Hope just this once won't hurt... This app can only be used on iProducts and won't do on any others -that's mainly why I usually avoid branding such resources. Some of these are real gems though and my soft spot for Shakespeare has got me to share this one with you ;o)

Valider l'info | Education aux media - Semaine de la presse 2013

Comment valider l'information à l'heure des réseaux et d'Internet ? Support de cours pour lycéens dans le cadre de la semaine de la presse 2013
Monica Mirza's insight:

A l'ère du numérique et du virtuel, une éducation aux media est indispensable, et la validation de l'information en est part essentielle.

L'on peut attirer l'attention des élèves/étudiants tout particulièrement sur la diapo n° 9 : "RETWITTER, C'EST RECOMMANDER [...]" : véhiculer  une'information c'est en quelque sorte la déclarer valide en son nom propre et engager sa "CREDIBILITE". La présentation illustre clairement les dommages collatéraux d'une information erronée, mais transmise sans validation : le 'bon' vieux rouage de la rumeur -sans fondement...

Et ce, quelle que soit le medium de l'information (Fbook, Pinterest, Scoop.it...)  -à souligner aux élèves/étudiants.

Bref, un diaporama bien construit et efficace sur le fond, mais aussi sur la forme  :-)

Monica Mirza's curator insight, January 26, 2013 10:29 AM

Had been wilfing on the web for a while to search for resources around the music industry and its giants and stumbled on this : a pleasant -and well-known- tune.. that had me shiver. Mark Read's got a nice voice  -by the way, how can it be his ?!! His imitation's of Elton John has got so close...

The song sounds thrilling -witty lyrics filled with emotion, irony... and possible ESL plans topics !

To me the song makes a smart example to illustrate a lesson plan on parody, along with other literary figures. Might also be considered an interesting resource to work on the digital age possible cons or casualties -food for thought to help our students' debate for or against an "all digital world".

Part of the English-speaking world civilisation, the British "Voix de son Maître" [didn't know HMV was its primary name !] illustrates the evolution of music industry / unemployment in the UK / ...

Well done, Mr Piano Man, you made my day :-)

 

Judith Morais's comment, January 26, 2013 10:59 PM
Hi Monica. I loved this find. Its a great song, and like you said, it will be great for a lesson on parodies. Wonder if we will be able to get the words- useful for ESL learners.

Digital tools 'to save languages' | ... most interesting :) | EDTECH - DIGITAL WORLDS - MEDIA LITERACY | Scoop.it

 

Facebook, YouTube and even texting will be the salvation of many of the world's endangered languages, scientists believe.

----------

K. David Harrison (associate professor of linguistics at Swarthmore College and a National Geographic Fellow) explains that languages are the human knowledge base : everything human beings know is encoded in languages and cultures. Harrison also tells about his dictionary project : the starting point is...  any language of the world ! These online dictionaries started about a decade ago.

Plaisir et apprentissage sur les réseaux numériques | J. FRAYSSINHES

Plaisir et apprentissage sur les réseaux numériques | J. FRAYSSINHES | EDTECH - DIGITAL WORLDS - MEDIA LITERACY | Scoop.it

"Apprendre tout au long de sa vie est une nécessité pour chacun d’entre nous, afin que nous conservions un haut niveau d’employabilité. Mais qui dit nécessité, dit souvent : contrainte, obligation, astreinte à faire quelque chose que nous n’avons pas obligatoirement choisi, et dans ce cas, cet apprentissage « contraint » s’effectue souvent sans réel « plaisir ».

D’où la question : Peut-on concilier plaisir et apprentissage ? L’interactivité sur les réseaux numériques lors d’un apprentissage en FOAD peut-il être un facteur de plaisir afin de combattre l’obligation de se former tout au long de sa vie ? [...]"
