Let's do a bit of #medialiteracy this morning, shall we #OntEd? This is a new ad, created to persuade Ontarians that our current system of hiring is leading to unqualified teachers in our schools.
As a media literacy educator, I teach my students #medialiteracy #keyconcepts to help them navigate all the messages they receive from the media texts they interact with. The goal critical thinking, empowering people to be informed viewers, consumers, and creators.
So, what do we see and notice from this text? (btw, 'text' is a general term that can be used to refer to many types of media) first key concept: all media are constructions, they contain choices as to what is shown, as well as what isn't.

In the seventeenth century, Hamburg's printer and newsdealer Georg Greflinger published an influential newspaper: the "Nordischer Mercurius".

Yet, only a few copies are digitized:…

A short thread about #earlymodernnews for #newshistory and #bookhistory
In August 1674, Greflinger commented (once more) on the uncertainty of news flows present in Europe, and the levels of #fakenews and #falsenews being copied and spread in the European media systems. By the way, this was the normal case for all newspapers at the time.
Greflinger used this phrase in 1674 to commend on the common practices of the news business:

Everyone says their best / even though you have nothing certain (in German: "Ein Jeder sagt sein Bästes / Und hat man noch nichts festes")

Here we go again: US govt tells Facebook to kill end-to-end encryption for the sake of the children… via @theregister
1/n La pression est continue (et pas nouvelle), mais ce n'est en aucun cas une réalité aujourd'hui, le chiffrement de WhatsApp est toujours exempt de porte dérobée, et l'application utilise le même protocole de chiffrement que Signal. Les failles de sécurité de WhatsApp...
2/n se situent au niveau de l'application, et pour celles qui sont devenues publiques, à ma connaissance, aucune de ces failles ne remet en cause le chiffrement en tant que tel (…). Ce genre de faille n'est pas non plus propre à WhatsApp, par exemple...

I thought about watching Unbelievable on Netflix, but I honestly really don’t want to. And from the tweets I’ve seen and reviews I’ve read, it doesn’t look like I’m the target audience.
I already think about sexual assault more than the average person. I don’t need more “awareness” about how fucked up the system is. I’m fucking living it. I’ve been reading, talking, writing about it for most of my adult life.
This is my suspicion as well—and I know myself pretty well ;-)

#medialiteracy #mediajustice @ABCNetwork CAST SEAN F*CKING SPICER ON @DancingABC. In #RealityBitesBack I exposed how #realityTV functions as backlash against gender+racial justice & social progress. Corporate media are largely responsible for POTUS 45. Now the cycle continues 1/3
2/3 Here's my 2017 piece on Sean Spicer's Holocaust denialism, and what I feared it foreshadowed from 45's administration. I didn't want to be right.

I was.

And now Spicer'll hoof it on @DancingABC, @ABCNetwork letting him rehab his image…
3/3 Corporate media have immense power to shape our lives, from personal beliefs to public policy and governance. Yet @ABCNetwork is choosing to profit off Holocaust denier/facist enabler Sean Spice... just as @nbc was responsible for making Trump POTUS.…

Media Literacy: Seldom have we witnessed a federal party leader alienate so many Canadians in the opening line of a speech. Likely meant to be somewhat conciliatory, or comforting, Scheer's speech is anything but. #cdnpoli 1/25 +
As soon as he utters the words, "children of God", the hair stands up on the backs of many people's necks. Why is this, you ask? First, in a diverse, multicultural country, we don't talk a lot about faith. That's not because it is not allowed, but because the threat... 2/25
of one faith group imposing their will on other faith groups, or people who do not belong to any faith group, is ever-present in this world. Indeed, we only need look to the south to see how the lines between church and state have blurred. 3/25

Media literacy: Deconstructing political-speak. #cdnpoli
When a politician like Jason Kenney, who spent > a decade working for Stephen Harper, gets in front of a camera or microphone, you can bet that there will be no "winging it". Every word out of his mouth is deliberate.. 1/10
and thought through. There is no going off script. He knows what he wants to communicate and how he wants to communicate it. There is no accidental phrasing or memory slips. That is the first thing to keep in mind. 2/10
Here is a clip of a @CTV_PowerPlay interview about wildfires. Parsing will follow in subsequent tweets. Watch, then follow along... 3/10…

