Posverdad, periodismo y alfabetización mediática

Posverdad, periodismo y alfabetización mediática | Educommunication | Scoop.it
¿Por qué no enseñar desde la escuela a los niños a ser críticos con los medios? Un estudio realizado por Paul Mihailidis (2009) apunta que los estudiantes que realizan cursos sobre alfabetización mediática incrementan su habilidad para entender, evaluar y analizar los mensajes de los medios. ¿Por qué no ofrecer a los niños y jóvenes las herramientas necesarias para evaluar la credibilidad de la información?.

Si las nuevas generaciones obtienen su información de redes sociales y otros recursos online deben aprender a decodificar lo que leen online. Por eso hay que integrar la alfabetización mediática en el currículum escolar (ver por ejemplo Project Look Sharp o el News Literacy Project).

Pero la alfabetización mediática no sólo es responsabilidad de las escuelas. Como recientemente ha apuntado Dan Gillmor en las predicciones para 2017 del NiemanLab, los medios y los periodistas pueden conseguir mayor impacto que las instituciones educativas. De aquí que sea necesario que los medios sean más transparentes (hacer participar a las audiencias, conversar con ellas y reconocer los errores con explicaciones de lo que sucedió y los pasos que se tomarán para prevenir que esto no ocurra en el futuro).

In Visually Literate Classrooms, Words Are Worth A Thousand Pictures

In Visually Literate Classrooms, Words Are Worth A Thousand Pictures | Educommunication | Scoop.it

High school English class is usually a time to read books and write essays. If you draw pictures, you might get into trouble. But not in James Shivers’s English class at CREC Public Safety Academy in Enfield -- he actually asks his students to draw.
Eighteen-year-old Samantha Vasquez was initially skeptical at the thought of drawing and looking at art as an English lesson.
"At first, I was kind of like, really against this because I didn't understand it," she said.
She's a book lover, and thought all this attention on visuals would be distracting.
"But when you get to actually see what he's doing," she said, "you can kind of see he's trying to put visuals with the writing and things like that, and it opens up new ways to view different things."

When fiction’s sold as fact

While misinformation isn’t new, it’s more serious now because the information ecosystem has changed dramatically.

In the echo chamber, everyone’s an expert simply because they look something up on the Internet. Like-minded individuals talk among themselves, reinforcing their beliefs. Anything that supports that belief catches on like wildfire, he says, explaining how in a post-truth world, fake news can influence millions.

(An echo chamber is an insular communication space where everyone agrees with the information and more often than not, no outside input is allowed.)

Fake news causes fear and panic, delegitimises leaders, divides societies, endangers lives and brings mistrust to the process of democracy, he says. Citing an example, he shared how a video of Muslims celebrating a cricket match victory was used to feed public anger after the 2015 Paris terror attacks.

“It only took the click of a button to change the title of the video, which went on to generate half a million views in two hours.”

Stop-motion to Foster Digital Literacy in Elementary School

"Although digital media literacy is recognized as providing the essential competencies required for living in a new media age, it has only just started to gain focus just starts to gain focus in Taiwan's elementary education. one of the reasons is examination-oriented education, which diverts scarce resources away from this informal learning. The other reason is that educators tend to think of digital media education as a series of purely technical operations, which might lead student digital media learning to mindless work. Therefore, this study designed a media exhibition based on Kolb's experiential learning model for teaching students concepts of stop-motion films and techniques of film production. A design experiment involved 247 third-grade elementary students who were grouped to visit the experiential exhibition. The findings suggest that the students have improved their knowledge of stop-motion films. Analysis of produced films by students also shows that they have improved their media ability to represent their ideas and communicate with others. Through the analysis of the influence of demographics on the knowledge test, the findings revealed that the experiential exhibition is more effective for female elementary students and students' relevant previous experiences may not affect their acquired knowledge. given those results and observations, we believe that the proposed experiential exhibition is a promising way to carry out digital media literacy education in elementary schools"

Media AND Information Literacy: Evolving Together

"There is no substitute for talking with librarians and community leaders to catch the sense of excitement and promise around the virtual - and physical - reinvention of libraries. In every setting, whether in an academic library or a public library, a maker space or a study space, libraries are actively seeking out new ways to serve patrons, and expanding notions of what it means to be an educated citizen, prepared for the world today. Libraries are well prepared to support anywhere, anytime learning, and librarians are strong advocates for citizens' understanding their rights and responsibilities regarding intellectual freedom and education".

