Seth's Blog: Who do you know?

Seth's Blog: Who do you know? | Educational Leadership and Technology | Scoop.it
Let's define "know" as... you're connected with them, in real life, by email or through a direct relationship online.
Ivon Prefontaine's insight:

"the online social network is anti-gerrymandered." I disagree with this. Too many online relationships, if we want to call them that, are superficial and, when we bump up against the uncomfortable things, we can turn away. We can pretend that is still out there. Despite, this social media presents powerful possibilities if we develop better practices.

Crap detection for content curators. Is it time for everyone who shares stuff they find on the Internet to think of themselves as content curators. Beats being a rumor monger or Typhoid Mary of misinformation.

Could be used when teaching evaluation of online content / critical thinking skills.

Ruveanna Hambrick's curator insight, October 2, 2014 10:30 AM

This is a good source for knowing how to "crap detect" not only for news websites and blog posts but also for social media claims as well.
