Controversy Over Curated News Attribution and Crediting Makes Poynter's Romenesko Resign

Controversy Over Curated News Attribution and Crediting Makes Poynter's Romenesko Resign | EdD etc. | Scoop.it
Jim Romenesko is leaving his post at the Poynter Institute earlier than expected amid controversy over whether or not he provided “incomplete attribution” during his 12 years of aggregating media industry news.

 

From the article:  "For most of the past few years, Romenesko often aggregated news by including a headline (usually his own) that was linked to the original source. He would then include a brief paragraph either summarizing the main point or, in many cases, just using some lines from the story he was linking to.

 

A look at dozens of reactions on Twitter showed that journalists didn’t mind Romenesko’s lifting of a sentence or two; in fact, most media news reporters and bloggers considered a mention by Romenesko to be an honor.

In any case, the familiarity that journalists had with Romenesko’s style of attribution and aggregation meant that they understood he sometimes used verbatim sentences without directly saying he was doing so.

Considering that Romenesko included a link within the headline, some felt that he had gone far enough in giving credit where it was due.

 

...considering the development of partially-automated aggregation engines like Techmeme and Mediagazer over the years—not to mention the proliferation of media industry news blogs—there needs to be clearer standards of what is an acceptable, honest, clear and fair way to attribute others’ work.

Why aren’t more students using e-books? | EdD etc. | Scoop.it

"Though we keep hearing about a huge increase in sales of e-books, a recent survey shows that, for students, that needle has not really moved much.

The library e-book provider eBrary released some of the preliminary results from its 2011 Global Student E-Book Survey last week. Among its findings: that students’ e-book usage has not increased significantly in the past 3 years."

MediaShift . Teaching Without Technology? | PBS | EdD etc. | Scoop.it

New technology is a lightning rod and polarizing force because, as Nicholas Carr articulated in his book, "The Shallows: What the Internet is Doing to Our Brains," it not only begins to influence what we see and how we see it, but, over time, who we are.

It makes sense then, that debate of digital technology's role in society is naturally being played out in microcosmic form within schools. Education is designed to transmit a culture's history, values and theories of knowledge while also preparing students for the world of tomorrow. Yet, in times like ours, when the gulf between the past and future stretches light years, cognitive dissonance ensues when students, teachers and parents try to figure out what technology should be used to bridge this timeline.

Webinar: Blended Learning Strategies for K-12 Leaders

This event will be launched on November 17, 2011 at 2 p.m. ET.
According to a recent study by Ambient Insight, the growth of blended learning will be immense in the next 4 years. Schools and districts across the country are incorporating blended learning across a continuum of models: from having fully online components of courses such as labs or help sessions to posting online resources that support the instruction that occurs entirely in a face-to-face setting. In this webinar, hear from three district leaders who have successfully implemented blended learning programs about how they set up an online learning program that worked for their administration and teachers, and helped their students achieve results.
