How Western civilisation could collapse

How Western civilisation could collapse | Educommunication | Scoop.it
The political economist Benjamin Friedman once compared modern Western society to a stable bicycle whose wheels are kept spinning by economic growth. Should that forward-propelling motion slow or cease, the pillars that define our society – democracy, individual liberties, social tolerance and more – would begin to teeter. Our world would become an increasingly ugly place, one defined by a scramble over limited resources and a rejection of anyone outside of our immediate group. Should we find no way to get the wheels back in motion, we’d eventually face total societal collapse.

How to use Facebook Live for journalism and improve user engagement: Lessons from Spanish-language media

How to use Facebook Live for journalism and improve user engagement: Lessons from Spanish-language media | Educommunication | Scoop.it

"When ranchera singer Pedro Infante died in April 1957, then-nascent Mexican television broadcast his funeral live, with black-and-white images showing a crowd following his funeral procession through the streets of Mexico City. It became a historical television broadcast in that country. Decades later, the mourning for the death of another Mexican popular idol – singer-songwriter Juan Gabriel – was broadcast live last year, although the scope of the images multiplied and transcended borders thanks to many media that broadcast it by Facebook Live. Facebook's live streaming platform emerged in 2015, but was opened to the public in January 2016. News media did not delay getting on board."

However, among these older populations, little is known about what factors influence their eHealth literacy and use of Web 2.0 for health information.

OBJECTIVE:
The intent of the study was to explore the extent to which sociodemographic, social determinants, and electronic device use influences eHealth literacy and use of Web 2.0 for health information among baby boomers and older adults.

Competencies vs. Skills or What vs. How

Competencies vs. Skills or What vs. How | Educommunication | Scoop.it
While skills are an important part of learning and career paths, they’re not rich or nuanced enough to guide students towards true mastery and success. Skills focus on the “what” in terms of the abilities a student needs to perform a specific task or activity. They don’t provide enough connection to the how. Competencies take this to the next level by translating skills into behaviors that demonstrate what has been learned and mastered in a competent fashion. In short, skills identify what the goal is to accomplish.

Cuatro programas gratuitos para editar vídeos | Educommunication | Scoop.it
Empezamos el año hablando de las mejores alternativas a Photoshop, la herramienta de edición de fotografía más famosa del mundo. En concreto, presentamos cinco programas que ejecutan la mayoría de funciones básicas del editor de Adobe... sin generar un agujero negro en nuestro bolsillo. Hoy os presentamos un post similar, sólo que no nos vamos a centrar en la edición de imagen, sino en la de vídeo. Y en lugar de ser cinco, serán cuatro los programas gratuitos que, en este caso, nos permiten hacer nuestros pinitos en este campo. ¿Quién se apunta?

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.

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."
