Paulo Moekotte's insight:

Media (messages) can be decoded. Kids should learn how to pose the right 'deconstruction' questions in order to 'see through' messages.

Media Literacy
The world around us is reshaped by emerging social settings and new behavioral patterns. Our daily language evolves in order for us to be able to understand and deliberate new social and cultural practices. Children need to be educated for entering and co-shaping this world.

EU Digital Divide Infographic | Digital Agenda for Europe | European Commission

EU Digital Divide Infographic | Digital Agenda for Europe | European Commission | Media Literacy | Scoop.it
This infographic explains the existing Digital Divide in the EU and the tools to close the gap.
Paulo Moekotte's insight:

Should the money talk? Are the sole means financial in nature? The accompanying report (http://goo.gl/Tjey16) shows some interesting figures but also little insight in solutions that go beyond access and skills. 

How about the attitude of low educated towards digital media as a resource that can be used to improve one's social and economc situation and chances? Does attitude follow skills (knowing how means knowing why and when) or does it precede skills (should I believe everything I read and see;what's in it for me)?

 

The report that gives us the first complete set of indicators for digital competence, published last May (http://goo.gl/Gm1IaD) cites the EU definition extensively: ...   the confident and critical use of information Society technology (IST) for work, leisure, learning and communication,"

But again, no indicaiton of how to raise the awareness and foster the attitude among low educated. 


Attitude however should not be left out of the approach as experts concluded last year from a Delphi study (http://goo.gl/w7ayA3). 


"The picture of digital competence that  f from the input of so many experts covers knowledge, skills, and attitudes as well as references to purpose, domain, and level."


This means also bringing in the social and cultural contexts. That's good to see as I'm with Paulo Celot on this, who put it like this in an EAVI-report:

"We recommend fostering a concept of media literacy clearly including social, ethical and cultural aspects as wel as the economic one." (http://goo.gl/p5Wvbh)


The Delphi study further provides some useful insights and, alas, also some unresolved issues.

The Learning Curve 2014 | Pearson

The Learning Curve 2014 | Pearson | Media Literacy | Scoop.it
The report outlines the main findings and outcomes from the research data, drawing on extensive desk research as well as in-depth interviews conducted with 16 educational experts.
Paulo Moekotte's insight:

The task of assessing these skills is unlikely to be straightforward, nor are the results predictable. Data from the Programme for the International Assessment of Adult Competencies (PIAAC) on problem-solving skills in a technology-rich environment found that the economic return from having these abilities is lower than from having advanced literacy or numeracy, especially in terms of higher individual wages. Eric Hanushek, the Paul and Jean Hanna senior fellow at Stanford University, notes that more detailed study is needed: “We know that in the highest technology parts of society – which use skills the most – problem-solving is important, but we don’t know how to measure it very precisely or necessarily how to develop [these skills] per se.”

Impact of social media in education - eCampus News

Impact of social media in education - eCampus News | Media Literacy | Scoop.it
According to this infographic, college students love using social media but, like their professors, can also find it to be a distraction in the classroom.
Paulo Moekotte's insight:

But for all of social media’s benefits, some professors are still wary of the medium. According to the results of a survey of 8,000 faculty members conducted by Babson Survey Research Group and Pearson, more than half of faculty use social media in a professional context, a ten percent jump from last year’s 45 percent. Slightly more than 70 percent use social media for personal purposes.

At the same time, only four out of 10 faculty members reported using social media in the classroom.

Nearly 60 percent of the respondents said that online and mobile technologies create a better learning environment, but more than half of faculty said they think the technologies are more distracting than helpful for academic use.There is evidence to support those concerns.

Insightful critique and right on the mark when it comes to the constitutive role of technology with regard to the powers of the human mind (cf. Doug Engelbart, 1962). I would declare any educational setting or maker space, a 'space of possibilities' in which playfulness and creativity can be fostered through modeling.

The section entitled moving past corporate Facebook speak is intriguing. Are we acknowledging that corporate aims and educational aims are not always congruent with each other.

 

The key questions are sound and point us to the larger question about our relationship with technology. Do we enter into these relationships freely and with choice?

Valerie Hill's curator insight, March 31, 2014 6:26 PM

Digital citizenship has become essential and (IMHO) most social media is trivial self-promoting fluff.  Of course, there is the occasional long lost relative or well-deserving viral story buried under hundreds of posts.  Educators certainly must model best practices.  Read "The Circle" if you are interested in the pitfalls of social media.

Lesgeven onder een vergrootglas

Paulo Moekotte's insight:

Lesgeven onder een vergrootglas

 

In het laatste nummer van het tijdschrift Onderwijsinnovatie van de OUNL staat een interessant artikel over het gebruik van social media van de hand van Alf Moens, medewerker van Surf.

Hieronder een paar citaten die de strekking en de boodschap van het artikel verduidelijken.

 

"In het klassikaal onderwijs is het gebruik van sociale media nog een niche. In het online onderwijs kan men bijna niet meer zonder en daar zien we klassikaal en online onderwijs dichter naar elkaar toe schuiven. Bij de interactie tussen docent en student buiten de vaste lestijden worden steeds vaker ook sociale media ingezet."

 

"De early adopters herkennen nieuwe technologie die potentie heeft, bijvoorbeeld de potentie om iets in het onderwijsproces eenvoudiger te maken, om het leerproces te verbeteren, of om van een aansluit- of koppelingsprobleem af te zijn. Een deel van deze nieuwe ontwikkelingen zal uiteindelijk main stream worden."

 

"Naast de main stream is er ook nog een groep die minder affiniteit heeft voor technologie en die die technologie ook liever uit de weg gaat. Ook hier moet rekening mee gehouden worden bij de introductie van nieuwe technologie."

 

"Met het gebruik van sociale media en de toename van online onderwijs zal er opnieuw nagedacht moeten worden over contacttijd, of liever nog, zal er nagedacht moeten worden over de factoren die begeleiding van studenten adequaat maken."

 

"Wanneer een onderwijsinstelling overweegt om sociale media in het onderwijsproces in te zetten, moet ook rekening gehouden worden met deelnemers die geen toestemming geven om gegevens over hun handelen te verzamelen en te analyseren."

 

"Veel van het gebruik van deze nieuwe technologie wordt vastgelegd, vaak zonder dat de gebruiker zich dit bewust is. Wat betekent dit voor de privacy van de betrokkenen?"

 

"Niet alle docenten zijn even happig om bij nacht en ontij te reageren op berichten van studenten, laat staan dat zij zich willen of kunnen verdiepen in het ‘social-media-platform-van-de-week’."

Texts, Snapchats, Instagram: Translating Teens’ Online Behavior

Texts, Snapchats, Instagram: Translating Teens’ Online Behavior | Media Literacy | Scoop.it
“How much surveillance should parents have over their teenagers' social media lives? Why are kids' online roles so different from their realities? How does technology change the way teens relate to... [[ This is a content summary only.”
Paulo Moekotte's insight:
Social steganography uses countless linguistic and cultural tools, including lyrics, in-jokes, and culturally specific references to encode messages that are functionally accessible but simultaneously mean­ingless. Some teens use pronouns while others refer to events, use nicknames, and employ predetermined code words to share gossip that lurking adults can’t interpret. Many teens write in ways that will blend in and be invisible to or misinterpreted by adults. Whole con­versations about school gossip, crushes, and annoying teachers go unnoticed as teens host conversations that are rendered meaningless to outside observers.
