En sintonía con el mundo: apps para escuchar radio

La radio es un medio de comunicación que tiene que convivir con la ‘competencia’ que le han planteado nuevos medios originados en medio de la era digital. Esto ha llevado a que la radio, al igual que muchos otros medios, se vaya trasformando para adaptarse gracias a la tecnología que nos rodea. Escuchar la radio es un concepto que no significa lo mismo que en años atrás, ya que por medio de nuevos dispositivos podemos acceder a ella, al tiempo que realizamos otras actividades o usamos otras aplicaciones. Un beneficio que la tecnología nos aporta al hablar de la radio, es la posibilidad de conocer la oferta que este medio de comunicación nos brinda alrededor del mundo, algo que anteriormente era mucho más complejo. A continuación podremos ver algunas aplicaciones con las cuales podremos escuchar todas las emisoras del mundo desde un solo clic: Radio Garden De una manera muy dinámica podemos encontrar todas las emisoras de radio del mundo.

BBC Academy - Journalism. BBC Academy - Production - Transmedia storytelling. This week's episode of the CoP Show explains what transmedia storytelling is and why producers might want to use it.

BBC Academy - Production - Transmedia storytelling

The simplest definition of transmedia storytelling is that it is a technique used to tell stories across multiple platforms: TV, radio, games, novels, social media, online or anywhere a story can unfold. "I think the core of it, is confidence in storytelling. "– Chris Sizemore A transmedia storyteller may create many "entrypoints" across different platforms, so that, for example, a fan of a drama can read the online diaries of their favourite characters or follow their comments on Twitter. The theory goes that by doing this not only can you give your audience more of what they want and love but you can also bring in a whole new audience that otherwise would not find your content.

To discuss transmedia storytelling Simon Smith is joined by Chris Sizemore, Adrian Hon and Meg Jayanth. Chris Sizemore is an executive editor for BBC Learning & Knowledge online. Spreadable Media.

The nodes in the network are the people and groups while the links show relationships or flows between the nodes. SNA provides both a visual and a mathematical analysis of human relationships. Management consultants use this methodology with their business clients and call it Organizational Network Analysis [ONA]. ONA allows you to x-ray your organization and reveal the managerial nervous system that connects everything. To understand networks and their participants, we evaluate the location and grouping of actors in the network. We look at a social network -- the "Kite Network" above -- developed by David Krackhardt, a leading researcher in social networks.

Media Commentary — Callie Schweitzer

The process of getting news involves more choice than ever. We have access to unlimited options and sources to fill what seems like ever more limited time. This paradox of choice can be incredibly overwhelming if it’s not streamlined or ritualized in some way — hence why we form news reading habits.

Not enough happens in the first two acts, the plot is kuh-razy, it’s a mishmash of styles and cultures, and it over-explains itself time and time again. That podcast is far from alone in thinking that it’s the Bard’s worst, although, as BardCast says, even the Bard’s worst is better than just about anything. Nevertheless, when was the last time you saw a performance of Cymbeline? Businessinsider.

Welcome. Information and news from the Center for News Literacy at Stony Brook University. Just in case you were still wondering… Diamond “Lavish” Reynolds changed our perception of media last week with her shocking and heartbreaking real-time web video of the last minutes of Philando Castile’s life. The couple, with her daughter riding in the back seat of their sedan, had been pulled over by local police in a Minneapolis suburb, and Reynolds had the astonishing presence of mind to send the aftermath of Castile’s shooting by a police officer — which included her arrest by cops who didn’t even try to save his life — to the world via Facebook’s “Live” video platform.

Countless articles, analyses, commentaries, and other posts have chronicled a media shift in those moments. The implications are real, and important. We are only beginning to confront the issues they raise. Mediactive – Don't Just Consume Media. Use it. National Association for Media Literacy Education.

It is mindful viewing, and reflective judgement.

It is a new, expanded view of traditional literacy.
