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.

Position Statement on Multimodal Literacies

NCTE Guideline on Multimodal Literacies
Paulo Moekotte's insight:
Sound position statement with the necessary smarts: "An exclusive emphasis on digital literacies is not what most advocates of technology-rich composition advocate. Such an emphasis would limit students' access to other modes of expression."

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.

Een relatie die vaker is en wordt gelegd: inzet van ICT en werkdruk. Volgens dit bericht wordt winst gerealiseerd door o.a. het gebruik van rubrics. Goed om te horen, want naar mening krijgen rubrics in het Nederlands onderwijs niet de aandacht die ze zouden moeten krijgen.

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.
