Column: Can librarians help solve the fake news problem?

Column: Can librarians help solve the fake news problem? | learning21andbeyond | Scoop.it
As a long-time academic librarian, I have spent a good part of my career teaching college students to think critically about information. For me, the recent spate of stories about large segments of the population falling for fake news stories was no surprise.
Nancy Jones's insight:
there is no question this is going to continue to be an important topic, but it is the responsibility of all adults, not just librarians, to cover this topic. This is especially important with the ubiquity of social media and electronic resources. It also falls under the category of media , digital, and information literacy.

The challenge facing libraries in an era of fake news

The challenge facing libraries in an era of fake news | learning21andbeyond | Scoop.it

Donald Barclay writes: "Thirty or 40 years ago, a student writing a research paper on the topic of acid rain might have needed to decide whether an article from a scientific journal like Nature was a more appropriate source than an article from a popular magazine like Time.

 

Today’s students, however, must know how to distinguish between articles published by genuine scholarly journals and those churned out by look-alike predatory and fake journals that falsely claim to be scholarly and peer-reviewed."

Mary Reilley Clark's curator insight, January 8, 12:18 PM

There's a link in this article to the Framework for Information Literacy for Higher Education from the Association of College and Research Libraries. Barclay notes that, "This new approach asks students to put in the time and effort required to determine the credibility and appropriateness of each information source for the use to which they intend to put it." If we in the primary and secondary libraries haven't educated students on how to do this, I don't think they'll have the mental stamina to do it in college! This makes me even more excited about the workshop our local state university is offering to get secondary library staff to understand what info literacy skills college students need, and to design collaborative lessons to help our students strengthen (or build) those skills.

while this presentation is really quite in depth (74 slides) it covers some important points. Semms like something that would be interesting to share with colleagues as it really covers a number of topics that apply to modern learners.
Ivon Prefontaine, PhD's curator insight, February 25, 8:32 PM
Digital tools and the theory about using them in teaching and learning are linked to the practical implications (praxis and pedagogy) of what that means and does not mean. At the heart of it all, is the slide that says we cannot describe the future. We have never been able to, so why is that surprising us?

Why SearchResearch skills matter in education

Why SearchResearch skills matter in education | learning21andbeyond | Scoop.it

Dan Russell writes: "There’s a difference between knowing that something exists, being able to find it rapidly with a moment’s worth of research, and then being able to pull together multiple sources of information into a coherent analysis. 

In particular, the research skills gap is growing.  Students (and teachers, and for that matter, employees) who are able to do rapid and accurate research on a topic have a substantial advantage in getting things done and deepening their understanding.  

What’s more, there’s an unexpected second-order effect: those that have developed and sharpened their research skills can grow those research skills over time, increasingly widening the gap from their peers who haven’t mastered that self-teaching nuance. Having research skills isn’t just an optional part of your education—they’re essential.  Especially once you know how to do the research to upgrade your research skills."

I learn so much reading Dan's blog! I'll be sharing this with teachers and students. Being able to Google a fact and being able to dig deeper to find the best resources and increase understanding is like the difference between knowing a tomato is a fruit, and knowing not to put it in a fruit salad. (Or better yet, knowing that in the United States we don't do that. In South Korea, cherry tomatoes in bingsu are a real treat!)

Terry Yelmene's curator insight, August 16, 2015 11:50 AM

A pretty well-reasoned, fundamental thought process for most knowledge work research.  This serves as an even better backward (there-to-here) model to guide the core research workflow process automation  a knowledge worker may want to devise, install.  Think work product-informed -> DevonThink structures -> DevonAgent w/'Active Filtered' automated searches.  The most important drivers here are - 'ethical' - (more than just multiple sources, a stage needs to be added at the work product stage to provide authenticity) and - 'bias' -  (a post automated search,  subsequent manual search for corroborating items selection to provide authority).

'Basic Skills' or 'Soft Skills:' What Should Be Taught and Tested? | #LEARNing2LEARN 

'Basic Skills' or 'Soft Skills:' What Should Be Taught and Tested? | #LEARNing2LEARN  | learning21andbeyond | Scoop.it
Friedman clearly notes how Googlers have found that “the old basic skills are not enough,” the more important advantage is ability or capacity to “learn above” the basic skills. That means, the ability to ask big questions, see connections, draw parallels and distinctions, think originally and follow leads, and do it objectively, creatively and collaboratively. The reason this is absolutely essential to Google, and to all organizations that are shaping the new economy, is that innovation and learning to learn new-stuff-on-the-fly are key to their success, and innovation demands perceiving what was not there before and doing whatever you can to learn it.

That is why I think Google’s articulation of the ‘soft skills’ of leadership, innovation, humility, teamwork, and ownership is so right-on. Soft they may be, but these skills constitute a combination that is essential to the core work of innovation, which rarely happens in instantaneous individual breakthroughs but rather evolves through collaborative group endeavors in which personal adaptability is a necessity.

Bali addresses the need to teach about digital skills and literacy in an authentic context, not a vacuum, and gives many concrete examples for doing that. 

 

I recently did a lesson on blogging with a 6th grade class. We looked at several tween and teen blogs, then reviewed good digital citizenship practices emphasizing student safety and copyright. Finally, each student created a blog on Blogger. Will they make mistakes? Probably. (When I specifically told them to keep it school appropriate, with nothing in the blog they wouldn't be allowed to do at school, and one student immediately started searching for "Call of Duty 3" images!)
