"Media literacy is NOT media bashing. The media exist, they are, and they will continue to play an important role in our lives.  Media are enjoyable. Media are frightening. Media are informative. Media are misleading. But regardless, media are omnipresent. That’s why it’s incumbent upon us to understand our relationship with media and to actively engage with it.Media literacy is NOT telling others what to think or believe. Instead, media literacy provides the tools of critical thinking – a methodology for learning and teaching critical thinking skills – that empower individuals to make their own choices in a hopefully more informed way.Media literacy is NOT fostering cynicism, nor is it about being a Pollyanna. Media literacy encourages a healthy skepticism through a process of inquiry. It is through asking questions that we find answers.Media literacy is NOT just using media to teach. Media literacy provides a distinct pedagogy based on the Five Core Concepts (link) of media literacy. These Five Core Concepts apply to both deconstruction and construction of media, and therein lie their power to provide the process skills that are so needed in learning to be wise consumers, producers and participants in the media world."

Internet privacy as important as human rights, says UN's Navi Pillay

Internet privacy as important as human rights, says UN's Navi Pillay | Technology systems | Scoop.it
Navi Pillay compares uproar over mass surveillance to response that helped defeat apartheid during Today programme

 

The UN general assembly unanimously voted last week to adopt a resolution, introduced by Germany and Brazil, stating that "the same rights that people have offline must also be protected online, including the right to privacy". Brazil's president, Dilma Rousseff, and the German chancellor, Angela Merkel , were among those spied on, according to the documents leaked by Snowden.

 

The resolution called on the 193 UN member states "to review their procedures, practices and legislation regarding the surveillance of communications, their interception and collection of personal data, with a view to upholding the right to privacy of all their obligations under international human rights law". It also directed Pillay to publish a report on the protection and promotion of privacy "in the context of domestic and extraterritorial surveillance ... including on a mass scale".

 

She told Berners-Lee that it was "very important that governments now want to discuss the matters of mass surveillance and right to privacy in a serious way".
