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. This is the first major mapping exercise to survey the field in Europe."

Educomunicação: práticas e perspetivas - uma análise das atividades do programa de iniciação à docência 

"Cada dia mais, faz-se necessário a adequação dos professores com as novas tecnologias, para obter-se êxito no processo de ensino – aprendizagem. A junção entre Educação e Comunicação, pode ser a porta de entrada para essa adequação, tendo em vista, que esse método de ensinar, proporciona aos alunos, contato com assuntos que fazem parte da realidade, na qual eles estão inseridos. Os professores devem desgarrar-se de seus livros didáticos, e apostar nesta nova forma de transmitir conhecimento. Neste trabalho, discutiremos sobre como os gestores da educação, devem desenvolver estudos, propostas, produtos e pesquisas interdisciplinares, que problematizem os aspectos referentes à interface entre mídias, educação e comunicação e suas relações com as tecnologias. Sempre, partindo de experiências vividas por nós, enquanto alunos do Curso de Formação de Professores, estagiários e bolsistas do Programa de Iniciação à Docência – PIBID, e por meio de ideias de grandes autores como Jean Piaget."

El hip hop como pedagogía de las juventudes: Encuentro posible entre multiculturalismo crítico, pedagogía social y educación popular

El hip hop como pedagogía de las juventudes: Encuentro posible entre multiculturalismo crítico, pedagogía social y educación popular | Educommunication | Scoop.it
"En un período marcado por profundos cambios sociales, culturales, políticos y tecnológicos, en el que subrayan los procesos de exclusión social, se hace necesario avanzar en la comprensión de cómo la pedagogía y las prácticas pueden contemplar los desafíos para cumplir con los derechos de educación y de cultura, en particular su juventud. Emergen nuevas perspectivas de educación basadas en conceptos multiculturales y críticos, comprometidos con los derechos de los individuos y la inclusión social de la juventud, como la Pedagogía de las juventudes. Esta, aliada a los elementos facilitados por la amplia difusión del hip hop en el ámbito académico en Brasil y otros países, y en sus intersecciones con la educación nutren nuestra reflexión sobre el potencial pedagógico de esta manifestación. En este artículo se muestra cómo esta expresión juvenil, caracterizada como un lugar de construcción de la identidad de los jóvenes en el cual se movilizan los procesos simbólicos, sociales y materiales, puede ser entendida y apropiada en procesos pedagógicos críticos, incluyendo en la educación escolar, no sólo por el contexto de la vida urbana cotidiana y caótica de los raps, pero también por el tipo de interacción y modelo educativo que subyacen en sus diferentes manifestaciones. Adquiere mayor relieve en este artículo, a partir de la contribución de la mencionada perspectiva pedagógica, la centralidad de la realidad y de los problemas juveniles y la idea de que las cuestiones urgentes como la violencia y la exclusión social –tan presentes en las manifestaciones del hip hop– deben ser entendidos, ya sea en espacios formales o no formales, como uno de los ejes rectores para pensar acerca de la pedagogía y de las prácticas pedagógicas."

Renee Hobbs: What is Media Literacy?

"The media literacy movement is nearly 50 years old and it can be understood in relation to the new technologies of education. Critically analyzing and creating media has been part of the pedagogy of media literacy, including advertising, news, issues of representation and media economics. The National Association of Media Literacy Education hosts conferences, hosts a scholarly journal, and curriculum materials. In Europe, media literacy developed within specific national traditions in England, Italy, Germany, France, Finland, Sweden. Formal support from the EU helps advance knowledge in media literacy education."

Ética en la era digital

"Desafíos frente a la comunicación globalizada. La imagen tradicional con que el hombre se aproximaba a los medios de comunicación está cambiando y ese cambio lleva oculto algo más que una nueva descripción: implica un nuevo pensar, un nuevo explicar y un nuevo captar el valor en sí de la persona. “Comunicar y entretener deben ser sinónimos: utensilios para desplazarse por el mundo como seres históricos, trascendentes, libres inteligentes y realizados y no como tierra baldía: noche nublada que absorbe toda la luz del amanecer”, dice Hidalgo."

Parents co-using the internet with their children positively related to a reduction in the amount of time children spend online | Educommunication | Scoop.it

"How do mothers and fathers engage with their children’s information and communications technology (ICT) use? Many studies in the past have featured only mothers as respondents. In this post Ruth Festl discusses the findings of two studies exploring how mothers and fathers similarly or differently engage in ICT parenting, providing new insights about how these parental activities relate to the child’s own use and overall family life. Ruth is a Senior Researcher at the Department of Children and Childcare at the German Youth Institute. [Header image credit: C.M. Hoffman_2, CC BY-NC-SA 2.0]"

How to fix Facebook—before it fixes us

How to fix Facebook—before it fixes us | Educommunication | Scoop.it

"In my thirty-five-year career in technology investing, I have never made a bigger contribution to a company’s success than I made at Facebook. It was my proudest accomplishment. I admired Mark and Sheryl enormously. Not surprisingly, Facebook became my favorite app. I checked it constantly, and I became an expert in using the platform by marketing my rock band, Moonalice, through a Facebook page. As the administrator of that page, I learned to maximize the organic reach of my posts and use small amounts of advertising dollars to extend and target that reach. It required an ability to adapt, because Facebook kept changing the rules. By successfully adapting to each change, we made our page among the highest-engagement fan pages on the platform."

