Novo padrão da Internet promove o bloqueio da informação

Tod@s usamos a Internet e a World-Wide-Web (WWW), e celebramos isso por ter nivelado o campo de jogo da informação. Isto tem facilitado a comunicação não mediada entre pares (P2P) e colocado todos os conteúdos em um nível de igualdade. Quem inventou a Internet e a web ofereceram-nas ao mundo para promover o bem comum. As principais entidades responsáveis por estabelecer os padrões da Internet, como a Internet Engineering Task Force e a World Wide Web Consortium (W3C), estavam igualmente preocupadas em resguardar os valores fundamentais da Internet de igualdade e abertura.

Mas a Internet tem evoluído e, para aqueles que detêm o poder econômico, tornou-se também uma oportunidade chave para a dominação e exploração. As diversas entidades que agora desenvolvem os padrões da Internet encontram-se dominadas pelas corporações digitais transnacionais. Não é de se surpreender, então, que os novos padrões da Internet/web respondam cada vez mais às necessidades dessas corporações, ao invés das necessidades do público em geral.

Web Literacy for Student Fact-Checkers | Simple Book Production

Web Literacy for Student Fact-Checkers | Simple Book Production | Educommunication | Scoop.it
"The web is a unique terrain, substantially different from print materials. Yet, too often attempts at teaching information literacy for the web do not take into account both the web’s unique challenges and its unique affordances. Much web literacy we’ve seen either asks students to look at web pages and think about them, or teaches them to publish and produce things on the web. While both these activities are valuable, neither addresses a set of real problems students confront daily: evaluating the information that reaches them through their social media streams. For these daily tasks, student don’t need long lists of questions to think about while gazing at web documents. They need concrete strategies and tactics for tracing claims to sources and for analyzing the nature and reliability of those sources. (...) This is an unabashedly practical guide for the student fact-checker. It supplements generic information literacy with the specific web-based techniques that can get you closer to the truth on the web more quickly".

Old fare: Hollywood’s depictions of the elderly are tired clichés 

Old fare: Hollywood’s depictions of the elderly are tired clichés  | Educommunication | Scoop.it

A USC Annenberg Film Study from 2016 found that seniors are both underrepresented and stereotyped on screen. Analysing the 100 highest-grossing films of 2015, the authors found that only 11% of characters were aged 60 and over—off-screen seniors represent 18.5% of the general population—and 30 of the 57 films that featured a senior character used ageist comments. Senior characters that died on-screen often did so at the hands of physical violence rather than from chronic illness, the most probable cause of death of an ageing population. Hollywood’s depiction of seniors does not map onto real life.

News and media literacy the way it’s always been taught may not be the right response to fake news woes

News and media literacy the way it’s always been taught may not be the right response to fake news woes | Educommunication | Scoop.it
Fake news and news literacy and community engagement sometimes feel like new topics — and especially urgent ones, given nightmare-come-to-life incidents like Pizzagate.

But many people, including plenty in academia, have been plugging away at this line of work since well before Facebook had a fake news PR situation on its hands, before Pizzagate, before the 2016 U.S. election, before Facebook passed a billion active users.

Rapport: Cartographie des pratiques et des activités d' éducation aux médias dans l'UE-28

"(...) Le rapport ne procède par conséquent pas à un classement ni à une évaluation des projets présentés, mais il procède à leur classification en fonction d’une série de paramètres afin de pouvoir les comparer. Le seul but de ce rapport, qui n’a pas l’ambition de brosser un tableau complet du paysage de l’éducation aux médias dans l’ensemble de l’Europe, est de donner un aperçu des tendances des projets réalisés en matière d’éducation aux médias par les parties prenantes des 28 États membres de l'Union européenne, afin de mettre en avant certains des projets les plus variés, intéressants et innovants dans l'espoir d'encourager de futures collaborations à travers l'Europe."

En esta línea están trabajando muchos docentes de Canarias, en distintos ámbitos y proyectos. La radio escolar está entrando de una manera muy interesante en las aulas, convirtiéndose no solo en una herramienta para visibilizar el aprendizaje, sino para introducir nuevas metodologías y técnicas de trabajo que cambien la manera de “dar clases” en nuestros centros educativos.

