The New Media Literacies

The New Media Literacies

Algunos ejemplos de transmedia latinoamericana (actualizado) | Narrativas Digitales (#ND) Henry Jenkins define al fenómeno “transmedia storytelling” entre otras cosas como: “historias contadas a través de múltiples medios” Jenkins, H (2006). Por su parte, Scolari (2013) dice que a pesar de las grandes producciones mediáticas hay otra línea de producción basada en el crowdfunding, es decir sistemas de microorganización colectiva en los que participan pequeños inversores. En Argentina, se van realizando experiencias de este tipo y de otros, alimentadas por la necesidad de explorar nuevos modos narrativos (más complejos) y responder al consumo-producción multicanal y multipantalla. Aunque el mismo Scolari asegura que le resulta imposible tener “una visión global de un espacio geográfico-productivo tan grande como América Latina”, la propuesta aquí es intentar un ejercicio de exploración simple por proyectos transmedia más cercanos a nuestras experiencias.

What's the point of handwriting? | Teacher Network Blog | Guardian Professional Is handwriting a personal piece of art? Photograph: Erhan Dayi / Alamy/Alamy Not so long ago, I found myself shuffling through a couple of old boxes which had lain gathering dust in my parents' house since my teens. In amongst the debris – posters of Debbie Harry and Kenny Dalglish, yellowing copies of "Roy of the Rovers"- I came across an ageing school notebook, from History to be precise. Flicking through, I found myself amazed at how neat and tidy my teenage self was, displayed in the carefully sketched Egyptian huts and hieroglyphics, and how carefully crafted my handwriting appeared to be. Clearly concerned with impressing my teacher, the writing was perfectly shaped, beautifully presented and, I have to say, hugely impressive. While I didn't quite clutch it to my chest, rocking in the foetal position, weeping for days long since lost to me, I saw a little piece of my life at that point. It's dying out though, isn't it?

Poor memory? Blame Google | Science Research has shown that search engines such as Google have prompted people to adapt their ability to remember things. Photograph: Paul Sakuma/AP First it was a search engine. Then it became almost synonymous with the internet. Research by scientists at Columbia University has found that people are adapting their ability to remember because of the formidable power of search engines such as Google to remember things for them. The research, published in Science magazine, involved a series of experiments. Participants "did not make the effort to remember when they thought they could later look up the trivia statements they had read," the researchers reported. "The results ... suggest 'where' was prioritised in memory, with the advantage going to 'where' when 'what' was forgotten," the researchers said. Betsy Sparrow, a psychologist who was one of the principal researchers, said that when faced with difficult questions, people are "primed to think about computers".

Cuando la escuela sale de la escuela Texts and Twitter 'spell end for long words' Traditional English words such as ‘balderdash’ and ‘cripes’ are dying out thanks to the texting generation, linguists have claimed. Some 73% of people believe texts and website Twitter have dramatically changed the use of English, with long words falling out of use. The trends were revealed in a poll of 2,000 adults for the launch of JP Davidson’s book Planet Word. The book is a tie-in to Stephen Fry’s BBC2 series of the same name, charting the history of language from early grunts to tweets. The author said: “Language is always evolving and great descriptive words are being lost – but others emerge. “It’s natural with people trying to fit as much information into 140 characters that words are getting shortened and are even becoming redundant as a result.” JP Davidson’s top 15 rarely-used words: 1.
