The political voice of young citizens: Educational conditions for political conversation - school and social media

Political conversation is a prerequisite for social cohesion in society. Due to digital media, a new educational situation has been shaped that creates different conversational possibilities in which the political conversation can take place. The analysis of two cases, the international students' questionnaire used in the ICCS 2009 and findings from research in a Swedish net community, represents two spaces - school and social media - containing specific educational conditions for political conversation. These two spaces are used to problematize and discuss, in terms of political socialisation, educational conditions for political conversation in school. The Political Voice of Young Citizens is shown to be framed by different conditions depending on where, when, and how the political conversation is institutionally arranged and directed.

An Overview of Social Media in the Practice of Infectious Di... : Infectious Diseases in Clinical Practice

The explosion in the use of social media resources across society has extended to medicine, and perhaps nowhere is it more prevalent than in the field of infectious diseases. Physicians are using blogs to write about infectious diseases, new therapies, and their experiences with them. "Infoepidemiology" promises to quickly uncover future outbreaks without the need to cross oceans or to don a respirator. Infectious disease clinicians are sharing ideas, promoting organizational and philanthropic awareness, and professionally interacting on social networks such as Facebook. YouTube and other media sharing sites have become new resources for remote medical learning and educational collaboration. At the same time, personal and professional users of social media must confront challenging issues such as professionalism, medical confidentiality, peer review, and privacy concerns.
