How to Improve this Website?

Hi Folks 🙂

in case you haven’t noticed, I sort of gave up on this website a couple months ago… in part because there seemed to be very little interest in *participating* (though there did seen to be an inkling of interest in reading / consuming the content).

But also in part because actually creating posts was a major drag. 😐 That said, it seems to me easy enough from an algorithmic point of view. Does anyone have suggestions in this regard? I know, for example, that there used to be javascript “bookmarklets” on the web — some even developed by WP developers — that made such commentary fun, neato, quick & easy, stuff like that.

While I wait for responses to flood in (or prolly more likely trickle in), maybe I will try a new approach — to write replies / comments here (as “posts”) and then just link to the article in question. I am still mulling over that idea, not sure if I will actually do it or not. Right now my gut feeling is somewhere between a “definite maybe” and “meh”.

Media + Information Literacy (MIL) learning activities all make use of low key smartphone technology — a fun and dynamic approach that brings excitement to any youth training

Keywords: africa , curricula , learning interventions , media and information literacy , milli , multiplier , namibia

The lead-up to the production of the media clips is where the real learning happens. What makes good news? What agendas can be behind news? What is propaganda and how do I recognize it? What are the risks with consuming and sharing news via social media? All training nurtures critical thinking and critical awareness.

Raising awareness about the existence of ‘online bubbles’ and ‘echo chambers’ forms part of that. It looks at the agendas of online actors, and how they, through the use of algorithms, present you with news and adverts that will fit your interest. It results in a limited view on the bigger issue.Most youth in Namibia do not shop online. Therefore the online commercial world will not find an easy entry point to target the individual with advertisements. But this might change.

I want this blog to serve a purpose to YOU too: I want you to feel welcome here, or just most importantly, to FEEL — Feel understood; feel allied, happy, have something to relate to

Share this home with me. Perhaps you’ll discover a new perspective on a particular matter. Perhaps some day, you’ll need reassurance. Or perhaps, you’ll find a common experience of ours. Because above all, writing unites people.

There’s a lot we can learn or be grateful for from these experiences (of things we regret from our past), and we don’t even know it until we change our mindset as we reflect on them

Keywords: Regular Blog Posts

And when we do, we can move on more freely and be better prepared for the future. Without further ado, here are some of my past regrets:

Whatever we can do to avoid becoming gormless zombies who seek nothing but toilet roll, let’s do it, just so that we’re not completely inept at social interaction when we do finally return to normality!
