At 13, I’ve been noticing something different: Facebook is losing teens lately. And I think I know why.
Ken Morrison's insight:

Regardless of the platform, this young writer appears to be quite media literate.  I am glad that some people are putting thought into the effects of social media.  One takeaway is that some kids feel that "Facebook is trying too hard."

Digital Student Citizenship Poster: When to or NOT to Share a Photo

Digital Student Citizenship Poster: When to or NOT to Share a Photo | Ken's Odds & Ends | Scoop.it

The importance of students being aware of what they share on social media websites. Obviously, pictures are the most shared digital content on such platforms. In Facebook alone millions of pictures are uploaded to it daily. Given this explosive growth of online  photo sharing, we are hard pressed to teach our students and kinds about the ethics behind online photo sharing.

Gaming Literacy: Game Design as a Model for Literacy in the 21st Century -- Eric Zimmerman


Via Jim Lerman, Diana Turner

Jim Lerman's curator insight, May 29, 2013 6:44 PM

From the chapter:

 

"Gaming literacy is an approach to literacy based on game design. My
argument is that there is an emerging set of skills and competencies, a set
of new ideas and practices that are going to be increasingly a part of what itmeans to be literate in the coming century. This essay’s proposal is that
game design is a paradigm for understanding what these literacy needs areand how they might be addressed. I look at three main concepts—systems,play, and design—as key components of this new literacy.

 

"Traditional ideas about literacy have centered on reading and writing—
the ability to understand, exchange, and create meaning through text,
speech, and other forms of language. A younger cousin to literacy studies,
media literacy extended this thinking to diverse forms of media, from
images and music to film, television, and advertising. The emphasis in
media literacy as it evolved during the 1980s was an ideological critique of
the hidden codes embedded in media. Media studies’ scholars ask questions like: Is a given instance of media racist or sexist? Who is creating itand with what agenda? What kinds of intended and unintended messagesand meanings do media contain?"
