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."

"The course stresses digital media literacy and critical thinking — that is, the idea that students should make their own educated judgments about the information before them. 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. "

Comment repérer les fausses informations sur les réseaux sociaux et sur Internet ? Et surtout de quelle manière développer l'esprit critique chez les jeunes ? Pour y répondre, 300 professeurs étaient rassemblés au lycée Robert-Schuman à Metz à l'invitation du Centre pour l'éducation aux médias et à l'information.

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."

Travailler sur les fake news avec les élèves, exige de la pédagogie ! | Educommunication | Scoop.it

"(...)  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. Nous choisissons de partir de la vidéo traitant des fake news, sujet brûlant du moment. "

"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."

"This article addresses why children's use of mobile phones is an unparalleled complex developmental phenomenon in hopes of providing a broad context for this special section. It first outlines mobile phones as a sophisticated personalized and multifunction technology. Then it presents mobile phone use by children as an unparalleled complex developmental phenomenon on the basis of its four behavioral elements, two mobile cultures, and two developmental processes. It further illustrates the existing knowledge about children's mobile phones use that has been accumulated over the past 23 years and highlights 12 most studied topics, especially distracted driving and radiation exposure. It concludes with three types of scientific contributions made by the 12 articles in the special section."

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."

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."

E até se dão ao luxo de nos convencer que têm um efeito de “disrupção” (como se diz hoje) do capitalismo mundial."

Can you keep your kids safe watching YouTube?

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. "

Manuel Pinto's insight:
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. La fecha límite su recepción es el próximo 1 de marzo. Se aceptarán trabajos en español y en portugués.

Through news consumption and political information, we identi ed ve pro les: Informed Con- sumers, Poorly Informed Consumers, Emergent Consumers of Information, Consumers in a Self-Project, and Online Consumers. These pro les revealed the signi cance of social and civic capitals, the importance of daily life and family environments in the habits of news con- sumption and an important connection to the family with the political news."

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."
