You cannot burn a mummy blog: @burgewords comments - 1 views

    "Australians who expected to see themselves marching on the evening news started coming to terms with the death of the mainstream media. Australians who expected the march would go unnoticed because they have some control over media output started coming to terms with the fact that the social media is the only widely-distributed media left, and it's well beyond their control."

Many thanks to everyone from Brauer College, Keysborough Secondary College, North Geelong Secondary College and Newcomb Secondary College for your enthusiasm and hard work to make the day such a success. Activities included a 'hands-on' work presenting a live news bulletin in Deakin's TV studio, Journalism video and interviewing exercises and a tour of the Deakin campus. Many thanks to Subway for providing lunch, too! We will be running more Deakin Media Days in June and November, 2013, so watch out for more news about these."

The Intersection of Digital Literacy and Social Media -- Campus Technology - 2 views

  •  
    "As educators look for new ways to teach digital literacy or the use of digital technology to find, organize, comprehend, evaluate, and create information, some are turning to social media to help advance the concept in the college classroom. BUT.....colleges leveraging social media to improve digital literacy must focus on students' current use of social media and then find ways to interface those activities with the curriculum."

Wiki:Introduction to Blogging | Social Media CoLab - 1 views

  •  1. Link to a website -- a blog post, online story from a mainstream media organization, any kind of website -- and criticize it. If you can provide evidence that the facts presented in the criticized website are wrong, then do so, but your criticism doesn't have to be about factual inaccuracy. Debate the logic or possible bias of the author. Make a counter-argument. Point out what the author leaves out. Voice your own opinion in response.

      Critical literacies can be taught using social media.
  •  1. Pick a position about a public issue, any public issue, that you are passionate about. Immigration. Digital rights management. Steroid use by athletes. Any issue you care about.  2. Make a case for something -- a position, an action, a policy -- related to this public issue. You don't have to prove your case, but you have to make it. It doesn't have to be an original position, but you need to go beyond quoting the positions of others. Provide an answer to your public's question: "What does the author of this blog post want me to know, believe, think, or do?"  3. Use links to back up or add persuasiveness to your case. Use links to build your argument. Use factual sources, statements by others that corroborate your assertions, instances that illustrate the point you want to make.

      Another good exercise to develop critical literacies using social media.

    Remix culture is the new Prohibition, with massive media companies as the lone voices calling for temperance. You can criminalize commonplace activities from law-abiding people, but eventually, something has to give.
