We Shouldn't Ignore Media Literacy

We Shouldn't Ignore Media Literacy | Media Literacy | Scoop.it

"

While there are other factors in play, basically whenever learning is disconnected from the learner, the innate joy of learning disappears and the learning system becomes highly inefficient. When the teacher is not even speaking the language of the learner, let alone dealing with relevant subject matter, then the incredible human capacity for learning and self empowerment is at great risk. We refer to it as our nation's cognitive surplus. Now imagine if students were allowed to speak their own language in school.

Ignoring Media Literacy also leaves our children defenseless when they are surrounded by the constant barrage of targeted media. Put another way, we are selling our children for a buck.

What are the solutions to incorporate media into the classroom?"

Infographic: 13% of social media users are identity theft victims

Infographic: 13% of social media users are identity theft victims | Media Literacy | Scoop.it

The tension between the monetization of social networks and people’s desire for privacy is something that doesn’t show any signs of resolving. The most valuable thing that social networks have is your information, and this infographic does a good job of vetting out where your information is and how vulnerable we all are because of it.

Identity theft!

Randy Hilarski's curator insight, September 24, 2013 1:59 PM

Be careful what you post on social media. Public means public people!

Its a shame that we have so much internet identity theft in this digital age. One solution I highly recommend to many of our clients is the use of prepaid debit cards in order to minimize potential loss with like a Walmart, Netspend or Bancorp Prepaid Visa or Mastercard for online purchases and link that even further through a paypal debit card. Our website has links to business cards also http://ironsolutionsgroup.com/business-credit-cards/
