself or with your students (or both)!
