The Role of Information Literacy in Higher Education | Abdelhamid Nfissi & Aziz El Hassani | Morocco World News | Library world, new trends, technologies | Scoop.it

The tsunami of information in today’s world has urged modern societies to explore and develop new intelligent search skills and behaviors while accessing and using information from different sources.

 

Such skills are known as information literacy (IL) skills. Information literacy (IL) has therefore become a new paradigm and the most critical sets of skills in today's and tomorrow’s advanced information and communication world.

 

According to the UNESCO, the empowerment of people through Media and Information Literacy (MIL) is an important requirement for fostering equitable access to information and knowledge and “promoting free, independent and pluralistic media and information systems.”

Kate Beaton Talks the Appeal of Princesses (And Farting Ponies)

Kate Beaton Talks the Appeal of Princesses (And Farting Ponies) | Library world, new trends, technologies | Scoop.it

If you’re a history nerd and you’ve spent any time whatsoever online, you’ve probably familiar with Kate Beaton’s Hark! A Vagrant comics. Because jokes about Lord Byron and Liszt and the Brontë sisters’ questionable taste in men are great, and hers in particular are hilarious.

This small change could make a big difference for accessible technology | Hayley Tsukayama | WashPost.com

This small change could make a big difference for accessible technology | Hayley Tsukayama | WashPost.com | Library world, new trends, technologies | Scoop.it

Think about how much you rely on your phone and computer every day. Now imagine having to get through your day without being able to use the mouse. Imagine not being to use a touchscreen -- or maybe not being able to see the screen at all. Could you still do your job?

That's what it's like for millions of people with disabilities that prevent them from using basic technology for work and play. And while few would argue that it's a bad idea to build products that address those issues, a lack of awareness often means that even making products functional for people with disabilities is an afterthought.

Tech firms such as Yahoo, Facebook, Dropbox and LinkedIn announced Thursday that they will develop standard language that lets applicants know that having accessibility knowledge is "preferred" to land a job. The move is part of a larger program called "Teaching Accessibility": a joint effort between disability advocates, schools and the tech industry to make all technology accessible from the start.

Remix: Teaching Students to Verify Social Media Content | Anthony Adornato | Mediashift | PBS | Library world, new trends, technologies | Scoop.it

Misinformation can spread like a disease on social media. Journalists and news organizations have taken the bait, reporting inaccurate information gathered from social media. We’ve seen this in cases such as the Boston Marathon bombings and Hurricane Sandy, among many other examples.

“What’s the Real Deal?” is an exercise that teaches students to be critical of information on social media platforms. Students learn how to analyze the credibility of user-generated content, social media sources, and news tips from social media. They also become aware of a major challenge facing journalists — balancing the pressure to publish quickly while upholding traditional news values.

Journalists’ use of social media as a tool for newsgathering, dissemination, and connecting with audiences is the new norm. Students and working journalists can get caught up in the excitement of social media’s speed. However, it’s important for budding journalists to understand the strengths and limitations of social media information. In the sea of all the “noise,” traditional journalistic skills, such as verification and accuracy, are more important now than ever. This exercise teaches students to value these skills while harnessing the potential of social media for journalism.
