In our new world of fake news and "alternative facts", teaching students how to navigate and evaluate information is challenging. 

Join us to learn about the right combination of tools to teach students essential information literacy skills so they can evaluate sources and find authoritative content for their research needs. 

We will also discuss how to teach students about the consequences of disinformation so that they will be motivated to avoid it in their school, work and personal lives.


Specifically, attendees will learn:

  1.  Concrete, student-relatable examples of how disinformation can harm
  2. Instructions for how to use the "IF I APPLY" framework to help students identify and move past their emotions and biases with regard to research topics
  3. Methods involved in lateral reading-reading "around" a source to determine if it is reliable
