History, policy and practices of media education in South Korea

Fri, 11/09/2012 - 17:24
2012-11-09T16:24:51Z Jeong, Hyeon-Seon The authors begin by providing the historical and social background of Korean media education, which has its roots in civil participation activities in the 1980s. Then, they discuss the legal and governmental policies on media education, focusing on the Broadcasting Act and the diverse programs provided by governmental organizations, particularly those under the Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism. They also provide good examples of media education practices by groups of teachers, civil society associations and the media industry, in addition to introducing the recent changes in the newly reformed National Curriculum, which includes some elements of media literacy. They conclude by pointing out the need for a more consistent policy on media literacy and a forum to activate discussion on the topic.

Internet access by minors at home: usage norms imposed by parents

Fri, 11/09/2012 - 17:19
2012-11-09T16:19:43Z Sureda-Negre, Jaume Comas-Forgas, Ruben Morey-López, Mercè This paper examines and discusses the rules and standards set by parents for their children on Internet usage at home. Data that supports the paper have been obtained by surveying a representative sample of children in the Balearic Islands aged between 6 and 16 years; the analysis dimensions are: access by minors to the Internet from home; location of the computer from which have online access; level of autonomy or accompaniment while surfing the Net; norms imposed by their parents; types of rules imposed; relationship between norms and gender; the minors’ opinion and assessment of the knowledge and abilities of their parents on use of the Internet and, finally, the accompanying strategies of parents when their children access the Internet. The main results shows that just over 53% of minors between 6 and 14, and 62% of those between 15 and 16, surf the Internet without their parents’ presence and free of any norms and/or limitations. Where standards are established, these are mainly to do with temporary restrictions. Therefore, it appears that parents are unaware of the dangers of the Internet or at least act irrationally. This shows the need for awareness and provision of skills, knowledge and abilities to enable parents to assume their responsibilities in the Internet usage of minors.

Modele Open Access i ich realizacja w Polsce

Tue, 11/06/2012 - 17:41
2012-11-06T16:41:58Z Święćkowska, Teresa In Poland, the gold way of Open Access is developing more dynamically than the green way. With few subscription electronic journals, OA journals are the dominant transitional model from paper to electronic publishing in the field of scholary communication. In the publication of OA journals there is however an growing trend towards contracting services of commercial platforms. The main obstacles in the development of the green way are the lack of OA infrastructures and national as well as institutional policies.

Consorzi e oltre: ICOLC European Meeting (Vienna 14-17 ottobre 2012)

Tue, 11/06/2012 - 17:37
2012-11-06T16:37:50Z Giordano, Tommaso ICOLC (International Coalition of Library Consortia) è un’organizzazione world wide (non profit) cui aderiscono 200 consorzi per l’acquisizione e gestione di risorse elettroniche. Nata circa 15 anni or sono, ICOLC organizza due meeting annuali: in Nord America, in primavera, e in Europa, in autunno. Quest’anno il meeting si è svolto a Vienna, presso la facoltà di legge (Juridicum), con circa 90 partecipanti (per la maggior parte responsabili di consorzi e di programmi di cooperazione). Il programma si è articolato in numerose sessioni (alcune in parallelo) su argomenti di stringente attualità, offrendo un panorama dei programmi di acquisizione e gestione delle risorse elettroniche di vari paesi in Europa, Asia e America. Quali i trend del mercato dell’informazione? Come reagiscono i consorzi e le biblioteche all’irruenza dell’editoria accademica commerciale? Quali strategie adottare per far fronte alle restrizioni imposte dalla crisi? Sono queste le principali questioni su cui si è dipanato il dibattito, spesso vivace e a tratti appassionante, che qui cercherò di riassumere evidenziando i punti che mi paiono di maggiore interesse.

Počátky renesanční typografie v Čechách a na Moravě

Tue, 11/06/2012 - 16:40
2012-11-06T15:40:28Z Voit, Petr (English title: The beginning of Renaissance typography in Bohemia and Moravia). In spite of obvious apologia of modern Czech researchers, our typography of Jagellon‘s period has only an occasional character. The main reasons are a weak potential of writers‘ and translators‘ skills, absence of separately profiled publishing branch and the editorial strategy determined by the foreign import. The period in which our domestic early printed books disengaged from a late Gothic features was longer than in typographic empires like Germany, France or Italy. That was due to the fact that the majority of Czech printers and cutters in the first decade of the 16th century were stimulated by the older illustrational repertoire. Mikuláš Konáč (1514) and Pavel Olivetský (1520) were the first who got rid of a late Gothic idiom. The next generation can already be considered to belong to the early Renaissance. The intensity, however, with which this generation adopted the new style varied because of economic aspects: it was adopted to a lesser degree by poorer Mikuláš Klaudián (1518) and Oldřich Velenský (1519); on the contrary richer Pavel Severin (1520) and Jiří Štyrsa (1521) adhered to it more vigorously. The twenties of the 16th century are analogically a period when the Renaissance decorative elements are being used in the domestic book binding. In this time we can also see somewhat belated reception of a humanistic written minuscule. The early Renaissance era of typography in our countries took about twenty years longer than in Germany, Austria and Poland. The upper time limit lies between the thirties and half of the forties of the 16th century when the Prague‘s printer Jan Had started to use the Venetian type of antiqua (Roman type) instead of usual Schwabacher type when printing the books in Latin. Bartoloměj Netolický, who lived in Prague, and Jan Günther were the first in this time, too, who accepted the Blackletter as a distinctive type face of the Czech texts. With these systematic changes the graphic reform of our bookprinting has been accomplished until the beginning of the 19th century.

Open Access w Niemczech

Tue, 11/06/2012 - 12:56
2012-11-06T11:56:27Z Święćkowska, Teresa Thesis/Aim - The article reviews the state of Open Access development in Germany. It presents OA policies and selected cases illustrating how these policies are implemented. Methods - Analysis of scientific articles, conference proceedings, and primary sources like documentations of OA projects and initiatives and correspondence with selected German institutions supporting Open Access. Conclusions - In Germany almost all most important scientific institutions support the development of both Open Access models, both the green way and the golden way. All German OA mandates are soft mandates which request rather than require self-archiving. They are implemented by the development of repository infrastructure and by financial support for publications. German OA advocates believe that the development of green way OA can be accelerated by changes in copyright law.

Ciência da informação: que filosofia?

2012-11-04T22:09:11Z Ferreira, Carla Lopes, Leonor Grilo, Maria Elisa Savioli, Vânia The purpose of this poster is to present the position of Luciano Floridi relatively the type of philosophy that can serve as theoretical support to Information Science (IS), contributing for clarification and discussion of ideas in the set of disciplines gyrating around the subject of information, more specifically, in scope of (IS). The methodology has an undergone analysis of published studies and an extensive and reflected synthesis work. Rather than seeking to argue Philosophy of Information (PI) as the philosophy of IS is our goal present and characterize this emerging philosophy (whose appearance is justified by establishment of the Information Society) and bring it to the epistemological debate IS.
