"Average Mohamed" project: "was set up to talk plainly to Humanity" [stories, curriculum, resources] | Educommunication | Scoop.it

"AverageMohamed.com was set up to talk plainly to Humanity. The issue of extremism is one that directly affects us all. I have waited for a constructive logical argument that can reach average people. It has dawned on me that it will take an average guy. It is an average guy who turns average people into extremists. It will take all of us average people to tell them other wise. My mission is simply create a counter ideology with your help and input. Give average parents who deal with their average kids and clergy talking points that can help with theological or even logical talking points countering falsehood propagated by extremists. I live happily in the greatest place a person can call home, amongst a people who cherish peace and offer people like me unparralled oportunity to achieve as much as I want to. It is in their name and that of my children and the right to free speech I do this."

Digital media: There's a dramatic gap between advice and practice

Digital media: There's a dramatic gap between advice and practice | Educommunication | Scoop.it
All parents, to varying degrees, worry about how to balance between the risks and opportunities presented by digital media. Some voice concerns about how to manage their children’s ‘screen time,’ to keep them safe and to minimise conflict. Others are more confident of the benefits to their children and also for their families, investing (sometimes heavily) in technology to enjoy, learn and connect – separately and together. In our research project Parenting for a Digital Future we have interviewed families who represent this spectrum and beyond.

Comment j’ai redécouvert ma ville grâce à Pokémon Go

Comment j’ai redécouvert ma ville grâce à Pokémon Go | Educommunication | Scoop.it

"Le lancement du jeu de réalité augmentée Pokémon Go est un succès retentissant pour Nintendo comme pour Niantic, la société qui l’a développé. C’est peut-être même le jeu pour smartphone le plus populaire des États-Unis, avec un nombre d’utilisateurs quotidien qui dépasse parfois Twitter, Facebook et Tinder. Pourtant, l’une de ses fonctionnalités les plus intéressantes est invisible. Le but de cette franchise du jeu Pokémon pour Game Boy – sorti il y a 20 ans – consiste à se balader dans le monde réel en quête de Pokémon « sauvages » générés par l’application. En activant l’appareil photo de son smartphone, le joueur voit apparaître des Pokémon dans des espaces bien réels, qu’il doit à la fois trouver et capturer."

The Guide to Pinterest for Educators

The Guide to Pinterest for Educators | Educommunication | Scoop.it
Over 500,000 education-related pins are saved to Pinterest every day. That number is expected to grow with the launch of Teachers on Pinterest — a collaborative effort between Pinterest, education experts such as Edutopia, and a collection of teacher bloggers. The platform's creation of their own education-focused Pinterest community demonstrates the value and power of using this tool in the classroom.

Recognizing that power, we've teamed up with noted author and education expert Leah Anne Levy to create The Guide to Pinterest for Educators — a handbook designed with today's digitally literate educators in mind. This handbook provides teachers and administrators with the tools needed to not only navigate Pinterest, but also to use the social platform as a powerful learning tool for both teachers and students.

Exploring News Literacy: Preparing future journalists— and citizens—for engagement in global digital culture.

Exploring News Literacy: Preparing future journalists— and citizens—for engagement in global digital culture. | Educommunication | Scoop.it

"In September of 2014 in Chicago, the Poynter Institute in partnership with the McCormick Foundation, brought together more than 100 participants for a News Literacy Summit, where researchers, educators, practitioners and funders gathered to set the course of practice, pedagogy and research in news literacy.  e summit highlighted some cutting edge work being done in classrooms, in com-munitiesi and in universities. Central to these conversations were best practices for teach-ing future journalists—and citizens—about critical engagement in the news landscape in contemporary digital culture. Scholars at this gathering presented fi ndings from research exploring where news literacy exists, how it’s taught and evaluated, and how new technolo-gies are impacting the ecosystem for news."

Cyberbullying: competencia social, motivación y relaciones entre iguales

Cyberbullying: competencia social, motivación y relaciones entre iguales | Educommunication | Scoop.it

"El reconocimiento de cierto solapamiento entre el acoso cara a cara (bullying) y el ciberacoso (cyberbullying) puede indicar que variables de cognición social, cuya influencia ha sido reconocida en el bullying, también están presentes en el acoso cibernético.El objetivo de la investigación fue estudiar el ajuste social de los implicados en cyberbullying y analizar las diferencias en la percepción de la competencia social, la motivación y el apoyo de los iguales, entre víctimas, agresores y agresores victimizados del cyberbullying. Un total de 505 adolescentes (47,3% chicas) con edades comprendidas entre los 12 y 16 años (M=13.95;DT=1.42) participaron en el estudio. Se utilizaron instrumentos para adolescentes validados en español y se analizaron las propiedades psicométricas para la adaptación de la escala de competencia social. Análisis factoriales exploratorios y confirmatórios mostraron índices óptimos de fiabilidad y validez. Se observó una mayor implicación de los ciberagresores victimizados. Las comparaciones entre roles a través de pruebas no paramétricas mostraron en los ciberagresores un mayor apoyo social que el resto de perfiles y altos niveles en metas de popularidad. Las cibervíctimas destacaron por su alta percepción de competencia social.Los ciberagresores victimizados mostraron altos niveles de metas de popularidad y baja aceptación social. Los resultados obtenidos permiten concluir que la forma en que el grupo de iguales gestiona su vida emocional y social puede estar explicando la situación de cyberbullying entre los adolescentes"

Leer ficción fomenta la empatía. Los lectores pueden formarse ideas sobre las emociones, las motivaciones y las ideas de los otros y trasladar esas experiencias a la vida real. Así lo afirma Keith Oatley, psicólogo y novelista, en una revisión de un estudio sobre los beneficios de la lectura para la imaginación que publica hoy en Trends in Cognitive Sciences.

