Teacher-Student Relationship and Facebook-Mediated Communication: Student Perceptions


"Student-teacher relationships are vital to successful learning and teaching. Today, communication between students and teachers, a major component through which these relationships are facilitated, is taking place via social networking sites (SNS). In this study, we examined the associations between studentteacher relationship and studentteacher Facebookmediated communication. The study included Israeli middle and highschool students, ages 1219 years old (n=667). Studentteacher relationships were compared between subgroups of students, based on their type of Facebook connection to their teachers (or the lack of such a connection); their attitudes towards a policy that prohibits Facebook connection with teachers; and their perceptions of using Facebook for learning. Regarding students' attitudes towards banning studentteacher communication via SNS and towards using Facebook for learning, we found significant differences between three groups of students: those who do not want to connect with their teachers on Facebook, those who are connected with a teacher of theirs on Facebook, and those who are not connected with a teacher of theirs but wish to connect. Also, we found significant associations between studentteacher relationship and studentteacher Facebookmediated communication. We argue that in the case of studentteacher Facebookmediated communication, there is a gap between students' expectations and inpractice experience. The key to closing this gap lies in both policy and effective implementation.

Better Internet for Kids - report

"Protecting and empowering minors online requires continuous, multidisciplinary and transnational approaches. The Better Internet for Kids initiative lays the foundations for building a global cyber-culture, in which children become responsible digital citizens. Again this year was rich of activities and challenges for the EC and the Insafe and INHOPE networks: a new Alliance to better protect minors online gathering more than 20 key industry players, NGOs and UNICEF was launched; a wide range of stakeholders were mobilised through large-scale events such as Safer Internet Day and the campaign on Positive Online Content; Safer Internet Centres kept up with the latest developments and engaged in exchange of best practices and knowledge on pressing issues such as fake news and data protection; the helplines offered support for emerging phenomena such as the Blue Whale Challenge; and the hotlines contributed to a faster take down of child sexual abuse material. Providing a better digital environment for young users will remain a priority in the EC’s agenda and we will continue to enable cooperation at European level and beyond, provide financial support, and contribute to a regulatory framework fit for purpose."

Meta-synthesis of Literacy for the Empowerment of Vulnerable Groups

"The vulnerability translates in concrete human groups that, although they know what occurs around them in a digital matter, by his own social and cultural condition they are alienated and, in this sense, away of the exercise of the information right. The aim has been to analyze the critical, media and digital literacy for the empowerment of vulnerable groups. The systematic review of the literature (meta-synthesis) covers the period between the years 1996-2016 and launched 202 documents, of which 117 fulfilled the inclusion criteria (105 documentary investigations and 12 qualitative studies). The results indicate that boys, teenagers and adults have been benefited and empowered by this literacy, many of them with low educational levels, in an econo¬mical disadvantage situation or have been alienated or excluded socially and culturally. The informal spaces for the media and digital training prevail as well as the reconceptualization reflection of the literacy, the reason why the vulnerable groups move away of his profits, like the influence of the empowerment in the social and personal sphere and the educational and communicational implications for those who have the responsibility of empower. It concludes that the groups are vulnerable if only they stay ignorant and that teach them to read and write empower them for the citizen life."

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."

« Donner à la parole des élèves une légitimité qui lui est habituellement déniée (...) - Les Cahiers pédagogiques | Educommunication | Scoop.it

"Et si on donnait la parole aux élèves, si on la reconnaissait comme « valable » ? Voilà un drôle de pari, dans un système éducatif où, pour beaucoup, la parole des élèves reste une gêne, venant troubler un silence forcément studieux et indispensable. Pourtant, leur donner la parole permet aux élèves de mieux apprendre à la construire et à se construire, à écouter les autres. Entretien avec les coordonnateurs du dossier."

Virtual reality as a narrative strategy at the service of the viewer’s immersion

Virtual reality as a narrative strategy at the service of the viewer’s immersion | Educommunication | Scoop.it

"Los avances tecnológicos han revolucionado la forma de crear y de consumir productos de entretenimiento, dando lugar a nuevas fórmulas que mezclan los soportes tradicionales con los digitales. Dentro del contexto ficcional, las series ahora exploran fórmulas que permiten a los espectadores participar en la historia, generando nuevas experiencias que terminan convirtiéndolos en cocreadores de dichos contenidos. La realidad virtual (RV) viene a ser una nueva herramienta que va a permitir responder a la demanda de las nuevas generaciones de nativos digitales para que puedan entablar una interacción más activa con sus productos de entretenimiento favoritos, con la particularidad de que, en este caso, el espectador no solo va a ser una parte integrante del universo de la ficción, sino que va a poder asistir en primera persona a los hechos narrados. La presente comunicación plantea un estudio de caso basado en seis ejemplos actuales de series de ficción como son Invisible (Samsung, JAUNT, CNÉ y 30 Ninjas), Halcyon (Syfy), Game of Thrones (HBO), Sleepy Hollow (FOX), The Simpsons (FOX) y El Ministerio del Tiempo (RTVE), donde la realidad virtual se ha utilizado para expandir el universo narrativo. A partir de una metodología de análisis cualitativa este estudio pretende determinar la función que cumplen los contenidos creados en RV dentro de la narrativa base (capítulos de la serie de ficción), lo que permitirá a su vez delimitar las principales innovaciones que introduce la citada tecnología en lo que respecta a narración y consumo de las series de ficción objeto de estudio por parte de los espectadores-usuarios."

How 2017 Became a Turning Point for Tech Giants

How 2017 Became a Turning Point for Tech Giants | Educommunication | Scoop.it

"This was a terrible year for the tech industry. That’s an odd thing to say at a time of record growth and profits. In 2017, large American tech companies have kept hauling in more money and more users, and — to a degree that might seem dystopian — they continued to expand their foothold in our lives. This was a year in which Amazon created a way for its delivery drivers to let themselves into your house, and Apple created a phone you can unlock with your face. Yet underneath this apparent success was a momentous shift in how the tech business deals with the world. Five or 10 years from now, we will come to regard 2017 as a turning point. Why? Because this year, for the first time, tech giants began to grudgingly accept that they have some responsibility to the offline world. The scope of that responsibility, though, is another matter entirely."

Revista Aularia: «El propósito del mensaje» | Educommunication | Scoop.it

"Desde finales del siglo pasado asistimos a la creciente proliferación de dispositivos y tecnologías de la comunicación que conforman la sociedad de la Información. En este contexto adquieren especial importancia los contenidos audiovisuales a los que el receptor tiene acceso. La presencia de Internet y las Redes Sociales popularizan su uso entre la ciudadanía que debe conocer, además de su funcionamiento, cuál es su finalidad, que contenidos difunde y para qué. La información se ha ido convirtiendo en un bien de mercado que, lejos de informar posee otras pretensiones entre las que destaca la venta, no solo de productos sino de imágenes, ideología, formas de comportamiento y valores. Los productos se relacionan con personajes famosos, con «superpoderes» o con cualidades que van más allá de la realidad con el objeto de convencer al receptor. En la sociedad de consumo actual incluso las marcas se institucionalizan llegando a monopolizar el mercado y centrando el interés de la audiencia que debe desarrollar cualidades que le permitan reconocer la razón por la cual se construyen los mensajes difundidos por los medios.

"This Thursday, Ajit Pai, Donald Trump’s choice to chair the Federal Communications Commission, will force a vote to repeal net neutrality protections for broadband providers. This is an important step backwards for our democracy. It will affect what consumers pay for broadband and what we can buy. More importantly, it will affect what we as citizens can say and to whom we can say it."
