Internet giants such as Facebook and Twitter have limited legal obligations, but what could Britain do to make them act?


"Hosts, not publishers? 

 Currently, social media firms including Facebook, YouTube and Twitter operate as hosts, rather than publishers, in the UK. As such, they are exempt from being held legally liable for user-generated content if they act to remove content when notified."

The State of the World’s Children 2017: Children in a Digital World

The State of the World’s Children 2017: Children in a Digital World | Educommunication | Scoop.it
"As the debate about whether the internet is safe for children rages, The State of the World’s Children 2017: Children in a Digital World discusses how digital access can be a game changer for children or yet another dividing line. The report represents the first comprehensive look from UNICEF at the different ways digital technology is affecting children, identifying dangers as well as opportunities. It makes a clear call to governments, the digital technology sector and telecom industries to level the digital playing field for children by creating policies, practices and products that can help children harness digital opportunities and protect them from harm."

A participação das crianças no jornalismo infantojuvenil português e brasileiro

A participação das crianças no jornalismo infantojuvenil português e brasileiro | Educommunication | Scoop.it

"Este trabalho, parte de tese de doutoramento, se concentra na participação das crianças no jornalismo infantil. Buckingham (2009) entende que os meninos e meninas devem exercer os seus direitos de participação, estabelecidos na Convenção sobre os Direitos da Criança (1989), também na área da produção midiática: segundo ele, as novas formas de comunicação on-line que as crianças têm à sua disposição são possíveis formas de assegurar esse direito. Mas as crianças as utilizam para interagir com os jornalistas que escrevem para elas? Para responder a essa questão, entrevistamos 50 crianças de nove a 16 anos de idade, em Portugal e no Brasil. O trabalho mostrou que, para que haja participação, é preciso que as crianças se sintam motivadas a acompanhar com frequência os veículos infantis — o que está atrelado à mediação adulta e à temática abordada pelas publicações. Além disso, dois obstáculos aparecem: a ausência de resposta por parte dos produtores de informação e a preocupação das crianças em expor-se."

Bias, Bullshit and Lies: Audience Perspectives on Low Trust in the Media

Bias, Bullshit and Lies: Audience Perspectives on Low Trust in the Media | Educommunication | Scoop.it
"Even in a world where people increasingly get news from social media, the professional news media is still seen as largely to blame for low trust according to a new report from the Reuters Institute for the Study of Journalism, which examines the underlying reasons for trust and distrust in the news media (and in social media) across nine countries. Bias, spin and hidden agendas come across as the main reasons for lack of trust in the news media along with a perceived decline in journalistic standards driven by greater competition and some online business models. These concerns are strongest with the young and with those on low incomes. Trust in the news that people find in social media is lower still, but similar trends are at play - bias, agendas and low quality information. The report argues that this is largely a function of a model that allows anybody to publish without checks, and algorithms that sometimes favour extreme or contentious content. The study is based on analysing thousands of open-ended responses from the 2017 Reuters Institute Digital News Report, where respondents were asked to give their reasons for low trust in their own words, using open-ended text fields."

Challenges of parental responsibility in the digital age: a global perspective

"Children everywhere are gaining access to the internet – most often via a mobile phone. In many places, too, parents are feeling challenged in their competence, role and authority. Distinctively, internet access is bringing children access also to valued sources of knowledge and connection that their parents may lack. How are parents responding? A digital parenting divide Research in high income countries points to a shift away from restrictive forms of parental mediation such as banning the technology or telling their children off when a problem occurs. Instead, it seems parents are increasingly using enabling forms of mediation such as sharing some online experiences with their children and guiding them in the use of privacy settings, advice services and critical evaluation of online content and behaviour. This shift is influenced by parents’ own growing experience with and expertise in using digital media. It’s also the outcome of several years’ worth of multi-stakeholder efforts to raise parental awareness and encourage their engagement, often led by governments and child welfare organisations."

"This paper reports a review of research literature on young children’s (aged 0-8 years old) digital literacy practices in the home. The review contributes to one of the aims of the COST DigiLitEY programme by identifying the current state of knowledge on young children’s digital literacy and multimodal practices in homes and communities, including synthesising research on parental support of children’s digital literacy development” (WG1 Mission Statement). Accordingly, the purpose of this review is to 1) summarise current research knowledge in the area of young children’s digital literacy practices in the home, 2) identify key messages for educational researchers, parents and policy makers, and 3) propose key research questions in the field for future study. A total of 33 studies published between 2005 and 2015 were selected for the review."

We need this kind of reviewing of literature very  much.

Why These Friendly Robots Can’t be Good Friends to Our Kids

Why These Friendly Robots Can’t be Good Friends to Our Kids | Educommunication | Scoop.it

"Jibo the robot swivels around when it hears its name and tilts its touchscreen face upward, expectantly. “I am a robot, but I am not just a machine,” it says. “I have a heart. Well, not a real heart. But feelings. Well, not human feelings. You know what I mean.” Actually, I’m not sure we do. And that’s what unsettles me about the wave of “sociable robots” that are coming online. The new releases include Jibo, Cozmo, Kuri and Meccano M.A.X. Although they bear some resemblance to assistants such as Apple’s Siri, Google Home and Amazon’s Alexa (Amazon chief executive Jeff Bezos also owns The Washington Post), these robots come with an added dose of personality. They are designed to win us over not with their smarts but with their sociability. They are marketed as companions. And they do more than engage us in conversation — they feign emotion and empathy."

Media Literacy and Fake News

Media Literacy and Fake News | Educommunication | Scoop.it

"Part of my charter as the tech teacher is to facilitate learning about digital citizenship and online research. In the past I’ve used lessons from Common Sense Media and really enjoyed them. I especially love their lessons on copyright / fair use and maintaining your digital footprint. I’ve had a few conversations with kids lately, including my own daughters, that have given me a sense of urgency when it comes to media literacy. Students love to show me funny things they encounter online and exciting or outrageous stories. Sometimes they’re real but exaggerated. Sometimes they’re total hoaxes. One event that really made me feel a sense of urgency was when President Trump re-tweeted some clickbait videos with inflammatory titles against Muslims. "

Making the internet a safer (and better) place for children

Making the internet a safer (and better) place for children | Educommunication | Scoop.it

The internet has quickly become a necessity rather than a luxury in children’s lives. Parents, educators and governments are struggling to keep up with the risks and opportunities it brings. Sonia Livingstone takes a critical look at the plans for an Internet Safety Strategy. She argues that digital literacy needs to be taught in a way that extends far beyond the concept of ‘e-safety’ and limiting screen time. Websites and apps should normally be designed with children in mind. Children and adults alike need a single point of contact for complaints and concerns – not just an ombudsman for under-18s.""
