A journalist has been disclosed as the owner of an anonymous twitterkonto, and complains into the mention of PFU. It will be exciting to see how today's press ethics harmonize with the school's ethics.
The story of a former DN journalist Mina Ghabel Lunde has, of course, awakened my interest. I was not familiar with the case until it was brought to the Almene public through the revelations of who had created the Twitter profile @fruhjorth. Oh for me on my own to put me into what has been tvitret from the account today does not go, for the actual account has been deleted. Of course it is possible to find what has been uttered through the account in other way, but it is violence that hassle and heft that I do not take my trouble. Instead, I get to relate to what is being said – of the various parties – the same way I relate to what is being said by the different parties when students have come into conflict because they disagree on the matter.
To imagine what one would do if the conflict had played out in my classroom, with my students, is an interesting exercise. For What if one of the class's skilled girls turned out to stand behind the anonymous Twitterkontoen? What if many of the school's strong, skilled and taleføre students had to deal with an anonymous twitterkonto that came with sharp observations, witty kicks but also hurtful remarks?
Obviously, it had become a case for the headmaster. One of the jobs to US teachers is to make sure that students have a good physical and psychosocial working environment. This means that we should prevent bullying, and translated into a school setting had this undoubtedly been defined as a "Mobbesak". That social media being used in this way is not unknown to us who work in school. But it probably wasn't a case that was very clear. It must be allowed to promote criticism. It's not always fair to have to criticize the toughest in the class face to face? The relationship between what one wants to say, and the way you choose to say it, would definitely have been a topic. Is any method as straightforward? I think I would have tried to explain to students that there are good ways to promote criticism, and then there are bad ones. Such an anonymous twitterkonto appears today as one of the bad ones.
I don't know if an overall journalist stand would set the case the same way as me. It is after all difference to what happens among the youth in school and what happens between older people. Adult people should be expected to be age people with the ability to take their social responsibility seriously, but also be able to endure a noise. At the same time: Many believe that it is "in the real world" we will look for examples of succession, not in schools. Often we are accused in school of not understanding how the world outside the classroom works and that we do not prepare the youth of what they have in store after they have received their diplomas. What the adults are doing when driving their professional yrkesutøvlser is therefore of interest to us. As a media teacher it is my job to know specific examples of what journalists do and do not do and then suggest what my students should do after-and which line they should not be putting themselves on.
In this respect, Mina Ghabel Lunde is an interesting example. Is she all right? Has she contributed to groundbreaking and important media criticism? Was it right by her competing colleagues to reveal her? Is it true of her to point out that she is not the worst, at the same time she does not want to enlighten about who she has had with herself in her twitteraksjon, because that is what is the character of suicide to Oute partners in "crime"? Is there a threat to the source protection to require that the other should stand out?
In the media debate, we are happy to encounter examples that we are not successful in schools to prevent bullying. These are often examples that are so abundantly clear that they cut us in the eyes with all their horror. Then it is not difficult to become ashamed of your own and the institution one is a part of. The more blurred examples, where the rising genus contributes with their and pay each other with the same coin, are not as easy to tell within a time rigid media dramaturgy. For that rule, the reality of pure narratives does not offer a small standing against large, black against white, good against evil, or where we are dealing with a system that is totally corrupt and flawed throughout the Fjøla. Not even when the journalists choose to portray it that way. Instead, it is a bit of each and it is usually dark even when one tries to illuminate the case. Often, everyone seems to think Cats grey, simply because they are gray. The parties accuse each other to be just as bad and we learn that there are big shortcomings in the parties ' ability to see what mistakes one can even correct, while one is fighting to rain when it comes to being able to point out what "all the others" should have done.
What is not unusual is to cover up for each other. By holding back information, do their best to hide their tracks. People are told not to gossip while accounts on social media are deleted. Also here is the moral to "say nothing", protect their own, and loyally take heat for the other because it with such behavior follows a kind of honor. When Mina Ghabel Lunde acknowledges that much that has been posted from this account has not been good, but rather kriktikkverdig, she resembles a pretty common student who still sticks to such a "in ´ m too Cool for school" logic. These are the people who know how to stay within what is acceptable, but which while not having big problems working with people who don't. Towards such no use with the teacher Bjørn Romsdal method. For Here lies the loyalty of those who would like to slap the crap, but who is not in for what they are doing, not because they are afraid, but because they simply lack the respect and ability of empathy with other people. Instead of following the rules of the school community, you choose to follow his self-justice. It allows us who are working to clean up not getting access to enough information about who is behind what is hurting for others. These are attitudes that help us in school fail. We remain inadequate, because we can not ansvarliggjøre those who actually are in charge, namely the bullies. Then, it turns out and to sad, but dog, good journalistic issues out of it, which is about the fact that school is too poor to deal with the consequences of individuals ' lack of understanding of what negative consequences their internal humor may have for others.
For US teachers, such situations are demanding. It is not free for that one simply may get muck fed up and tired of having to spend their precious time unwinding in infinite threads and making order what should really be due in the backpack of "general upbringing". It is easy that this fatigue helps our teachers lose a key sight of: just because so many have not received their necessary dose of manners from home, so we have working in the school a social mission. It is we in school who will compensate for what is lacking in the civil society and make sure that the people who come from home who suffer from the Åndsfattig judgement get what they need from the large community. The mission is to be found in the general curriculum, where it is clear that in school we will ensure that people have the necessary social competence to be able to be a real human being and a good citizen. When Mina Ghabel Lunde has complained to other media to the academic line of press for the way they have referred the matter, the case follows with my interest. For though I am reasonably sure of how the case of @fruhjorth would have ended in the headmaster's office, I am excited to see what the press ethic's own court has to tell to the youth who have chosen to educate themselves for the future of media industry. It is not given that we operate with the same ethical standards.