Los nativos digitales no existen | Planeta de Libros

Los nativos digitales no existen | Planeta de Libros | Educommunication | Scoop.it

"Hoy en día estamos acostumbrados a oír la expresión «nativo digital» para referirse a los nacidos a partir de mediados de los noventa, quienes, supuestamente acostumbrados a la presencia de ordenadores y otros dispositivos digitales en sus vidas, no necesitan que nadie les enseñe a utilizarlos. Pero esto dista mucho de ser así y es un error considerar a estas generaciones competentes en el uso de la tecnología por el mero hecho de haber nacido con ella. ¿Acaso por nacer en una familia que hable castellano dominamos el idioma? Muy al contrario, no se trata de una generación especialmente dotada de conocimientos, habilidades o intereses en lo que al uso de las llamadas «nuevas tecnologías» se refiere, y cuando manejan programas distintos a Instagram, Snapchat, YouTube u otros que utilizan para descargarse música y películas, muchos de ellos son bastante torpes. Más bien deberíamos hablar de huérfanos digitales con una preocupante falta de formación."

«Fake news»: una oportunidad para la alfabetización mediática | Nueva Sociedad

«Fake news»: una oportunidad para la alfabetización mediática | Nueva Sociedad | Educommunication | Scoop.it
Las noticias falsas no son un fenómeno nuevo, pero sí lo es la amplitud con que pueden reproducirse en las redes sociales. Cuando hoy, en varios idiomas, se habla de fake news, se da cuenta de ese fenómeno. La pérdida de centralidad de la fuente y la posibilidad de «viralización» –otro término de época– disminuyen a menudo el interés por la veracidad de la noticia y las capacidades críticas de lectura para identificar lo falso. En la medida en que grandes proporciones de la población se informan en las redes, estas cuestiones tienen consecuencias políticas muy directas, como se vio en varios sucesos recientes.

Women of “The Wire”

In this paper we analyze the representation of women on the popular television show The Wire. We discuss how, while writers attempt to portray race, crime, and inner-city life with sociological accuracy, characterizations of women, and of violence against women, are not especially complex or realistic. In particular, the crime of rape is underrepresented. While the show does feature certain competent, successful professional women, overall the portrayal of underclass women differs significantly from that of underclass men, featuring far fewer sympathetic female characters and demonizing several. In these ways the show succumbs to the sexist, patriarchal norms that characterize much of the representation of women in popular entertainment products. Some posit that this asymmetry of gender representation results from the male-oriented street experience of the show’s male writers.

El antropólogo analiza el rol de los dueños de Internet que, con carnadas virtuales, obtienen información.


"Tal vez la mayor virtud del investigador y ensayista Néstor García Canclini sea la de leer rápidamente qué es lo que va a ser necesario discutir hoy en el terreno de las ciencias sociales y humanísticas para entender mañana el cambio permanente que desde hace más de dos décadas caracteriza el presente. “Ciudadanos reemplazados por algoritmos” es el título de su exposición en la Noche de la Filosofía. Y con esta lectura, encabeza –sin proponérselo– una avanzada de antropólogos que asistirán a este encuentro. Algunos como María Carman, Pablo Wright y Carlos Reynoso están en estas páginas. Poco antes de viajar a Buenos Aires desde México, donde reside desde 1976, habló del tema que hoy lo moviliza".

Ofcom report: Adults' Media Lives

"Ofcom's Adults' Media Lives study was set up in 2005 to provide a small-scale, rich and detailed qualitative complement to Ofcom's quantitative surveys of media literacy. The project follows the same 19 individuals over time, and interviews them on camera each year about their media habits and attitudes. The interviews provide evidence about the motivations and the context of media use, and how media services and devices are part of daily life and domestic circumstances. The project also provides us with rich detail of how media habits and attitudes change over time, in particular linked to life-stage."