iGen: why today’s super-connected kids are growing up less rebellious, more tolerant, less happy – and completely unprepared for adulthood

"This book burst on the market a few months ago amid an avalanche of both eulogistic and critical reviews. Its subtitle signals the sweeping nature of its claims, and the headline of its author’s article in The Atlantic (Twenge, 2017 Twenge, J. .M. (2017, September). Have smartphones destroyed a generation? The Atlantic. Retrieved from https://www.theatlantic.com/magazine/archive/2017/09/has-the-smartphone-destroyed-a-generation/534198/ [Google Scholar] ) answers the “why” question by asking, rhetorically, Have Smartphones Destroyed a Generation? At last, some declared with relief, an explanation for what’s wrong with today’s youth – and a solution too: ban the smartphone. Or as Fox News put it, “Smartphones have turned us into tech-addicted zombies. Here’s why we should ban them for kids” (Hilton, 2017 Hilton, S. (2017, November 11). Smartphones have turned us into tech-addicted zombies. Here’s why we should ban them for kids. Fox News Channel. Retrieved from http://www.foxnews.com/opinion/2017/11/11/steve-hilton-smartphones-have-turned-us-into-tech-addicted-zombies-heres-why-should-ban-them-for-kids.html [Google Scholar] ). But others declared, more wearily: will the moral panics over youth and technology never end? Don’t we know now that correlation does not equal causation, that technological determinism has been debunked, and that piling up confirmatory evidence is no way to test a hypothesis? Some, too, have critiqued the graphs which underpin Twenge’s claim that “iGen” – today’s young generation for whom the “i” stands for individualism, inequality, insecurity and, yes, internet – is more fragile and risk-averse than their predecessors because of mass adoption of the smartphone."

Towards a political economy of fake news | Hirst | 

"Many PhDs will be written examining the explosion of public and scholarly interest in the topic of ‘fake news’, but at the end of 2017 the academic literature is still relatively thin. The Collins Dictionary has declared fake news to be its word of the year for 2017, noting that it has become “ubiquitous” in political discourse after being popularised by Donald Trump (Flood, 2017). Studies are also now broaching the topic, with varying amounts of clarity and success. This commentary is not a definitive review of the current literature, it is an exploratory foray into how and why the political economy of communication lens should be brought to bear on the topic. While the phenomenon is not new, interest in fake news has certainly spiked since the election of Donald J Trump as 45th President of the United States. Prior to Trump’s election the category of fake news was limited to explorations of landmark incidents such as the so-called WMD dossier that precipitated the 2003 invasion of Iraq, and to our understanding of satirical publications like The Onion, or to the work of comedic broadcasters such as Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert (Hirst, 2011). These perspectives on fake news are no longer adequate, though they form an important backdrop to current debates. "

Does watching Sesame Street make kids kinder?

Does watching Sesame Street make kids kinder? | Educommunication | Scoop.it

"A grant of more than $100,000 from Sesame Workshop will support a study by researchers at Vanderbilt’s Peabody College of education and human development measuring the effects of watching Sesame Street on young children’s understanding of kindness and emotions. Special Education Professor Mary Louise Hemmeter leads the study. “Sesame Street Season 47: Focus on Kindness,” will recruit 300 children from early childhood programs in Nashville and randomly assign them to two groups. The intervention group will watch 12 episodes of the popular television show. The other group will watch the same number of episodes of a developmentally appropriate nature-themed documentary. “Developing positive social relationships and communicating emotions effectively is important to a child’s success in school and life. I can’t think of a better way to start than learning to be kind to others,” said Hemmeter, who is one of the developers of the Pyramid Model for Supporting Social Emotional Competence in Young Children, an evidence based model for use in early childhood classrooms."

Opinião. O que faz um bom leitor?

"A descida significativa de 13 pontos na média nacional do estudo Progress in International Reading Literacy (PIRLS) 2016, que avalia a literacia de leitura de alunos no 4.º ano de escolaridade, comparativamente à do PIRLS 2011 foi recebida com algum desencanto por todos os stakeholders da educação. Diferentes atores do sistema educativo nacional — de políticos especialistas, a especialistas não políticos — foram céleres a avançar as razões que explicariam, em teoria, a evolução negativa dos resultados de leitura dos nossos alunos do 4.º ano. Contudo, não é evidente, no conjunto de citações dos especialistas publicadas pela comunicação social, em que suporte empírico, do sistema educativo ou do PIRLS, se baseiam as explicações avançadas. Os dados disponibilizados pela IEA — a organização responsável pelo estudo — permitem, mais do que a análise persecutória de resultados menos bons, identificar as variáveis que fazem — à luz do PIRLS — um bom leitor."

A mídia e a construção de uma nova representação social do idoso | Educommunication | Scoop.it

"O acelerado envelhecimento da população mundial e em especial no Brasil e sua participação na sociedade brasileira e por consequência a sua ressignificação no discurso midiático são pontos fundamentais neste trabalho que analisa a postura das organizações para a formação da opinião pública em relação ao tema. A partir do método de pesquisa qualitativa e tendo como referência analítica a ADC – Análise de Discurso Crítica o artigo tem como corpus as campanhas veiculadas no Brasil pelo Banco Itaú e pelo Burger King, desenvolvidas a partir da prática de storytellings, cujos resultados indicam que, além de um novo significado atribuído ao público idoso, os sentidos impingidos nas campanhas também despertam emoções que reforçam a nova postura das organizações e das marcas diante de uma nova e definitiva realidade social."
