Digital Media Literacy Education and Online Civic and Political Participation

Can media literacy education promote and improve youth engagement in civic and political life? Unfortunately, to date, there have been almost no quantitative assessments of the frequency of media literacy education, nor of any possible subsequent impacts. This study draws on a unique panel data set of a diverse group of youths in high school and college settings. It finds that ...

"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."

Impacto socioeducativo del periódico escolar: metaanálisis de tres proyectos de educomunicación en Brasil, España y Portugal

Impacto socioeducativo del periódico escolar: metaanálisis de tres proyectos de educomunicación en Brasil, España y Portugal | Educommunication | Scoop.it

"Este trabajo analiza la educomunicación y, en concreto, tres proyectos de educación para los medios en escuelas de tres países iberoamericanos: Brasil, Portugal y España, todos ellos tutelados por universidades. El objetivo principal es identificar de qué forma la educación para los medios de comunicación permite formar ciudadanos más despiertos para la realidad en la que viven y de qué manera este cambio puede impactar en la mejora de la sociedad. La metodología utilizada, la metaanálisis cualitativa, ha permitido comparar e integrar los resultados de los estudios desarrollados en escuelas de los tres países. En todos los casos se buscaba entender de qué forma la participación en la elaboración de un periódico (en papel o digital), utilizado como herramienta de educomunicación, podía sensibilizar a los jóvenes para ser más activos en su comunidad, en la definición de un futuro colectivo. Las conclusiones destacan que en los tres estudios se considera la participación en un periódico escolar como una forma de ejercer una ciudadanía activa, que además es reconocida por la comunidad. Este reconocimiento desenvuelve la autoestima de los participantes y vigoriza su espíritu crítico, fundamental para el buen funcionamiento de la sociedad"

Situación de la educación en medios y la competencia crítica en el mundo actual: opinión de expertos internacionales

El artículo analiza los resultados de la encuesta internacional sobre la «Situación de la educación en medios y la competencia crítica en medios en el mundo actual», llevada a cabo por los autores en mayo-julio de 2014. Fueron entrevistados responsables de 64 medios de comunicación, educadores críticos e investigadores en el campo de la educación mediática y la cultura de los medios de comunicación de 18 países: USA, Reino Unido, Canadá, Australia, Nueva Zelanda, Alemania, Irlanda, España, Portugal, Suecia, Finlandia, Grecia, Chipre, Hungría, Ucrania, Serbia, Turquía y Rusia. El análisis global de los datos muestra que la comunidad internacional de expertos comparte la convicción de que la situación de la educación en medios y la competencia crítica no es únicamente posible sino también necesaria, sobre todo en términos del desarrollo del pensamiento crítico de la audiencia. Sin embargo, solamente el 9,4% de los expertos en general cree que se utilizan los textos críticos de los medios en las clases de alfabetización mediática en sus respectivos países. Aproximadamente un tercio (34,4% de los expertos encuestados) cree que esto está sucediendo en un nivel aceptable y un porcentaje similar (32,8% de las respuestas) considera que ocurre en una mínima parte. En consecuencia, habrá mucho trabajo que hacer para que la educación en medios y su análisis crítico consiga su implementación eficaz en el mundo actual.

Media and communications in a transforming environment: politics, civil society and participation

Media and communications in a transforming environment: politics, civil society and participation | Educommunication | Scoop.it
Dynamic changes in media technology, society, media consumption and the economy affect the media landscape as well as the role and status of media users who are no longer passive receivers, but active media participants, and thus need to develop appropriate competence areas. We argue that using an interdisciplinary perspective within communication and journalism studies is necessary to address the scope of challenges that new media users are facing. Hence, we propose a palette of competence areas to be achieved, which would include intercultural communication, interpersonal communication and a basic knowledge of ethics, visual literacy, and source criticism abilities. While we understand these competence areas to be strongly intertwined, we elaborate each separately. Throughout this chapter, we raise issues related to (i) the pervasive and unproblematized use of the notion of culture, (ii) the increasingly interactive and interpersonal nature of the new media landscape, (iii) the importance of learning how to interpret visual content, and (iv) the ability to evaluate information accuracy and quality. We conclude that a holistic view, including, but not limited to, communication scholarship and journalism studies is required and needs to be further developed in order to define the characteristics of the new media participant. Directions for future research are suggested in the conclusion.

How to be alone in our techno-consumer culture

"As you document in your book, Karl Kraus was a critic at the turn of the 20th century in end-of-empire Vienna who aimed his barbs at the then emergent mass media of newspapers and the ephemeral, “subjective” self-expression of the feuilltons, or “small pages.” It was here that the media first became a marketing platform selling blog-like personal impressions and celebrity of the kind we might today associate with Kim Kardashian or Lady Gaga. In his own publication, The Torch, Kraus sought, in contrast, to note “the chords of eternity in the noises of daily life” as a way to resist the trivialization of culture. For him, that required time, depth and deliberation, not homogenous flattening and accelerated production of whatever is new to get attention. As you suggest, Kraus’s worries were only a dim premonition of what the tech-driven new media is becoming in our consumer societies. What are the consequences for culture of what you call “the infernal machine of techno-consumerism?”