"Podem existir clubes de leitura “numa empresa, num banco, numa fábrica”. Pode haver livros nos comboios, e não apenas televisão. Para já, são apenas ideias de Teresa Calçada, que há décadas está ligada à política do livro e da leitura e esteve à frente da Rede das Bibliotecas Escolares até 2014. Ela e Elsa Maria Conde, que também vem da Rede das Bibliotecas Escolares, são agora as responsáveis pelo novo Plano Nacional de Leitura (PNL).

Bills to foster news literacy in California and Washington

Bills to foster news literacy in California and Washington | Educommunication | Scoop.it

Assemblyman Jimmy Gomez, D-Los Angeles, introduced a bill earlier this year that would direct a state curriculum board to develop resources to teach students how to judge news stories they can trust. AB 155 is scheduled to come up for a vote in the Assembly Education committee at 1:30 p.m. in Room 126 today.

A similar bill from Sen. Bill Dodd, D-Napa, will be heard in the Senate Education committee at 9 a.m. in room 4203, along with Sen. Hannah-Beth Jackson’s SB 203. The Santa Barbara Democrat wants to develop a state advisory committee of teachers, administrators, researchers and parents to develop public school strategies to teach students digital citizenship, internet safety, and media literacy.


Washington leaders have also passed a law that requires students to learn about media literacy and internet safety in schools. Read here: http://bit.ly/2pQWRaO

Teaching critical thinking

Understanding and thinking critically about scientific evidence is a crucial skill in the modern world. We present a simple learning framework that employs cycles of decisions about making and acting on quantitative comparisons between datasets or data and models. With opportunities to improve the data or models, this structure is appropriate for use in any data-driven science-learning setting. This structure led to significant and sustained improvement in students’ critical thinking behaviors, compared with a control group, with effects far beyond that of statistical significance.

Étude: Partager ou ne pas partager les photos d'eux-mêmes ou d'autres en ligne? | Educommunication | Scoop.it
S’appuyant sur les résultats de recherche concernant la vie privée dans notre recherche Jeunes Canadiens dans un monde branché, cette étude qualitative sur les jeunes de 13 à 16 ans examine leur raisonnement quand vient le temps de partager des photos d’eux-mêmes ou d’autres en ligne. Ces entrevues explorent les façons dont les normes sociales et la confidentialité basée sur la réputation affectent les décisions des adolescents par rapport à l’affichage des photos et elles cherchent à savoir s’ils consentent activement ou non à la cueillette et à l’utilisation de leurs données personnelles par les plateformes dont ils se servent pour partager des photos.

Facebook’s News Literacy Advice Is Harmful to News Literacy | Educommunication | Scoop.it

"As we’ve said many times before, fact-checkers do the opposite of what Facebook is recommending here. They get off the page. They stop looking at what the page says about itself, and start learning what the network says about the page or claim. They look up the site in Wikipedia, or the cited experts in Google Scholar. They use the power of the network to check stuff on the network."

Why Students Can't Google Their Way to the Truth

Why Students Can't Google Their Way to the Truth | Educommunication | Scoop.it

"Did Donald Trump support the Iraq War? Hillary Clinton says yes. He says no. Who's right? In search of answers, many of us ask our kids to "Google" something. These so-called digital natives, who've never known a world without screens, are the household's resident fact-checkers. If anyone can find the truth, we assume, they can. Don't be so sure. True, many of our kids can flit between Facebook and Twitter while uploading a selfie to Instagram and texting a friend. But when it comes to using the Internet to get to the bottom of things, Junior's no better than the rest of us. Often he's worse."

Tim Berners-Lee, Inventor of the Web, Plots a Radical Overhaul of His Creation

Tim Berners-Lee, Inventor of the Web, Plots a Radical Overhaul of His Creation | Educommunication | Scoop.it

"When Berners-Lee created the web, it was a decentralized platform. Anyone could publish a website and link to any other site. But as the web has grown from an obscure research-sharing tool for the scientific community into a global medium for commerce, communication, journalism, and entertainment, the power dynamics have shifted. Today, huge companies like Amazon, Facebook, Google, and Netflix dominate the web. These corporate giants enjoy an enormous amount of control not only over what people see and do online but over users’ private data. These days, Berners-Lee is working to reverse that trend as the co-lead of the Decentralized Information Group at MIT’s Laboratory for Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence (CSAIL)."
