How The World Changed Social Media

How The World Changed Social Media | Educommunication | Scoop.it
"How the World Changed Social Media is the first book in Why We Post, a book series that investigates the findings of anthropologists who each spent 15 months living in communities across the world. This book offers a comparative analysis summarising the results of the research and explores the impact of social media on politics and gender, education and commerce. What is the result of the increased emphasis on visual communication? Are we becoming more individual or more social? Why is public social media so conservative? Why does equality online fail to shift inequality offline? How did memes become the moral police of the internet?"

In the age of robots, our schools are teaching children to be redundant | George Monbiot

In the age of robots, our schools are teaching children to be redundant | George Monbiot | Educommunication | Scoop.it

"A regime of cramming and testing is crushing young people’s instinct to learn and destroying their future".


"In the future, if you want a job, you must be as unlike a machine as possible: creative, critical and socially skilled. So why are children being taught to behave like machines? Children learn best when teaching aligns with their natural exuberance, energy and curiosity. So why are they dragooned into rows and made to sit still while they are stuffed with facts?"

4 factors that influence people’s attitudes toward facts

4 factors that influence people’s attitudes toward facts | Educommunication | Scoop.it
The simple but frustrating truth is that facts alone are not enough to provide context and clarity for your audience. Even the most thorough, accurate piece of reporting might still be trumped by a poorly reasoned and false counterargument.

Decades of research into the way humans process information and deal with misinformation and propaganda show that people are more inclined to believe things that are in line with their existing views — even if proven truth contradicts their beliefs.

Here are some factors that make it difficult to convince people of facts.

Comment la fiction influence les enfants | Educommunication | Scoop.it

"Pourquoi les petites filles sont-elles attirées par telles couleurs, tels jouets ou telles histoires ? Comment se fait-il qu’elles préfèrent souvent s’habiller en rose et jouer les princesses, tandis que les garçons s’identifient plutôt à Dark Vador, à de farouches guerriers ou à des astronautes ? En réalité, les histoires que nous leur racontons peuvent faire toute la différence."

From Prosumer to Prodesigner: Participatory News Consumption

"New democratic participation forms and collaborative productions of diverse audiences have emerged as a result of digital inno-vations in the online access to and consumption of news. The aim of this paper is to propose a conceptual framework based onthe possibilities of Web 2.0. Outlining the construction of a “social logic”, which combines computer and communicative logics,the conceptual framework is theoretically built to explore the evolution of news consumption from a pure circulation of designedproducts towards a global conversation of proactive news designers. Then, the framework was tested using an empirical databasebuilt by the P EW Research Centre, which investigates the future of the news industry, through a large-scale survey with adults.Results show significant differences (by age, gender and educational level) in the forms of participation, access and consumptionof news. However, whilst immersed in the culture of Web 2.0 there is a low-level of user participation in news production; far from being proactive news designers, findings suggest that citizens are still located in the lower participatory levels of our concep-tual framework. Conclusions suggest there is a need for media education providers to carry out training initiatives according tothe social logic possibilities through proposed guidelines".

L'éducation aux médias pour les adolescents dans le secondaire | Educommunication | Scoop.it

"Il s’agit de jeunes adolescents ayant de 15 à 20 ans, scolarisés dans une école secondaire bruxelloise. J’ai pu les observer en milieu scolaire et quelques-uns à l’extérieur de l’établissement. Ce sont des jeunes faisant face à toutes sortes de difficultés (familiales,financières,…). La plupart d’entre eux souffre de troubles de comportements et pour certains la langue maternelle n’est pas le français. L’école accueille,également, des primo-arrivants. Tous ces facteurs favorise le décrochage scolaire, fortement présent dans l’institution et que l’équipe éducative tente de gérer le plus possible."

Teaching in a "Post-Truth" World: Do Teachers and Students Need More Training in Media Literacy?

