How digital natives can become better digital professionals | Educommunication | Scoop.it

"Wth social media use among adults growing more common every year, it seems like a natural solution to harness those online activities into a potential career, reports Hootsuite Blog. However, being a social media expert requires more than just growing up in a slow transition from a Myspace to a Facebook profile – turning into the so-called social natives."

Media literacy and #Ferguson livestreams | Educommunication | Scoop.it
I’ve been glued to the news unfolding in Ferguson, Missouri all this week. There is a movement growing as a lot of ugly forces in American life are becoming impossible for a certain mainstream to continue ignoring. At the same time, it’s been really remarkable from a media perspective: a lot of the story built …

Toward a More Substantive Media Ecology: Postman’s Metaphor Versus Posthuman Futures

Toward a More Substantive Media Ecology: Postman’s Metaphor Versus Posthuman Futures | Educommunication | Scoop.it

"The metaphor of “ecology,” common in vernacular and academic discourse about communication media, can inhibit substantively ecological thinking about communication.  While some have attributed the currency of this metaphor to Marshall McLuhan, I argue that this criticism is better directed at Neil Postman, who helped popularize McLuhan under the banner of “media ecology.”  I outline the need for substantively ecological thinking, sketch its ontological and ethical contours, and illustrate the ubiquity of a more metaphorical use of “ecology” as applied to communication media.  I then discuss Postman and some of his intellectual heirs, linking their dualistic thinking to a metaphorical conception, which I argue inhibits full appreciation of interrelations among humans, our cultures and technologies, and the more-than-human world."

Being Critically Reflective - What does it mean?

Being Critically Reflective - What does it mean? | Educommunication | Scoop.it

The terms 'critical' and 'reflection' are sorely misunderstood in education. Being critical is often misinterpreted as being negative. 'Reflection' is also frequently distorted to mean "reflect on what you are doing wrong". Too often the students that we teach give negative feedback when asked to be critical. So to counter act this, educators initiate strategies such as '2 stars and a wish' and SWNI (strengths, weaknesses, new ideas).
These strategies are designed to make reflective practices a more positive experience for students. It teaches them that being critically reflective is not just a negative activity, that it is important to be positive and give feedback to help improve or make something better.

Ecological Literacy: Ecosystems, Patterns, and Society (Part 1)

Part 1: Introduction to Interconnectedness and Cyclicity"Being ecologically literate means understanding the principles of organization of ecological communities (ecosystems) and using those principles for creating sustainable human communities.” -Capra, The Web of Life, 297

One can easily make the argument that the lack of true connection, or even more so, the lack of interconnection, is one of the most ubiquitous conditions of the human experience in contemporary Western society.

Éducation aux médias: visée educative et filiations théoriques

"La définition la plus précise que nous avons trouvée est celle proposée par Cary Balzagette, Evelyne Bevort, Josiane Savino (in : L'éducation aux médias dans le monde, Clemi Unesco, 1992) :

"Une éducation aux médias est une pratique et un processus éducatifs destinés à permettre aux membres d"une collectivité de participer de façon créative et critique (au niveau de la production, de la distribution, et de la présentation) à l'utilisation des médias technologiques et traditionnels, afin de développer et libérer les individus et la collectivité et de démocratiser la communication."

O fim do monopólio do professor e da instituição escolar

"Quero deixar claro que essa concepção que defendo implica desenvolver educação reflexiva e crítica, e não apenas informativa. As informações estão disponíveis nas mídias e redes sociais. Na escola, temos a oportunidade e o dever de auxiliar nossos alunos a compreender a construção histórica da vida social e a produzir conhecimentos sobre o mundo com as informações que recebem e podem acessar”, considera a professora doutora Ana Maria Monteiro, em entrevista por e-mail à IHU On-Line. “Nem o professor nem a instituição escolar possuem mais o monopólio da divulgação da informação. Nesse sentido, aulas para a simples transmissão de informações tornaram-se anacrônicas e desinteressantes. Nós professores temos que aproveitar a disponibilidade de acesso à informação e desenvolver em nossas aulas projetos de pesquisa, busca de estabelecimento de relações, problematizações”, complementa."

European Initiative for Media Pluralism - A European mobilisation in defence of media freedom

European Initiative for Media Pluralism - A European mobilisation in defence of media freedom | Educommunication | Scoop.it

"European Alternatives and Alliance Internationale de Journalistes have been working since 2010 towards the establishment of a European Initiative for Media Pluralism, a coalition promoting the idea that European institutions should safeguard the right to free, independent and pluralistic information. The European Initiative for Media Pluralism (EIMP) brings together organisations, media, and professional bodies from throughout Europe with the immediate purpose of running a European Citizens Initiative (ECI) demanding the implementation of an EU Directive on media pluralism. The ECI is a new tool of participatory democracy introduced from April 2012 by the Lisbon Treaty, which allows civil society coalitions to collect online and offline one million signatures in at least 7 EU member states to present directly to the European Commission a proposal forming the base of an EU Directive, initiating a legislative process."

What is content Curation? Great explanation and very interesting interview with Robin Good on curation.

John Gougoulis's curator insight, August 19, 3:34 AM

An absolutely significant skill in any research or investigation, for educators and learners in the digital age - the curation of content- with a clear focus or question in mind, the capacity to target a search field, sift through, reflect on and make decisions about the most suitable resource or evidence to use. What a great learning experience.

Net Neutrality, Algorithmic Filtering and Ferguson (USA)

Net Neutrality, Algorithmic Filtering and Ferguson (USA) | Educommunication | Scoop.it

"

Ferguson is about many things, starting first with race and policing in America.

But it’s also about internet, net neutrality and algorithmic filtering.

It’s a clear example of why “saving the Internet”, as it often phrased, is not an abstract issue of concern only to nerds, Silicon Valley bosses, and few NGOs. It’s why “algorithmic filtering” is not a vague concern.

It’s a clear example why net neutrality is a human rights issue; a free speech issue; and an issue of the voiceless being heard, on their own terms."
