Opinion | How Evil Is Tech? | Educommunication | Scoop.it

"Not long ago, tech was the coolest industry. Everybody wanted to work at Google, Facebook and Apple. But over the past year the mood has shifted. Some now believe tech is like the tobacco industry — corporations that make billions of dollars peddling a destructive addiction. Some believe it is like the N.F.L. — something millions of people love, but which everybody knows leaves a trail of human wreckage in its wake."

Cómo educar a los niños del siglo XXI | Educommunication | Scoop.it

"Si ya nos pasa a los adultos, que no entendemos casi nada de lo que ocurre en estos tiempos de disrupción global e incertidumbre, ¿cómo hacen los críos para procesar esa ingente cantidad de datos que cada día les pasa por ese nuevo apéndice que es para ellos su teléfono móvil? ¿Cómo enseñarles a salir adelante en un mundo volátil, incierto, complejo y ambiguo que no parece que vaya a estabilizarse? De todo esto reflexionaron los expertos internacionales reunidos durante la semana pasada en la Cumbre Mundial de Educación celebrada en Doha (Qatar)"

From Peppa Pig to Trump, the web is shaping us. It’s time we fought back

From Peppa Pig to Trump, the web is shaping us. It’s time we fought back | Educommunication | Scoop.it

"Forget the canary in the coal mine: these days, the warning comes from a cartoon pig in a dentist’s chair. And it’s no exaggeration to say it’s pointing to a threat facing all humanity. The pig in question is Peppa, beloved by children everywhere. What could be safer than settling a child in front of a few Peppa Pig videos, served up in succession by YouTube, knowing they’ll be innocently amused while the adults chat among themselves?"

Cyberbabble: screens and young people’s mental health

Cyberbabble: screens and young people’s mental health | Educommunication | Scoop.it

"In the past couple of years, there’s been something of a shift in the public debate about children and digital media. The narrow obsession with risk and harm has to some extent been displaced by a broader emphasis on mental health. To some extent, this has to be a welcome development. For a long time, public discussions of young people’s relations with online media were dominated by melodramatic concerns about paedophiles and pornography – concerns undoubtedly stoked by a massively-funded internet safety industry. On the face of it, the focus on mental health appears to provide a somewhat broader approach, and to encompass a wider set of issues. However, there are some fundamental problems here, not just about the evidence that is used to support such arguments, but also with the way the issue is framed and defined."

Canada’s privacy watchdog has published a research paper on privacy enhancing technologies | Educommunication | Scoop.it

"As privacy concerns continue to blossom the world over, the Office of the Privacy Commissioner of Canada (OPC), has published a research paper on privacy enhancing technologies (PET). The paper is quick to establish four simple rejoinders. It doesn’t list limitations, weaknesses and security implications; it doesn’t validate any claims made by individuals arguing for or against specific PETs; it doesn’t compare and contrast any existing PETs; and it doesn’t outline or recommend how to use any specific PET.

Don't accept at face value everything you read

"When it comes to media literacy, the most important thing is not to accept at face value everything you read, hear or see. While some sources are better than others, there’s no such thing as an infallible news source. That seems obvious, yet we fall for these fake stories over and over again. 
We know why we do this, don’t we? It’s because we want to believe anything that reinforces our world view, our own very special collection of biases. Once any of us has arrived at a conclusion on something, it’s very hard to change that conclusion. 
A lot of people – I consider myself one of these sorts – want to believe that if you just present the facts to anyone in a commonsense, understandable way, the facts will always persuade. It simply isn’t true. It isn’t true of me, and it isn’t true of you. 
Almost universally we all have a bad case of confirmation bias – the tendency to believe only that information that confirms our existing set of beliefs or values. We are very good at finding errors in the arguments of people who disagree with us, but we’re terrible at spotting errors in our own arguments. (The next time you have a few spare hours, Google the research of Hugo Mercier and go to town.) 
We play games that delude ourselves and confuse others. A longtime favorite now practiced by nearly everyone is called the “whataboutism.” I also refer to this as “yeahbuttism” or, “IknowyouarebutwhatamIism.” As soon as we hear something that makes us uncomfortable or with which we disagree, we throw out, “Yeah, but what about …” and we bring up, oh, I don’t know, Benghazi, groping, emails, blah, blah, blah. It’s much easier to go on the counterattack with an unrelated accusation than to have a reasoned conversation. 
What does this have to do with media literacy? Just pay attention. When any public figure starts to get into trouble, the first tactic in response is a big, fat, “whatboutism.” Oddly enough, it seems to work, serving to distract us long enough until the next shiny scandalous news item pops up."

