HOW TO BUILD YOUR FOCUS - THE SHALLOWS BY NICHOLAS CARR
The Journey  Ajoutée le 16 janv. 2017

When was the last time you felt pure boredom? I doubt it was recent. With this constant bombarding of news & updates, we always have the next thing to click on. I'd suppose, our hunter-gatherer ancestors had times in the day where they'd sit down & do nothing. Perhaps they saw that time as opportunity for inner-contemplation & serene meditation.
[...] Reason is, If you spend time working online you're more prone to click on those catchy links & find yourself procrastinating on social media.
The more you give in to distractions while working, your mind further conditions itself to help you distract yourself, so to speak.

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  :-)

Une  page bien pratique référençant des outils connus et/ou à découvrir pour vérifier des identités, des images, des lieux, etc. Très pratique aussi dans un cadre RP.
