8 Must-Have Skills for Spotting Misinformation for 21st Century Students

8 Must-Have Skills for Spotting Misinformation for 21st Century Students | music and ELT | Scoop.it

As educators, we desperately need to do as Loren Collins states in her book, Bullspotting: Finding Facts in the Age of Misinformation.
