Discerning Fact from Fiction: Engaging Students in Critically Evaluating Information
In 2016, Stanford researchers found that despite their fluency with social media, students struggle to discern truth from fiction online. Amidst the backdrop of misinformation, filter bubbles, and clickbait, students decidedly need a new set of skills for critically navigating through sources, social networks, and the media so that they may use, share, and create new knowledge as well-informed citizens. Come ready to share and gain strategies for revising or designing meaningful assignments that foster critical consumption of information and promote civic engagement.
