Esta eclosión de la conectividad, esta nueva manera de relacionarse y de tratar la información, ha llevado a considerar a algunos pensadores, entre los que se encuentra el periodista Román Cendoya autor del libro 'rEvolución: del Homo sapiens al Homo digitalis', que los humanos que habitamos actualmente este pequeño planeta somos los últimos Homo sapiens pues estamos siendo sustituidos por una nueva especie del género homo: el 'Homo digitalis'.

Digital Natives, Yet Strangers to the Web

Digital Natives, Yet Strangers to the Web | Educommunication | Scoop.it
Today's schools are focusing on boosting kids’ technological proficiency and warning them about the perils of the web. But something critical is missing from this education

"When Reuben Loewy took up his first teaching gig in 2012, he had a major revelation: The digital revolution has dramatically transformed the way that kids perceive reality.

Perhaps that makes the 55-year-old teacher sound like a dinosaur. What he discovered is, after all, one of the most obvious realities shaping education policy and parenting guides today. But, as Loewy will clarify, his revelation wasn’t simply that technology is overhauling America’s classrooms and redefining childhood and adolescence. Rather, he was hit with the epiphany that efforts in schools to embrace these shifts are, by and large, focusing on the wrong objectives: equipping kids with fancy gadgets and then making sure the students use those gadgets appropriately and effectively. "

YES!!! Kids are comfortable with technology but often astonishingly clueless about its capabilities and functionality beyond their favorite apps, games, or programs. Savvy they aren't.

Hey, Kids, Look at Me When We’re Talking | Educommunication | Scoop.it
A few years ago, I was having drinks one night with Clifford Nass, a restlessly creative communication professor at Stanford University who had a reputation for out-of-the box thinking. Dr. Nass told me about research he was doing that suggested young people were spending so much time looking into screens that they were losing the ability to read nonverbal communications and learn other skills necessary for one-on-one interactions.

10 Great Role Models for Boys

10 Great Role Models for Boys | Educommunication | Scoop.it

"

Let's play fill in the blank: "You swing like a g---"; "Boys don't c--"; "Be a m--." If you think it's easy to guess the answers, imagine how boys feel. From chisel-chested action stars to scorched-earth video game heroes to tough-talking TV guys, the media's images, characters, and messages are loud and clear: to be a man, you must be intimidating, stoic, and domineering.

These cultural stereotypes are not only dated, they're not true. And they can limit boys from developing their full potential as sensitive, nurturing, and authentic human beings.

But new role models are emerging, in both traditional and new media. "

This research, where participates 521 spanish university students, has rediscovered gratification by individual access to the sound and reveals the main role that laptop and mobile phones play in an environment of, that in here is called the digital sonosphere, in which radio music prevails over any other audio content.

Friending vs Following

Friending vs Following | Educommunication | Scoop.it

"With “friending” as on LinkedIn, Facebook you are establishing a fact. You say “we’ve met in the past and want to be formally connected in case of something useful happening in the future”. On LinkedIn, this means the people you connect with can help you in finding a reference, a job, a new employee, etc. On Facebook it means something your friend does may show up in your news feed if relevant and you are ok with them seeing what you share.

But “following” is a very different action. When you follow someone or something, you are effectively saying “I’d like to hear what you have to say tomorrow”. This is powerful. Very different than friending — it means I’m inviting you into my world."
