Lecture slides for news literacy at BYU. Based on Center for News Literacy.

Armed with critical-thinking skills, a firm traps of relevant history, plus practical knowledge about the news media, students will learn how to find the reliable information they need to make decisions, take action, or make judgments.

Facebook était condamné, disait-on il y a un an. Et voilà qu'il semble que son orientation ait basculé vers la seconde partie de la mission : non plus être en lien avec ses proches, mais partager ce qui nous intéresse avec le monde.

Mark William's curator insight, July 30, 9:28 AM

“Facebook’s mission is to give people the power to share and make the world more open and connected. People use Facebook to stay connected with friends and family, to discover what’s going on in the world, and to share and express what matters to them.”

Use that money you’re spending now on newsprint, ink, pressmen, trucks, drivers and gasoline and hire more reporters, photographers, videographers, data journalists, software developers, mobile designers, social-media experts, workflow architects, marketing strategists and digital advertising pros. Recognize, like the big tech companies do, that the most valuable thing your digital readers can give you is their data, not their dollars.

Was Content Curation born in a French Hospital 95 Years Ago?

Was Content Curation born in a French Hospital 95 Years Ago? | Journalism and the WEB | Scoop.it
America joined World War I in April, 1917. With tensions building since 1915, President Wilson finally determined that American interests and lives, increasingly threatened by unrestricted submarine warfare on the part of Germans, required military action. War was declared on Germany, and within a few days America joined its allies in the struggle. However, it would be several months before sufficient troop strength could be mobilized. By March of 1918, only 318,000 Americans had arrived in France, and they were severely overmatched at first.

Pourquoi le journalisme en ligne n’a toujours pas de modèle économique | L'Atelier des icônes

Pourquoi le journalisme en ligne n’a toujours pas de modèle économique | L'Atelier des icônes | Journalism and the WEB | Scoop.it

Nième discussion hier soir, avec une étudiante en journalisme, sur les difficultés économiques de la presse. Une fois qu’on a fait le compte de toutes les raisons objectives qui tirent vers le low cost, des chaînes d’info continue au journalisme people en passant par l’indexation des images (et non, pas des amateurs…), on arrive toujours au même constat: l’absence de modèle économique du web..

Rodrigo Mesquita's insight:

 Le problème du modèle économique en ligne est moins celui de la presse que celui des agences de publicité, incapables pour l’instant de dépasser le modèle des médias de masse. De ce côté-là aussi, on voit que les choses commencent à bouger. On le devine, la question du modèle économique ne restera pas éternellement sans réponse.

Publishers are hiring Snapchat specialists

Publishers are hiring Snapchat specialists | Journalism and the WEB | Scoop.it
Snapchat is the buzziest platform for publishers these days, but it’s also the most high-maintenance, with its own CMS, vertical video requirements and unique features like swipes and disappearing content. That’s why many publishers have dedicated staffers to the app. Whether any of this will pay off is a big open question, but for its early adopters, the chance to build awareness with Snapchat’s Gen Y users make it “too big to ignore,” Laundry Service’s Jason Stein said.

Reflections of a Newsosaur: The newspaper crisis, by the numbers

Since hitting that high note in 2005, the industry has undergone a dramatic and traumatic contraction, losing nearly half of its print readership and more than a third of its revenues. With the pre-tax profits of the publicly held publishers cut by 39% since 2003, newsroom staffing has dropped to a historically low level. In spite of the declared determination of most publishers to pivot from print to pixels, the industry's share of the digital advertising market has plunged by more than 50%. 

Rodrigo Mesquita's insight:

A newspaper executive told me a few days ago that some people in the industry hate my continuing coverage of the challenges facing newspapers. For the record, I don’t enjoy writing this stuff any more than newspaper people like reading it. But I do it because I am trying to remind them of the urgent and formidable challenges they face in not just protecting their individual businesses but also in preserving the irreplaceable public trust that newspapers represent.
