Let’s Get Digital!

With the hot topic of “fake news,” digital citizenship should be on every educator’s plate if it was not already. However, we tend to just think of fake news as articles from sources that are not accredited. What about the other “fake news”? You know – the kind that you see because of the “filter bubble.” That is – this is the news that is built upon your own interest biases. We owe it to ourselves and our students to discuss this.

With that in mind, I’ve updated my “Let’s Get Digital” presentation to include an interactive activity at the beginning that can be used with students or staff to discuss fake news. Check out “Let’s Get Digital – Interactive.” Check out Fennovation.org for more digital citizenship resources.