THREAD: I was thrilled to present at #SHAPETampa last week! @ShapeAmerica’s national convention is the largest gathering of #healthed and #physed teachers in the country. I know not everyone could make it, so here is a recap of my presentation.
My session was scheduled at 8 a.m. on the first day of the convention, so I didn’t know if anyone would make it. I wore my #SEXEDU shirt from @AskGoody in tribute to @THEKINGDMC, who was presenting (and doing some Run-DMC classics) with @HHPHorg later that day.
I was coming from the West Coast, so this 8 a.m. session felt like 5 a.m. to me.

Luckily, the room filled up early with lots of energetic folks. Shout out to @MelanieLynch52 for helping me navigate some projector connection trouble!

Low vaccination rates are a #publichealth crisis, leading to outbreaks of deadly diseases like #measles. My new research in Vaccine/@ElsevierNews provides insight into the characteristics of people who post #antivax content on #Facebook:…
First, I want to credit my fantastic co-authors: @MTH_Pitt @emfelter @DrToddWo @ChadTRM @PittPubHealth. This research stemmed from thousands of #antivax comments on a video on the @kidspluspgh Facebook page:…
We used social network, quantitative, and qualitative analyses to examine 25% of people who left these comments. Our goal was to answer questions about who these people are, the information they post, and how they are connected.

@jeffjarvis weren't you and @gigastacey JUST talking about never giving facebook a pass on the latest episode of This Week In Google?…
Also, @gigastacey you again mentioned the need for #mediaLiteracy , which @Jeffjarvis poo pooed as not really being the problem (I think both media literacy AND better critical thinking skills are the issue) and you failed to remind #LeoLaporte that a TWITTTER listener of HIS
turned you on to the in-class curriculum @checkology

1. Woke up 3hrs too early, queasy and stressed. 2mins from now, we will likely be witness to a national misogynistic sham so deep and so blatant as to prove once and for all that the powerbrokers of US government do not believe women are human. #Kavanaugh #BelieveSurvivors #RAGE
2. I'll prob livetweet #Kavanaugh hearing, but I feel physically ill over how they've stacked the deck against #ChristinaBlaseyFord, ignored #JulieSwetnick's gang rape allegations, demonized #DeborahRamirez. How many more rapes will happen bec Trump &GOP brand claim women liars.
3. 0 reason other than corruption, misogyny, and partisanship for having no witnesses, no FBI investigation. Yet hypocrite Grassley, opens saying he wants a "Safe, comfortable, and dignified" hearing and a "show of civility"--then immediately misrepresents the issues. #Kavanaugh

Gedanken zur laufenden Debatte um #Schächten und die geforderten Listen für Juden in Niederösterreich.
1. Es ist ein Nicht-Thema! Vollständig! Es betrifft eine verschwindend geringe Anzahl Menschen. Es ist & war kein Problem. Es ist gesetzlich geregelt.

Hört auf, es zu kochen.
2. In der Landesregierung setzt FPÖ-Waldhäusl setzt um, was SPÖ-Androsch wollte #schächten. Die National-Sozialisten finden sich historisch und auch heute. "Kleiner Mann" & "Soziale Heimatpartei" führen zu Exklusion des Anderen, Fremden, zu Feinbildern und Aggression. Zum Speibn.
3. Religionsfreiheit gilt. Art. 18 Menschenrechtserklärung, Art 9 EMRK. Ohne Diskussion. Die Freiheit, sich zu Religionen zu bekennen oder religionslos zu leben. Vorgeschützte Diskussionen richten sich immer (!) gegen kleinere, fremde, schwächere Minderheiten. …#schächten

1) I am the original photographer of this image which was edited, subsequently retweeted by you, and has since removed from your feed. Here are the real facts of this photograph.
2) This photograph was taken in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, Canada in Oct. 2015. I should know, I was there.
3) At the time, I was a reporter for a Saskatoon-based media outlet, writing a story about a local rally in support of Canada bringing in Syrian refugees.
