In today’s world, everyone can be a publisher – but not all authors are equally credible or truthful. This hands-on session introduces tools for teachers to build their students’ media literacy skills and learn to authenticate, analyze and evaluate content from a variety of sources and platforms. Then, guided by a Wiki expert, participants will get a deep dive into decoding crowd-sourced websites and behind-the-scenes investigative tips for using Wikipedia for classwork and research. BYOD recommended.
