"Ce billet évoque un petit bouleversement dans la gestion de mon compte Twitter. [...] Ce changement de gestion a une conséquence évidente : le débit de mon fil principal augmente et devient, en conséquence, tout simplement impossible à suivre humainement. Si l’on excepte un petit coup d’œil de temps à autres, autant avouer que j’ai renoncé à sa consultation.[...]"

Le rapporteur de l'ACTA au Parlement européen a recommandé aux parlementaires de rejeter le texte. Il estime que l'accord commercial anti-contrefaçon va forcer les intermédiaires techniques (FAI, hébergeurs) à jouer un rôle qui ne leur sied pas : agir comme une force de police privée au service de la propriété intellectuelle.

"Dear Facebook, Please Don't Ruin Instagram" | Mashable OP-ED

"Dear Facebook, Please Don't Ruin Instagram" | Mashable OP-ED | EDTECH - DIGITAL WORLDS - MEDIA LITERACY | Scoop.it
When the news first broke that Facebook had acquired Instagram for $1 billion, my immediate instinct was dread. I wasn't alone.

Christina Warren -Mashable Entertainment Editor- also says : "Facebook and Instagram | Dammit. Just… dammit.  These things always start out with the best intentions but unless you're Amazon and Zappos they never pan out the way you want.

To be clear – I'm totally happy for the Instagram team – they deserve the success they've found tenfold. I just wish it wasn't Facebook… because no matter how much you say, the reality is different. It just is. The guise of the network becomes different. The guise of the mobile service changes. It shifts.

This isn't a slight at Facebook – I'd feel the same way if Twitter, Google or even Apple bought this company.

Maybe I'm being irrational – I'm sure I am. In the long run, this will enable more people to use Instagram, which is obviously great. And yet. And yet.      $1 billion.       That's some serious money. Like, that's an offer you can't refuse. Good on them. [...]" on http://christina.is/

What Americans Would Give Up For The Internet | Infographics | EDTECH - DIGITAL WORLDS - MEDIA LITERACY | Scoop.it

"[...] Things get really interesting though when you start asking people what they would give up to keep the Internet in their lives. 73% of Americans say they’d give up alcohol. 43% would give up exercise. And 21% would give up sex. (Is that high or low ? Depends, I guess, on your own answer.) Just 10% would give up a car, which hints that most Americans would rather have a car than be celibate.

Internet fait place nette dans la pédagogie

Internet fait place nette dans la pédagogie | EDTECH - DIGITAL WORLDS - MEDIA LITERACY | Scoop.it

" [...] Aussi, loin d'agir comme un narcotique qui paralyse la réflexion estudiantine, internet est un stimulant qui lui ouvre un champ de possibles mobilisant d'abord sa réflexion, puis la sélection des informations les plus pertinentes pour la production de son "devoir".

L'idée qu'il faille apprendre à l'élève à réfléchir avant de se servir d'internet va non seulement à l'encontre de ce que nous constatons, mais elle suppose naïvement que la pensée est indépendante de son médium. A ce compte, autant reprocher à Socrate d'avoir pensé dans un monde essentiellement oral ou à Descartes d'avoir inventé une méthode scientifique dans un monde livresque !

Les enseignants ont toujours traqué les tricheurs, avec plus ou moins d'appétence. Le problème pédagogique est désormais d'une autre nature. La traque sur internet n'a pas plus de chance d'améliorer les connaissances que le bonnet d'âne n'en avait autrefois de convertir l'ivraie en bon grain. Les enseignants ne doivent pas s'inquiéter de voir leur savoir concurrencé par l'apparition d'un nouveau medium : ils doivent l'apprivoiser avec la complicité des élèves s'ils veulent penser avec les nouveaux moyens du bord. Ce n'est pas le numérique qui doit s'adapter aux exercices rhétoriques de l'école, du lycée et de l'université, mais les institutions qui doivent inventer de nouveaux exercices 3.0. Enseignants, encore un effort ! [...]" | Emmanuel Jaffelin, professeur de philosophie en Ile-de-France

"Les œuvres sont menacées sous leurs formes actuelles, mais elles ne sont pas toutes sensibles de la même manière au passage du temps. Cela dépend de la « solidité » (toute relative) de leurs matériaux numériques, ou de la question de savoir si elles peuvent avoir différentes actualisations technologiques tout en étant la même œuvre.
