Why All the Chatter About #EdChat?

 

How administrators can sift through the noise to find their voice on Twitter and refine their personal learning network.

 

By:Marion Herbert

 

District Administration, April 2012

 

On Feb. 23, Steven Anderson, instructional technologist for Winston-Salem/Forsyth County (N.C.) Schools, celebrated his three-year anniversary—on Twitter. Anderson began exploring Twitter in 2009 as a way of finding people with similar interests, opposing views, and resources on integrating technology in the classroom to share with teachers and staff in his district of 57,000 students.

How To Verify Content from Social Media: A Good Guide

How To Verify Content from Social Media: A Good Guide | Public Education in the 21st Century | Scoop.it

Robin Good: If you are a journalist, a reporter, or a professional news curator, you MUST read this.

 

Excerpted from the guide: "This how-to features advice from a panel of experts on the key considerations, questions and tools journalists should have in mind when carrying out verification of content that surfaces via social media, be it a news tip, an image, a piece of audio or video.

 

The process covers three main stages: monitoring of social networks and the online community before news breaks, checking the content when it comes into play and subsequently reporting that content once verified. The comprehensive advice outlined in this how-to guide offers practical steps, specific questions and cross-checks journalists can make at each stage, as well as online tools to support them."

 

...to summarise, the top tips from our panel of experts on an effective verification process from start to finish are:

 

Monitor across platforms (including Facebook, YouTube, Twitter, Soundcloud, AudioBoo, Bambuser)
  Spot and understand trends (using tools like Hootsuite, Tweetdeck and Trendsmap to create lists and identify trending topics)
  Build a network of contacts before the story breaks and limit the stress
  Use online tools to examine evolution of images (including TinEye, Google Images and WolframAlfra)
  Verifying sources – speak to them and cross reference answers with social data
  Verifying sources – look at social media history across platforms
  Use Whois tools to verify websites
  Check for photoshopping or repetition in images
  Apply the Too Good To Be True test
  Harness online discussion boards and experts (use sites like Snope to spot urban myths and common hoaxes early on)
  Question edited footage
  How urgent is it – could more steps be taken to verify before you publish?
  Crowdsourcing – 'be judicious' about how you send out unconfirmed information
  Consider any permissions and crediting which may be necessary
  Clearly communicate the level of verification a story has been given
  Made a mistake or new information come to light? Issue a clear and networked correction

 

Invaluable. Very informative. Useful. 9/10
