GoogleLitTrips Reading List's curator insight, August 17, 11:47 AM
17 August 2017

Since the release of the new Google Earth for Web, we've been busy adapting the Google Lit Trip library to maximize the viewer experience when imported into the gorgeous new Google Earth for Web. 

With its amazingly beautiful smooth animation and full 3D globe, Google Earth for Web provides the most immersive viewer experience for all computer, chromebook, and tablet users.

We've focused upon our most popular titles first. The current list of fully adapted titles on the website at GoogleLitTrips.org will be updated as we continue our efforts to fully adapt the entire Lit Trip Library over the next few months. 

If there's a title we haven't yet fully adapted, let us know the title and we'll prioritize our efforts to fully adapt remaining Lit Trips based upon demand.

You can email your requests to me at UpdateRequest@GoogleLitTrips.org

Fake news, real violence: 'Pizzagate' and the consequences of an Internet echo chamber

Fake news, real violence: 'Pizzagate' and the consequences of an Internet echo chamber | Library and Information DigiLIt CPD | Scoop.it
Millions of people have read about a crazy conspiracy theory called "Pizzagate." An untold number of them actually believe it. One person apparently took matters into his own hands and showed up to the pizza place that the conspiracy theorists say is at the center of the web with guns.
Llandrillo Library's insight:
We need to be supporting our learners to identify and call out fake news stories - to understand echo chambers and the reasons false information is published in this way. Could you confidently to these things too? This link was originally shared through the LIS-INFOLITERACY JISCmail list

Llandrillo Library's insight:
"Making it possible for the state to open your locks in secret means that anyone who works for the state, or anyone who can bribe or coerce anyone who works for the state, can have the run of your life. Cryptographic locks don’t just protect our mundane communications: cryptography is the reason why thieves can’t impersonate your fob to your car’s keyless ignition system; it’s the reason you can bank online; and it’s the basis for all trust and security in the 21st century." 

This is why librarians and information professionals need to be aware of data protection issues for their users and the freedom of service they present.

Pencil by default: the digital skills demanded by the welfare system may baffle Daniel Blake, but he is resourceful, creative and willing to work.
Llandrillo Library's insight:
The issues of literacy and digital literacy raised in this film are evident to many working in the public library sector. It is also evidenced in the FE/HE sector, where access to resources and even teaching time (blended learning) is affected by your literacy/digital literacy skills. This is a thought provoking piece and should lead us all to reflect on our place in the relationship between our users and the information they need.
