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).
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”.

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.https://milenexpertnetwork.wordpress.com/2020/04/15/how-to-multiply-interventions-in-media-and-information-literacy/comment-page-1/comment-55

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.https://mylitterascripta.wordpress.com/2020/04/13/preface

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: https://leizythoughts.wordpress.com/2020/03/24/letting-go-of-my-past-regrets/comment-page-1/#comment-79

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!https://sauj4.com/2020/03/24/is-smiling-banned-too
