Mapping Media Literacy Practices and Actions in EU28 | Educommunication | Scoop.it
"So what is Europe doing to encourage our media literacy? What measures are being taken at national and European levels to improve our critical appreciation and understanding of the mass media? The European Audiovisual Observatory, part of the Council of Europe in Strasbourg, has just published a brand new study - Mapping of media literary practices and actions in EU - 28 - free to download by clicking on the button above. This study has been financed by the European Commission with the goal of analysing the various media literacy initiatives on a national or regional level in order to provide an overview of what is currently being undertaken.

Hard Questions: Social Media and Democracy | Facebook Newsroom | Educommunication | Scoop.it
What effect does social media have on democracy? This is a large and complex question with numerous aspects to consider — from social media's role in connecting people with information and giving them a voice in the democratic process, to concerns about ad transparency, echo chambers and foreign actors' efforts to compromise discourse.

Twitter and Facebook have very different ideas about “fake news.” One of them is terribly wrong.

Twitter and Facebook have very different ideas about “fake news.” One of them is terribly wrong. | Educommunication | Scoop.it

"On Friday, Twitter published an update on their review of election-related activity. Here’s the short version: Over the course of its investigation, the company identified 1,062 additional accounts associated with the notorious Russian troll farm known as the Internet Research Agency, bringing the total number of IRA-linked accounts up to 3,814. During the ten weeks leading up to the 2016 election, these accounts posted 175,993 tweets, roughly 8.4 percent of which were election-related. Twitter also identified 13,512 Russia-based bot accounts, for a total of 50,258. In all (again, according to Twitter), 677,775 users in the United States interacted with one of these accounts during election season. (...)  What’s interesting about Twitter’s announcement aren’t the numbers or percentages or tallies, but rather what it says about how the company views itself."

In the coming months, what Alvisi teaches will become part of the national curriculum for more than 4.2 million Italian middle and high school students. Similar courses are popping up across Europe, Asia, and the United States, where students dissect online content to determine its authenticity. "

Selective Exposure to Misinformation: Consumption of Fake News During the 2016 U.S. Presidential Campaign

"Though some warnings about online “echo chambers” have been hyperbolic, tendencies toward selective exposure to politically congenial content are likely to extend to misinformation and to be exacerbated by social media platforms. We test this prediction using data on the factually dubious articles known as “fake news.” Using unique data combining survey responses with individual-level web trac histories, we estimate that approximately 1 in 4 Americans visited a fake news website from October 7-November 14, 2016. Trump supporters visited the most fake news websites, which were overwhelmingly pro-Trump. However, fake news consumption was heavily concentrated among a small group — almost 6 in 10 visits to fake news websites came from the 10% of people with the most conservative online information diets. We also find that Facebook was a key vector of exposure to fake news and that fact-checks of fake news almost never reached its consumers."

"(...)  les vidéos de la série Déclic’ Critique qui sont un travail journalistique de qualité et abordent des thèmes intéressants ont un défaut majeur : celui de prétendre être des ressources pédagogiques. Il manque clairement la mise en pratique pédagogique élaborée par des enseignants. (...) Pour ne pas nous arrêter à ce constat critique, nous vous proposons ici une ébauche de ce que devrait être selon nous une démarche pédagogique appuyée sur une de ces vidéos. Nous ne prétendons pas que ce qui suit est parfait, abouti et complet, nos commentaires sont bien évidemment ouverts à toute suggestion d’amélioration.

"Even people under 18 would probably say we adults are getting smarter in the way we’re viewing cyberbullying (we could ask them [#stuvoice @stu_voice]!). That is, if they knew there’s growing consensus among researchers in many countries that “cyberbullying” isn’t the most useful term for online hurtful behavior and may be inhibiting what we can learn from young people about what’s harmful to them – that we need to find out from youth themselves what hurts them and to what degree it happens online."

De nombreuses personnalités publiques et même quelques joueurs du Canadien de Montréal se sont prêtés au jeu au cours des derniers jours. Toutefois, Google Arts & Culture suscite également des inquiétudes. Des internautes craignent notamment que le véritable objectif de Google avec cet outil soit de remplir sa base de données de reconnaissance faciale."

What (if anything) do Facebook’s News Feed changes mean for fake news?