Teaching in a "Post-Truth" World: Do Teachers and Students Need More Training in Media Literacy? | Educommunication | Scoop.it
So what does it mean to be living in the era of post-truth? For starters, it means more responsibility on the shoulders of people who make use of media (i.e., everyone). First, as consumers of media content, individuals have a new responsibility to sort reliable information and credible sources from the questionable, the unreliable and the downright false information that may be masked as news for their consumption. Second, as producers of media in online spaces — whether through posting of tweets, blogs, photos or Facebook entries — individuals have a new responsibility to consider the impact of the content that they create or sponsor.

Fighting fake news: Lancaster's schools and colleges focus on media literacy

Fighting fake news: Lancaster's schools and colleges focus on media literacy | Educommunication | Scoop.it
During the recent presidential campaign, the librarians at Franklin & Marshall College felt a need to talk with students about information literacy.

By the time they held a workshop on the subject last month — in the wake of the Pizzagate episode and the attention on “alternative facts” — they believed it was needed more than ever.

During the workshop, held over a lunch break, students and professors talked about subjects like how to determine a news source is credible and the best way of telling someone they’re sharing fake news.

“It’s really about being an engaged and informed citizen,” says Meghan Kelly, research and emerging technologies librarian at F&M. “Democracy doesn’t function without informed citizens.”

UNESCO launch Five Laws of Media and Information Literacy

UNESCO launch Five Laws of Media and Information Literacy | Educommunication | Scoop.it
UNESCO (United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organisation) have launched their Five Laws of Media and Information Literacy. Their strategy aims to being together the fields of information literacy and media literacy into a combined set of knowledge, skills and attitudes required for living and working in the 21st century.

Media and Information Literacy recognizes the primary role of information and media in our everyday lives. It lies at the core of freedom of expression and information – since it empowers citizens to understand the functions of media and other information providers, to critically evaluate their content, and to make informed decisions as users and producer of information and media content.

Media Literacy Now launches next phase of media literacy campaign with model bill and new national coalition partners

Media Literacy Now launches next phase of media literacy campaign with model bill and new national coalition partners | Educommunication | Scoop.it
I’m excited to announce that Media Literacy Now is taking a major step forward to ensure all students will have an opportunity to acquire the media literacy skills they need to be good digital citizens in the information age. This year we’re rolling out a new model bill that puts Media Literacy and Digital Citizenship together on legislative desks around the country.

Media Literacy Now developed the model bill in partnership with Common Sense Kids Action, The National Association for Media Literacy Education and the Digital Citizenship Institute. We are seeking state legislative sponsors to introduce the bill state by state for the coming legislative session, beginning in many states in January. The bill is based on the successful Washington bill passed earlier this year through the leadership of Claire Beach, president of Action for Media Education, with guidance and resources from Media Literacy Now.

Media Literacy Education: Do we have to?

Media Literacy Education: Do we have to? | Educommunication | Scoop.it

"As teachers we are in a constant dilemma of how to best use our time in the classroom. We must deliver a curriculum that excites, engages and meets the needs of our diverse students whilst simultaneously linking it to national requirements and assessments. The dilemma of what we include is continuous and not for the fainthearted. We often fight to priortise key learning areas and somehow manage to skim the surface of other learning areas. Some we barely do justice to. Lets face it, the fight is real. It exists beyond you as an individual teacher and school. In fact, research illustrates that this happens internationally across the teaching profession. Teachers grapple to remain true to the learning areas and competencies they hold so dear, the areas they know develop the whole child while juggling the increasing demands of National Standards, which require us to document, collect, assess, annotate on a seemingly endless basis."

Want to resist the post-truth age? Learn to analyze photos like an expert would | Educommunication | Scoop.it

"“When photography was invented,” photo historian Vicki Goldberg once said, “it was thought to be an equivalent to truth. It was truth with a capital T.” But as viewers quickly learned, seeing isn’t always believing. Even in the early history of photography, hoaxes like the Cottingley fairies taught people to question the validity of the images they saw. Today, we’re well aware that photos can be digitally altered—which means that the public trusts the authority of photos, including journalistic images, a whole lot less."