Alain Corbin : «Histoire du silence de la Renaissance à nos jours» - RFI

Alain Corbin : «Histoire du silence de la Renaissance à nos jours» - RFI | Educommunication | Scoop.it

"Le silence n’est pas la simple absence de bruit. Le silence réside en nous, dans cette sensation intérieure que certains grands écrivains, penseurs, savants, femmes et hommes de foi ont cultivée durant des siècles. C’est sur cette histoire que revient le livre d’Alain Corbin, celle d’un âge où la parole n’envahissait pas tout. À l’heure où le bruit a pénétré tous les espaces, où l’électronique, les écrans et tant d’autres objets diffusent une pollution visuelle et sonore, un tel ouvrage est singulier. Il montre le lien subtil entre l’invention de l’individu et la construction d’une citadelle intérieure. Redécouvrir l’école du silence, tel est l’enjeu de ce livre dont chaque citation est une invitation à la méditation, au retour sur soi."

Alfabetismo en Medios ayer, hoy y mañana

Alfabetismo en Medios ayer, hoy y mañana | Educommunication | Scoop.it
Los “nuevos medios” no cambian la esencia de lo que es el Alfabetismo en Medios, ni tampoco afecta su importancia en la sociedad actual. Len Masterman, profesor en el Reino Unido, publicó sus Libros innovadores en la década de 1980 y sentó las bases del Alfabetismo en Medios que se debe enseñar a los estudiantes de primaria y secundaria de manera sistemática que sea consistente, reproducible, medible y escalable a nivel mundial - y, por tanto, atemporal. La idea clave de Masterman era que el concepto central unificador de la educación en medios es el de la representación: los medios son sistemas de signos simbólicos que se deben codificar y decodificar. Este artículo explora el desarrollo y la aplicación de los Conceptos Fundamentales del Alfabetismo en Medios, basado en el trabajo pionero de Masterman, en Canadá y en los EE.UU.

Ler romances faz viver mais e melhor. Palavra da Universidade de Yale 

Ler romances faz viver mais e melhor. Palavra da Universidade de Yale  | Educommunication | Scoop.it
O hábito da leitura é um passaporte para o turismo no universo do imaginário, com direito a viagens sem fim. Porque mesmo quando você acaba de ler um, logo aparece outro e outro te levando para novas e fascinantes jornadas, e assim a vida vai ganhando motivos a mais para ser vivida. Pois aquilo que todos sabíamos por intuição, a ciência acaba de revelar por comprovação: ler faz você viver por mais tempo.

Não é forçação de quem ama e defende o protagonismo dos livros. É dado real. Estudos da Universidade de Yale (Estados Unidos) — décima maior do mundo* —, publicados no periódico científico Social Science and Medicine, concluíram que pessoas que passam mais de três horas e meia por semana lendo livros de romance ou ficção correm um risco de morte 23% menor do que aquelas que não leem nunca. Vale para Machado de Assis, Dostoiévski e Harry Potter. Sim, ler jornal, revista ou periódicos também traz benefícios para a longevidade, mas não tantos. Mais um ponto pro velho e bom livro.

Media Literacy Scholars at Risk in Turkey

Media Literacy Scholars at Risk in Turkey | Educommunication | Scoop.it

"We are deeply concerned about our Media Education Lab colleague Professor Sait Tuzel, who has been arrested by the Turkish government  
Sait teaches at Canakkale Onsekiz Mart University and is a leading scholar in media literacy in language arts education. He is the author of the middle-school textbook used in the Media Literacy course offered to 350,000 students in Turkey. His research, Debates about the Future of Media Literacy in Turkey, was recently published in the Journal of Media Literacy Education. This  video overviews some recently published research on teacher motivations for media literacy in Turkey. We urge the Turkish government to ensure that Sait has a free and fair trial and enable him to return safely to his wife and two young children."

Quebec Competencies Chart - Media literacy key concepts Lesson 3: Audiences negotiate meaning | Educommunication | Scoop.it
In this lesson, students watch a video introducing the media literacy key concept that audiences negotiate meaning. They discuss the idea that different media products are aimed at different audiences and that different people may react differently to the same media product, and reflect on the experience of liking something they aren’t “supposed” to. In an optional final task, students watch a pair of TV shows, one they would normally choose to watch and one they wouldn’t, and identify the ways in which each is aimed at its target market as well as speculating on how someone other than the target market might react to it.

Reflections on Information Literacy

"Information Literacy is an emerging discipline that operates according to a set of principles and strategies that enable individuals to make sense of the information we are exposed to on an ongoing basis. This discipline, which is defined as the ability to access and assess information, provides a framework that facilitates the discussion of Information with others-including children, peers, and the people responsible for the presentation of information. The paper identifies points of convergence with Media Literacy but makes the point that they remain distinct areas of study. The paper also identifies a series Lines of Inquiry that distinguishes this important discipline. Principle #1: The Body of Information (BOI) to which a person is exposed represents a version of reality. Instituting a BOI is a selective process; much depends upon which pieces of information have been assembled into a coherent narrative. Principle #2: The choice of audience affects the strategy and content of the information. Consequently, assessing the BOI - the composite of Information that has been collected by (or for) an individual—can provide insight into the intended audience. Principle #3: Data is, in itself, neutral. What determines whether it is instructive or deceptive depends largely on who is selecting and assembling the information, why it is being presented, and who is the intended audience."