What (if anything) do Facebook’s News Feed changes mean for fake news? | Educommunication | Scoop.it

"Less is more? Facebook, as you certainly know by now, announced last week that it’s making changes to News Feed. Posts from friends and family are in; content from Pages (including publishers) is out. There are a lot of questions about what this means for publishers. There are also questions about what it means for the spread of fake news on the platform. — “While it may cut down incidental exposure to misinformation, the changes could, in some cases, only harden filter bubbles with a steady stream of content from people with similar ideologies. Meanwhile, a retrenchment from News Feed into more walled-off Groups and communities could exacerbate exposure to misinformation.” (Charlie Warzel, BuzzFeed)"

Students must diversify their media consumption and consider bias | Educommunication | Scoop.it

"In order for a society to flourish, the public must be informed and active. In the US, citizens are lucky enough to live under the First Amendment, which protects free speech and allows criticism of the government. However, free press does not prevent the spread of misinformation, and different media outlets often contradict, leave information out or lean toward a desired audience."

Industrias culturales y composición de los personajes en las series de animación infantil emitidas en España

"Introducción: Uno de los contenidos audiovisuales que más ha consumido el público infantil español han sido las series de dibujos animados. Metodología: Para la realización de esta investigación se han analizado 352 series de animación infantil y 432 personajes protagonistas desde los inicios de la programación televisiva en España hasta el 2015. Los datos se obtuvieron y compararon de webs distintas especializadas en el tema. Al tratarse en su mayoría de datos nominales, se emplearon principalmente las pruebas de chi-cuadrado como medida estadística y el uso de tablas y coeficientes de contingencia. Resultados y conclusiones: Una vez que se analizaron las distintas variables, los resultados muestran diferencias significativas detectadas entre la composición de la serie (edad, morfología, género y estética de los personajes) y factores como la nacionalidad o el año de producción. Se detecta una élite de productoras con patrones culturales marcados y diferenciados especialmente en las producciones de EE. UU, Japón y España, entre otros resultados relevantes."

Can you keep your kids safe watching YouTube? | Educommunication | Scoop.it

"How much inappropriate content are children encountering on YouTube? With a huge amount of content uploaded each minute, YouTube’s content regulations can be less rigorous than those of conventional TV broadcasters, and the format to complain about content is not always obvious. In this post, David R Brake outlines some suggestions for policy change, user interface, and advice for parents on these YouTube problems. David is an alumnus of the Media department at LSE and his research interests include digital divides and digital media literacy, privacy in online contexts, mediated interpersonal interaction, the political economy of the social web and other internet applications, online journalism and the interconnections between new media, the mass medias and politics."

Infancias y medios: atención a las voces de los niños y las niñas

Infancias y medios: atención a las voces de los niños y las niñas | Educommunication | Scoop.it

"Este artículo recoge elementos de dos estudios empíricos realizados con niños y niñas entre 4 y 12 años de la ciudad de Campinas (São Paulo, Brasil), mapeando sus relaciones con los medios y cuestionando las representaciones comunes alrededor de ellos, sobre todo a partir del marco teórico centrado en la llamada pedagogía de la infancia y los posibles vínculos entre la sociología de la infancia y la psicología histórico-cultural. Ambos estudios fueron realizados con una perspectiva cualitativa y las principales fuentes para la producción de datos fueron las conversaciones con los niños y niñas, con algunos adultos (padres o profesores) y/o la observación de campo (registros fotográficos de juegos y notas en un cuaderno de campo). Los principales aspectos analizados, a partir de la escucha de los niños y niñas, revelan una complejidad de elementos para la construcción de indicadores. Sin embargo, también señalan que los artefactos y/o contactos con los medios digitales constituyen marcas importantes con respecto a la constitución y la pluralidad de las infancias – sus deseos, juguetes, creaciones y fantasías – a veces similares a las generaciones anteriores, otras completamente diferentes, lo que impulsa a los investigadores y educadores hacia nuevas vías de investigación. "

Nota: está abierto el plazo para la recepción de artículos para el Volumen 2 de la revista, bien en su sección monográfica (dedicada a “los derechos de ciudadanía de niños, niñas y adolescentes”) o bien en la sección de miscelánea.