Cinema e educação: diálogo possível

"“O cinema, em qualquer campo em que seja aproveitado, desenvolvido, produzido ou consumido, é sempre educativo e formativo. É formal, na medida em que a sala de projeção é o espaço da socialização e divulgação do filme; ao mesmo tempo é não-formal, pois é espaço de alteridade em relação à escola e, também, informal, pois é espaço de fruição singular e plural, porque é grupal.” (Marco Scarassatti)"

Articuler les dimensions constitutives de l’éducation aux médias

Articuler les dimensions constitutives de l’éducation aux médias | Educommunication | Scoop.it
Este artículo presenta un análisis crítico de la literatura anglosajona relativa a la educación sobre los medios, a la vez que se muestran las dimensiones y las particularidades sobre dicho particular. Caracteriza la educación sobre los medios como un área de estudio particular, reciente, y en rápido crecimiento. El campo está constituido por saberes teóricos, prácticas pedagógicas, competencias específicas y por políticas públicas. Dichos elementos son presentados y analizados. Además, este artículo considera tres críticas sobre los textos académicos al respecto. En primer lugar, existe una confusión conceptual creciente en lo relativo a la organización de los saberes y de las competencias que se esperan desarrollar con las prácticas pedagógicas utilizadas en la educación sobre los medios. En segundo lugar, los textos muestran dificultades para articular coherentemente las dimensiones constitutivas del campo. Finalmente, el análisis de políticas públicas y particularmente el de los currícula escolares, se muestra incompleto. Puede concluirse que resulta necesario desarrollar los conocimientos sobre los contenidos curriculares así como las prácticas movilizadas en el medio escolar.

Contribuições das áreas de educação e ensino para o desenvolvimento da educomunicação

"Neste artigo buscamos demonstrar a relevância dos programas de pós-graduação nas áreas de educação e ensino para a consolidação da educomunicação. Para isso, realizamos uma revisão integrativa de literatura, buscando teses e dissertações no Banco de Teses e Dissertações da Capes e no Banco Digital de Teses e Dissertações do Instituto Brasileiro de Informação em Ciência e Tecnologia com a palavra-chave “educomunicação”. Obtivemos inicialmente 241 trabalhos, dos quais 102 foram produzidos em programas das áreas desejadas. Concluímos que esses programas representam uma parcela significativa na produção acadêmica total relacionada à educomunicação e apresentam padrões semelhantes. Defendemos, assim, que eles desempenham papel de grande importância no desenvolvimento do campo."

I watched 1000 hours of YouTube kids content and this is what happened

"The multicolored slurry of user generated content that for years has been successfully netting millions of kids’ eyeballs on YouTube by remixing popular cartoon characters to crudely act out keyword search scenarios leered into wider public view this week, after writer James Bridle penned a scathing Medium post arguing the content represents “a kind of violence inherent in the combination of digital systems and capitalist incentives”. What do you get if you endlessly recombine Spiderman and the Joker with Elsa from Frozen and lashings of product placement for junk food brands like McDonalds?"

Tim Berners-Lee on the future of the web: 'The system is failing'

Tim Berners-Lee on the future of the web: 'The system is failing' | Educommunication | Scoop.it

"Sir Tim Berners-Lee’s optimism about the future of the web is starting to wane in the face of a “nasty storm” of issues including the rollback of net neutrality protections, the proliferation of fake news, propaganda and the web’s increasing polarisation. The inventor of the world wide web always maintained his creation was a reflection of humanity – the good, the bad and the ugly. But Berners-Lee’s vision for an “open platform that allows anyone to share information, access opportunities and collaborate across geographical boundaries” has been challenged by increasingly powerful digital gatekeepers whose algorithms can be weaponised by master manipulators."

"Journalists working for Facebook say the social media site’s fact-checking tools have largely failed and that the company has exploited their labor for a PR campaign. Several fact checkers who work for independent news organizations and partner with Facebook told the Guardian that they feared their relationships with the technology corporation, some of which are paid, have created a conflict of interest, making it harder for the news outlets to scrutinize and criticize Facebook’s role in spreading misinformation."
