متطوعون شباب يهبون لإثراء الإنترنت بالمحتوى العربي

تذرع جهات وشركات عربية وعالمية بالافتقار للمحتوى العربي على الإنترنت بدوافع مثل التسويق لمنتجاتها وخدماتها أو غير ذلك من الأهداف لكن الأمر لا يحتاج لتسويق فهاهم مجموعة متطوعين من الشابات والشباب السعودي والسوري والمصري والاردني واللبناني يطلقون مشاريع باهرة لإغناء الإنترنت بالأبحاث المترجمة والمواضيع الحيوية التي تهم الجميع في العلوم وغيرها من المجالات الحيوية. 
على الرغم من أن بعض هذه المبادرات انطلقت حديثا إلا أنها بدأت تجذب الآلاف من المتابعين، إذ وصل عدد متابعي موقع الباحثون السوريون أمس إلى 300 ألف متابع على فيسبوك.وكتب حرمون حمية في موقع رصيف مقالا مطولا يستكشف هذه المبادرات المثيرة تحت عنوان "ستة مشاريع شبابية تطمح إلى إعادة العرب إلى عصرهم الذهبي" ويتابع قائلا:" تخيّل مكتبة في القاهرة يُترجم فيها المئات أحدث الاكتشافات العلمية إلى اللغة العربية، ومركزاً في بيروت يترجم نصوصاً وكتباً تتمحور حول علم الاجتماع. تخيّل تجمّعات 

 في بغداد ودمشق لمترجمين ينقلون النصوص الأدبية والثقافية إلى اللغة العربية من دون مقابل مادي ، المئات من الشباب العرب تخيّلوا المشهد وأسسوا مجموعات على الإنترنت، تترجم مواضيع علمية وثقافية متنوعة إلى اللغة العربية. يتابع مئات الآلاف من العرب ست صفحات على فيسبوك، يساهم فيها المئات من المترجمين المحترفين والهواة في خلية نحل تنتج يومياً موادَّ للقارئ العربي المهتم بالاكتشافات العلمية الحديثة، النصوص الأدبية، وما بينهما من إنتاج فكري قدمه الإنسان على مرّ التاريخ. هذه المجموعات هي 
 "ولكل مجموعة قصة تثلج القلوب، ومثلا اشرف على تأسيس موقع الباحثون السوريون مهند ملك، وهو دكتور باحث في جامعة كامبريدج البريطانية، صفحة على موقع التواصل الإجتماعي الفيسبوك أطلق عليها اسم ” الباحثون السوريون“ وهو بالأساس موقع على الإنترنت يروي فضول الباحثين عن المعرفة والعلم أو الوصول إلى معلومات دقيقة حول أي ظاهرة أو موضوع سواء كان يرتبط بالصحة أو الكيمياء أو الفضاء.
يشير موقع الفنار للتعليم العالي في العالم العربي إلى قول المؤسس مهند ملك إن المشروع جاء نتيجة الغضب من سذاجة ما نُشر في كل مكان من مستخدمي وسائل الاعلام الاجتماعية خلال الربيع العربي. حيث وجد الكثير من الناس يصدقون كل ما يرد في التغريدات والمنشورات وكأنها نصوص مقدسة رغم غياب مصدرها الواضح مما يتسبب في سوء الفهم وانتشار الأكاذيب. ” لكوني عالم فإن التمسك بالاستشهادات وذكر المصادر متأصل بداخلي. أردت أن أظهر للناس أن هذا ليس مقصوراً على العلم فقط. إنه أسلوب حياة.”
توافق مادونا بشورة، التي تقود عمل الباحثون السوريون في شمال أميركا في كندا، على ما يقوله ملك. تقول “أشاركه القلق إزاء القبول الأعمى للأكاذيب. أنا صيدلانية ويقلقني بصورة خاصة تصديق الناس للمعلومات الصحية  المغلوطة على شبكة الإنترنت.”
بدأ مشروع الباحثون السوري مع مجموعة قليلة من المتابعين في عام 2011، ليصل اليوم لأكثر من 280 ألف معجب متابع لصفحة الفيسبوك من جميع أنحاء العالم العربي.
يرجع ملك سبب النجاح إلى 325 طالب وباحث يعملون في المشروع من مختلف أنحاء العالم وليسوا جميعهم سوريين. إذ يقومون بقراءة الدراسات وكتابة مقالات وملخصات غير رسمية عن محتواها باللغة العربية، ومن ثم يتم نشرها على موقع المشروع وصفحته على الفيسبوك.  يبدي ملك حماساً أكبر لمشروعه القادم الذي يهدف إلى تحويل صفحة الفيسبوك إلى جمعية وقناة تلفزيونية.
درس ملك في مدرسة فرنسية كاثوليكية للراهبات في دمشق، والده مسلم ووالدته من عائلة مسيحية وهو ما تسبب في حيرة كبيرة له في الكثير من الأحيان. يقول “كنت أصلي إلى مريم المقدسة في الصباح ثم بعد ظهر أيام الجمعة كنت أذهب إلى المسجد. وأذكر أني ذهبت إلى مكة عندما كنت طفلا، وكنت مشوشا جداً.”
لكن ملك لم يعد مشوشا كذلك هو حال هذه المجموعات التي تمشي بخطى سديدة لتقديم بديل عن المعلومات المغلوطة والصحافة الصفراء التي تجذب القراء لمواقعها بعناوين مضللة لأغراض الربح.

Open Access Journal: Arab World English Journal AWEJ




AWEJ: Arab World English Journal   

Arab World English Journal (AWEJ) is a refereed, peer-reviewed, and open-access e-journal for scholars, researchers, teachers, and officials of the English language in the Arab countries and in the entire world.

With the coming of globalization and E-era, there is a general consensus among most scholars, educationalists, and policy makers that English language is the language and the tool of globalization and internationalization. Globalization has the power to make English language universal. Although the distance between countries has become closer, the competition is getting fiercer. Therefore, the ministries and departments of education as well as universities in most of countries of the world have launched quantum activities to develop and update their English teaching programs to cope with the new challenges.

 Most Arab countries teach English language as part of their public education, but unfortunately, educators, teachers, and officials are unhappy with these programs due to the poor results, outcomes and performances of many students. Hence, it is easy to note that the quality of instruction has inhibited students’ English language proficiency over the years. In addition,, there are several other key issues like the growing disparity in competence in English among students and a lack of English competence among many teachers who have not effectively advanced the language.

The Arab World English Journal has a clear vision of the current situation of English teaching and learning in the Arab countries, and through AWEJ we hope to establish a forum for lively professional discussion to promote the development of links between language-related research and its application in educational and other professional settings. We believe that as globalization continues to make the world a smaller place, we need to make certain that students gain the skills and knowledge to excel in whatever careers they pursue.

Free Access to Developing Economies

High Wire provides Free Access to Developing Economies

The following journals offer free online access to developing economies, based on either programs such as HINARI or AGORA, or on a HighWire-based program offering access to countries appearing in the World Bank's list of "low income economies,"plus Angola, Armenia, Azerbaijan, Djibouti, Georgia, Indonesia, Turkmenistan, and Ukraine. Individual publishers use the list from the World Bank as a guideline for determining their policies, so some variation in access per publisher does occur. One do not need to sign up for this service as the software automatically detects the country one is connecting from and grants access accordingly. To request that a journal be added to this list, please contact the journal's publisher directly via their 'Feedback' button -- do not contact HighWire Press
