Description

Studies show that once a person believes an untruth, it can be very hard to persuade that person otherwise. Meanwhile, social media algorithms and some methods of delivering fake news (e.g. memes, "deepfakes") pose special challenges. In such a climate where news literacy is declining, and news consumers are reluctant to consider information contrary to their held beliefs, how is a librarian to counter the rise of media illiteracy? This session attempts to tackle these questions and more.

Learning Objectives:
  • Identify what media literacy skills are the most important to emphasize
  • Learn what role librarians can play in the local and national community to increase media literacy skills
  • Understand why most digital citizenship lessons are inadequate in cracking filter bubbles

Speaker(s):

  • Tim Jones, Library Media Specialist, Trinity High School
  • Meggan Trevey, Communications Consultant, Grace Taylor McDowell LLC
