How Technology Trends Have Influenced the Classroom

How Technology Trends Have Influenced the Classroom | Epistemologies of computational culture | Scoop.it
Teachers all over America are faced with this challenge of keeping students engaged in the classroom when their world outside of school is one of constant engagement and stimulation. Knowing the world outside of our institutional walls is only one step in addressing modern learning styles. How to act and adjust schools today is the next step in making the classroom of today ready for tomorrow.

Fake news: sharing is caring | CCCB LAB

Fake news: sharing is caring | CCCB LAB | Epistemologies of computational culture | Scoop.it
Algorithmic filter bubbles on the Internet limit the diversity of viewpoints we see and make it easier to spread fabricated information.
sandra alvaro's insight:
The US elections showcased post-truth politics. The impact of false news on the results not only demonstrates the social influence of the Internet, it also highlights the misinformation that exists there. The rise of this phenomenon is also closely linked to the role of the social networks as a point of access to the Internet. Face with this situation, the solutions lie in diversifying the control of information, artificial intelligence, and digital literacy.

The rise of social media also means that anyone and everyone can create and share news stories, whether they are true or not. Consumers are bombarded with a wealth of stories with no disclosure of whether the content is real.
