Mapping Media Literacy Practices and Actions in EU28 - just published | Educommunication | Scoop.it
"So what is Europe doing to encourage our media literacy? What measures are being taken at national and European levels to improve our critical appreciation and understanding of the mass media? The European Audiovisual Observatory, part of the Council of Europe in Strasbourg, has just published a brand new study - Mapping of media literary practices and actions in EU - 28 - free to download by clicking on the button above. This study has been financed by the European Commission with the goal of analysing the various media literacy initiatives on a national or regional level in order to provide an overview of what is currently being undertaken. This is the first major mapping exercise to survey the field in Europe."

Vos données seront manipulées !

Vos données seront manipulées ! | Educommunication | Scoop.it
A l’occasion de la conférence Strata Data qui se déroulait fin septembre à New York, la chercheuse danah boyd (@zephoria), l’auteure de C’est compliqué (dont paraît ces jours la traduction d’un autre livre coécrit avec Mimi Ito et Henry Jenkins, Culture participative) a, comme toujours, livré une présentation remarquable (extrait en vidéo) sur la fragilité des données à l’heure de leur analyse massive.

La manipulation des médias a toujours existé et le numérique l’a certainement favorisé en rendant poreuse la frontière entre la propagande et le marketing, rappelle-t-elle en pointant vers le rapport publié par Data&Society en mai 2017, l’Institut de recherche dont elle est la fondatrice et la présidente (blog, @datasociety). Mais l’enjeu n’est pas de nous expliquer ce qui s’est déjà passé ou ce qui se passe actuellement, que de regarder ce qui s’annonce. A l’heure du Big data et de l’intelligence artificielle, si nous pensons que la donnée peut et doit être utilisée pour informer les gens et alimenter la technologie, alors nous devons commencer à construire l’infrastructure nécessaire pour limiter la corruption, les biais et l’abus de données. Nous devons reconsidérer la sécurité dans un monde de données.

Educomunicação no ensino, na pesquisa e na extensão

"Este trabalho propicia reflexões acerca do tripé indissociável ensino, pesquisa e extensão no ensino superior a partir das conclusões do projeto de pesquisa sobre a gestão da comunicação em três projetos de extensão do curso de Jornalismo da Universidade do Estado de Mato Grosso. Por meio de metodologia que se utilizou de pesquisa bibliográfica, entrevistas, observa- ção participante e análise documental dos referidos projetos, chegou-se à conclusão de que a gestão de processos comunicativos deles valoriza a comunicação dialógica e o espaço para expressão dos envolvidos na tomada de decisões coletivas. Esses resultados são ampliados com discussões que aproximam o pensamento de Paulo Freire às práticas jornalísticas e ao paradigma da Educomunicação."

La jeune Américaine de 17 ans a deux minutes pour se faire une opinion.

Les compétences numériques ne s’improvisent pas ! | Educommunication | Scoop.it

"Les cultures de l’information bousculent les cultures d’apprentissages et professionnelles traditionnelles de telle manière que la séparation entre technique et culture n’est désormais plus envisageable selon les principes de socialisation qui ont régulé l’ère pré-numérique. Dans le cadre de la transition numérique, ces compétences ont besoin de médiation pédagogique et de médiation technique, pour dépasser les usages sociaux conditionnés par les offres commerciales autant que les usages scolaires ancrés dans des pratiques pré-numériques. Elles mettent en évidence la nécessité d’un accompagnement des activités infocommunicationnelles des élèves : un rapport « décomplexé » et utilitaire aux technologies ne suffit pas. La maîtrise des outils numériques ne s’improvise pas et le déficit de culture générale en lien au numérique doit aussi être comblé pour sortir de l’impensé actuel, sous-tendu par des représentations dans lesquelles « le numérique » domine sans toutefois être considéré comme un objet de connaissances et de compétences."

News Media Literacy and Political Engagement: What’s the Connection?

Scholars and educators have long hoped that media education is positively related to pro-social goals such as political and civic engagement. With a focus on measuring news media literacy with emphasis on media knowledge, need for cognition and media locus of control, this study surveyed 537 college students and found positive relationships between news media literacy and two political engagement measures: current events knowledge and internal political efficacy. Findings show that news media literacy is not associated with political activity, although some dimensions of news media literacy are associated with lower levels of political trust. Results help to define significant components of news media literacy and suggest that these components help foster positive relationships with civic and political life.

