Four Moves and a Habit – Detecting and addressing pollution in our digital environments
Facilitator: Dr. Amy Collier, Associate Provost for Digital Learning, DLINQ
Date: Friday, October 19, 2018, 1:30-2:30 pm PT/4:30-5:30 pm ET
Location: via Zoom
The web is polluted. Every day we encounter mis/disinformation on social media, news sites, and other digital information spaces. Misinformation on the web is polarizing us, it’s radicalizing us (see The Miseducation of Dylann Roof) and we should be paying attention. In this session, you will learn Four Moves and a Habit—a set of strategies to help you detect and debunk misinformation on the web. These strategies will help you to become a more deft web citizen and can be tied into classroom-based activities you can use to teach students how to be better citizens on the web.
