Media & Information Literacy Outside Of The Classroom
Internet Librarian, October 2019
Librarians are fighting an uphill battle against bad and incomplete information on digital platforms. We can teach students mnemonic devices for source assessment and encourage them to use high-quality scholarly material when working on a research paper, but do these efforts translate into students’ day-to-day information lives? How can we help students navigate filter bubbles, conspiracy theories, profit-driven algorithms, and deteriorating trust in traditional metrics for authority? Join Roquet to discuss strategies for helping students make informed, reflective information choices both in and out of the classroom.
