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.

White House Unveils New ConnectED Effort Focused on Library Access, Content | Audrey Armitage Blog | EdWeek

White House Unveils New ConnectED Effort Focused on Library Access, Content | Audrey Armitage Blog | EdWeek | Library world, new trends, technologies | Scoop.it

President Obama today is announcing a pair of White House initiatives aimed at increasing students' access to public libraries, and boosting the ability of economically disadvantaged students to use the digital resources available in those facilities.

At an appearance at the Anacostia Library in Washington, D.C. on Thursday, the president is expected to put forward a plan, supported by commercial publishers, to provide more than $250 million worth of free e-book content to students from low-income families, along with a second effort meant to give all students in 30 different communities, and eventually nationwide, a library card.

The two efforts are part of the ConnectED program, a White House plan launched in 2013 that has drawn financial support from numerous ed-tech providers and private organizations with the goal of improving digital education and Web connectivity.

Several major publishers, including Macmillan, Simon & Schuster, Penguin Random House, HarperCollins, and Hachette, are supporting the e-book program, and will provide over 10,000 of the most well-known books to students as e-resources.

As part of the e-book effort, nonprofits and librarian networks will work with the New York Public Library to develop an app designed to give low-income families access the newly available digital materials.

Photographer Docmuments What People Are Reading on the NYC Subway

Photographer Docmuments What People Are Reading on the NYC Subway | Library world, new trends, technologies | Scoop.it
When Dutch photographer Reinier Gerritsen turned his lens to people reading on the New York City subway system, he launched a project that proves the power of the printed word is alive and well in the midst of public transportation. Gerritsen spent three years collecting the photos for "The Last Book" project, which was exhibited at New York City’s Julie Saul Gallery and turned into a book. Most readers remained engrossed in the pages as Gerritsen snapped their portraits. A few looked up and shot him curious stares or suspicious glances.
With the precision of a librarian, Gerritsen cataloged the 500 photos on his website by author’s last name. The project encompasses authors with last names beginning with every letter of the alphabet except Q and X. Suzanne Collins, James Patterson and J.K. Rowling were among authors who appeared the most on the subway. Classic works by philosophers, poets and Shakespeare were also surprisingly popular selections. Gerritsen noted that literature…
