Web Literacy for Student Fact Checkers

Web Literacy for Student Fact Checkers | E-Learning Suggestions, Ideas, and Tips | Scoop.it
This is an unabashedly practical guide for the student fact-checker. It supplements generic information literacy with the specific web-based techniques that can get you closer to the truth on the web more quickly.

We will show you how to use date filters to find the source of viral content, how to assess the reputation of a scientific journal in less than five seconds, and how to see if a tweet is really from the famous person you think it is or from an impostor.

We’ll show you how to find pages that have been deleted, figure out who paid for the web site you’re looking at, and whether the weather portrayed in that viral video actual matches the weather in that location on that day. We’ll show you how to check a Wikipedia page for recent vandalism, and how to search the text of almost any printed book to verify a quote. We’ll teach you to parse URLs and scan search result blurbs so that you are more likely to get to the right result on the first click. And we’ll show you how to avoid baking confirmation bias into your search terms.

Kellie Wheatley's curator insight, May 9, 9:25 PM

A great site for outlining the implementation of technology in the classroom. It outlines the most effective integration methods and appropriate situations for certain digital formats and platforms. 

It details the need for personalised learning through flexibility, progression and individuality, all of which are based off modern learning methods. In specific regards to technology, this article explains:

- virtual classrooms

- audio and video integration

- data interpreting

- student mentoring

- transitioning from consumers to producers (more hands-on)

- truth vs untruth

- social environments of learning (an online presence)

- learning camps (a place to find individuality)

- transitioning through schools (students, environments and        teachers)


These ideas are important to consider, particularly for pre-service teachers like myself. These are key aspects to students being able to move forward in regards to technology, and this publication outlines all of that. The aspects which I found most beneficial, and that I could relate to were the transitioning from consumers to producers and teaching through transitions of the schooling system. Both of these promote a more hands-on classroom with students being able to apply their skills, while being taught and supported by their teacher.

Darren Schmidt's comment, May 14, 8:42 AM
Are these trends, and not technologies?
Terry Smith's curator insight, June 9, 5:32 PM
I re-scooped this article specifically because it deals with how technology has influenced personalized learning particularly in online environments.  The article goes through the various ways that technology is reshaping, adapting and enhancing how students learn.
