As digital citizens, we are bombarded with information daily. During this session, strategies will be shared to help educators and students navigate information including how it is presented, how bias interferes with the interpretation of information, and where to go to find reliable information. We will also explore searching the internet (web and deep web) and accessing databases. The presentation will wrap up with a discussion on fake news and how to combat it.
This course is most appropriate for educators at the middle and high school levels
Any materials will be shared electronically.
