From copy cats to child witnesses – the ethics of reporting school shootings

From copy cats to child witnesses – the ethics of reporting school shootings | this curious life | Scoop.it
As Newtown tries to come to terms with the execrable, it isn’t clear if television news has been a help or a hindrance.
Janet Devlin's insight:

'Since Columbine, we’ve learned a lot about what can go wrong with the reporting of school shootings. Enough journalists are sensitive to these lessons to make a difference, or at least to create a useful public debate about the journalism we want to have.'

Dr. Laura Sheneman's curator insight, December 20, 2013 11:04 AM

Think about your role as a librarian and aim to develop these habits.  It will keep us on the cutting edge of transformation.

ASPEL Editor's curator insight, January 14, 5:01 AM

Often times we are faced with the temptation to reach for a fast (and potentially wrongheaded) solution. However, a good strategic leader holds steady, synthesizing information from many sources before developing a viewpoint. If your leader lacks some level of peripheral vision, it can leave your company vulnerable to rivals who detect and act on ambiguous signals. We need strategic leaders who will foster open dialogue, build trust and engage key stakeholders, especially when views diverge. Find out how to become the strategic leader your company needs!

How Connectivity Changes Everything | David Amerland

How Connectivity Changes Everything | David Amerland | this curious life | Scoop.it

In this brand new world of constant information flow our value lies in our ability to help make sense of it all. Whether it’s fiction or non-fiction, books have to do more than simply entertain or inform. They have to empower and transform, meeting real needs and addressing direct concerns in their audience. 

Writers, we used to say, have to also be readers. But now we know that readers who take the time to connect and deeply interact with the writers they like themselves become influencers of the writing process. Writers, these days, need to not just read, but also share and listen. The requirements of the job description have changed somewhat and the end process is not just a book that a writer has wanted to write but one that readers have wanted to read.