Ideas and examples for teaching news literacy: disinformation at mass shooting in Las Vegas

Ideas and examples for teaching news literacy: disinformation at mass shooting in Las Vegas | Educommunication | Scoop.it
Within hours of the mass shooting in Las Vegas, online misinformation about the event was already rampant. At 6:25 a.m. ET on Oct. 2 (less than 5½ hours after the gunfire began), Ryan Broderick of BuzzFeed News published a summary of the hoaxes and other misinformation that had already emerged. Minutes later he tweeted that coordinated misinformation campaigns were taking place on 4Chan, a collection of online forums where participants post anonymously and toxic speech occurs in some subgroups. Once authorities had identified the shooter as Stephen Paddock, users of 4Chan doxed his girlfriend, Marilou Danley, and were actively pushing the idea that her ex-husband, Geary Danley — whose likes on Facebook included progressive organizations, people and causes — was the real shooter. That rumor quickly spread to far-right social accounts and was published on a notoriously inaccurate right-wing website, Gateway Pundit (the story was later taken down).

The stream of misinformation continued: Images of comedian Sam Hyde began to circulate with claims that he was the shooter (a standing joke in some corners of the internet); several attempts were made to connect Paddock to the antifa movement (far-left militant groups); rumors spread that both Marilou Danley and Paddock had converted to Islam; a number of pleas on social media asked for help finding “missing” people whose identities had been fabricated using pictures found elsewhere online; and a variety of conspiracy theories emerged, including the notion that the shooting was staged.
This Twitter thread from Broderick, along with his running list of falsehoods about the shooting, is essential reading.

Media literacy key concepts Lesson 5: Media have social and political implications | MediaSmarts | Educommunication | Scoop.it
In this lesson, students watch a video introducing the media literacy key concept that media have social and political implications. They discuss the idea of explicit messages in media products and then, after watching the video “It’s Not Easy Being Green,” discuss the idea that media products may have less obvious implicit messages. Students apply this analysis to another media product familiar to the class and then, in an optional final task, identify how a favourite media product has influenced them.

 La Chine veut établir un nouvel ordre mondial des médias | Educommunication | Scoop.it
Dans ce pays listé 176e sur 180 dans le classement 2017 de la liberté de la presse publié par Reporters sans frontières (RSF), des dizaines de journalistes et de blogueurs sont en prison pour avoir résisté aux ordres du département de la propagande du comité central du Parti.

Un système de censure technologique, la « grande muraille numérique », tient les 750 millions d’internautes à l’écart du monde. L’article 35 de la Constitution a beau garantir « la liberté de parole, de presse », le Prix Nobel de la paix Liu Xiaobo, qui réclamait précisément ces libertés, a payé cette audace de sa vie, mort car privé de soins en détention.

CJR: Making media literacy great again

CJR: Making media literacy great again | Educommunication | Scoop.it


"THE FOLLOWING SENTENCE IS NOT FAKE NEWS, nor does it rely on bullshit data: Media literacy works, and it just might save humanity. At least part of that sentence is backed up by a recent study that examines how people judge the accuracy of claims about controversial subjects. Researchers from the University of California, Riverside, and Santa Clara University provided more than 2,000 teenagers and adults up to age 27 with fake assertions connected to stories on highly charged topics such as economic inequality and tax policy. The study found that claims about controversial topics, whether true or false, were more often than not identified as accurate if they aligned with the person’s prior views. That’s essentially confirmation bias, seeking out and believing information that strengthens your worldview. Sobering. Also, not surprising. Then the researchers dug further into the data, producing remarkable findings. They looked at two subsets of study subjects: those with higher than average political knowledge but no media literacy training, and those who had little or no political knowledge but took media literacy courses. Having political knowledge “did not improve judgments of accuracy,” the authors wrote. Media literacy education did. Other recent studies have hinted at similar success, but it’s unknown whether these lessons carry as much weight once students enter the real world."

Towards a Culturally Inclusive, Integrated, and Transdisciplinary Media Education Curriculum

Towards a Culturally Inclusive, Integrated, and Transdisciplinary Media Education Curriculum | Educommunication | Scoop.it
Internationalization presents both opportunities and challenges for higher education policies and curricula, as well as for teaching and learning methods. This article describes and discusses ongoing exploration and development of the planned curriculum of the MA in Media Education at the Faculty of Education at the University of Lapland, Finland in terms of cultural inclusion and the integration of disciplines. The study concludes that the planned curriculum now includes new content that better supports cultural inclusion. Nevertheless, it was established that several steps are needed to move toward a more inter- and even transdisciplinary media education higher education curriculum.