En este nueva investigación se aportan fundamentalmente dos estudios que apoyan la tesis de Oatley.

How the Internet Saved Turkey’s Internet-Hating President

How the Internet Saved Turkey’s Internet-Hating President | Educommunication | Scoop.it
On Friday night, as bombs dropped by the coup plotters fell on the Parliament building, members of the assembly gathered defiantly in its chamber. As the building shook with each explosion, a deputy from the ruling party turned on her phone and started to live stream. It was something I’ve seen protesters in Turkey do countless times before. Apparently, when tanks are in the streets, we all believe in the free flow of information. I hope we can also agree on its value in less dire circumstances.

L’éducation aux médias,
un moyen de renforcer le pouvoir d’agir des citoyens

"Le présent rapport part du postulat que l’éducation aux médias constitue une valeur ajoutée et un facteur de qualité de vie dans le quotidien des citoyens du 21e siècle, ainsi qu’un pilier de la démocratie. Comme l’a affirmé une étude récente, « l’omniprésence des médias dans la société moderne est telle qu’il n’est plus seulement avantageux de bien les connaître : ne pas avoir de compétences médiatiques constitue aujourd’hui un véritable handicap".
Manuel Pinto's insight:
" (...) on peut dire que l’éducation aux médias « fait partie du droit fondamental à la liberté d’expression et à l’information de tout citoyen dans tous les pays du monde ; elle sert donc à construire et à pérenniser la démocratie»".

social me: social media literacy for middle school classrooms

"Middle school is a time of drastic physical, cognitive, and social change for students. Many kids post their first messages on social media at this age, and their developmental changes are magnified and affected by their experiences online. ‘social me’ uses a media literacy framework to help kids become critical producers and consumers of photos on social media. Designed for use in schools, it combines lesson plans for teachers and a tablet app for students. Through challenges, discussions, and reflections, ‘social me’ brings kids’ everyday photo-sharing experiences into the classroom."

Twenty Turkish communication and media scholars will be unable to attend the annual conference of the International Association for Media and Communication Research (IAMCR), 27-31 July, in Leicester, UK, because on 20 July the government of Turkey imposed a ban on international travel for all academics associated with Turkish universities. As a consequence, Turkish researchers will not be able to share their research and knowledge at the most important global meeting of media and communication researchers.

Mas não faço parte do grupo dos que ficaram no passado carpindo mágoas por uma rádio mal amada, por vezes mal tratada, menos ainda perco tempo a achar que antigamente é que era bom.

Pokémon Go and Augmented Reality Play

Pokémon Go and Augmented Reality Play | Educommunication | Scoop.it

"The ‘Pokémon Go’ app is notable for its popularity across generations. It appeals to those who collected the plastic Pokémon monsters in the brand’s earlier incarnations, taking them back to a fondly remembered childhood pastime. It could even remind them of previous GPS location-based tagging games they may have played, such as ‘Foursquare’ (whose creator, Dennis Crowley, has said he is not at all bitter about the success of ‘Pokémon Go’). Such nostalgic media practices are nothing new, as numerous scholars have noted, but what makes this one particularly exciting for its adult fans is the transformation of their childhood monsters into virtual characters that live in their smartphone. The app is also drawing in a new Pokémon audience, one that knows little about the original television animation, video games or toys, launched initially in 1995."

We Are All Teachers Of Literacy | Educommunication | Scoop.it

Literacy today is taking on a whole new meaning and many years from now it will mean something entirely different. Therefore, we have to look at literacy through a new lens and expand on our definition of what makes kids and all of us literate and examine how technology supports our ability to do so.

What Is a Constant Cycle of Violent News Doing to Us?

What Is a Constant Cycle of Violent News Doing to Us? | Educommunication | Scoop.it

"It has been a rough year.
By now, our violence is down to a pattern, and there is a choreography to our reactions.
A killer seeks out a nightclub, a church, an airport, a courthouse, a protest. Someone is shot on video, sometimes by the police, and marchers fill the streets. An attack is carried out in France, America, Turkey, Bangladesh, Lebanon, Tunisia, Nigeria, and then claimed and celebrated by a radical terror group.
Our phones vibrate with news alerts. The talking heads fill air over cable news captions that shout “breaking news” in red. Rumors and misinformation abound. The comments erupt on Twitter, Facebook and news sites."
