How to Research Like a Journalist When the Internet Doesn't Deliver

How to Research Like a Journalist When the Internet Doesn't Deliver | UJ Sciences Librarian: Technology & Innovation | Scoop.it
The internet is full of information, but sometimes what you’re looking for needs a different approach. Whether you’re looking for public records, family trees, or really old archives, it’s time to do some offline digging like an old-school journalist. Here’s how to get started.

Why librarians (and therefore libraries) will always be better than Wikipedia, by Kimberly Matthews

Why librarians (and therefore libraries) will always be better than Wikipedia, by Kimberly Matthews | UJ Sciences Librarian: Technology & Innovation | Scoop.it

"As librarians we protect our services, collections, and patrons from censorship and bias. Simply put- We do not allow it. From too much left or right wing material to too much sci-fi or mystery. At our core we begin from a place of balance, equality, representation, and non-censorship.  This is one of librarianship’s inherent characteristics that draw people to join the profession.

Interestingly I found this today:

Wikipedia Countering Systemic Bias Project

The Wikipedia project suffers systemic bias that naturally grows from its contributors’ demographic groups, manifesting an imbalanced coverage of a subject, thereby discriminating against the less represented demographic groups. …
This project aims to control and (possibly) eliminate the cultural perspective gaps made by the systemic bias, consciously focusing upon subjects and points of view neglected by the encyclopedia as a whole."

What’s New in Digital and Social Media Research: The realities of citizen journalism, and new possibilities for transparency

What’s New in Digital and Social Media Research: The realities of citizen journalism, and new possibilities for transparency | UJ Sciences Librarian: Technology & Innovation | Scoop.it
How "bridging elites" help on Twitter, perceptions of news by a skeptical public, and Wikipedia pages as newsmaking destinations: all that and more in this month’s roundup of the academic literature.

 

Editor’s note: There’s a lot of interesting academic research going on in digital media — but who has time to sift through all those journals and papers?

Our friends at Journalist’s Resource, that’s who. JR is a project of the Shorenstein Center on Media, Politics and Public Policy at the Harvard Kennedy School, and they spend their time examining the new academic literature in media, social science, and other fields, summarizing the high points and giving you a point of entry. Here, John Wihbey sums up the top papers in digital media and journalism this month.

Education 3.0 and the Pedagogy (Andragogy, Heutagogy) of Mobile Learning

Education 3.0 and the Pedagogy (Andragogy, Heutagogy) of Mobile Learning | UJ Sciences Librarian: Technology & Innovation | Scoop.it

Many educators are doing Education 1.0; talking about doing Education 2.0; when they should be planning and implementing Education 3.0. This post compares the developments of the Internet-Web to those of education. The Internet has become an integral thread of the tapestries of most societies throughout the globe. The web influences people’s way of thinking, doing and being; and people influence the development and content of the web.

 This education 3.0 concept combined with Keegan's levels of Ego Development should help educators and students in their question for glory.

Special thanks to Feed the Teacher (Giselle Santos) for sharing this diagram originally posted by Dr. Jackie Gerstein.  

 

The one point I really like is the definition of Education 3.0 - planning and implementing education.  The key is being thoroughly infused and reinvented.
