Crowdsourcing Fifty (or so) ways to leave your paper:

Crowdsourcing Fifty (or so) ways to leave your paper: | School Librarians | Scoop.it
Every couple of years I attach a list of alternate project ideas to my September faculty newsletter.  As I began to update those ideas this time around, it occurred to me that it would be a much better list if we built it together.

Information Forensics: Five Case Studies on How to Verify Crowdsourced Information from Social Media | Truthiness in Digital Media

"False information can cost lives. But no information can also cost lives, especially in a crisis zone. Indeed, information is perishable so the potential value of information must be weighed against the urgency of the situation. Correct information that arrives too late is useless. Crowdsourced information can provide rapid situational awareness, especially when added to a live crisis map. But information in the social media space may not be reliable or immediately verifiable. This may explain why humanitarian (and news) organizations are often reluctant to leverage crowdsourced crisis maps. Many believe that verifying crowdsourced information is either too challenging or impossible.The purpose of this paper is to demonstrate that concrete strategies do exist for the verification of geo-referenced crowdsourced social media information.The study first provides a brief introduction to crisis mapping and argues that crowdsourcing is simply non-probability sampling.Next, five case studies comprising various efforts to verify social media are analyzed to demonstrate how different verification strategies work."

So-Called "Digital Natives" Not Media Savvy, New Study Shows - ReadWrite.com

So-Called "Digital Natives" Not Media Savvy, New Study Shows - ReadWrite.com | School Librarians | Scoop.it

""In Google we trust."That may very well be the motto of today's young online users, a demographic group often dubbed the "digital natives" due their apparent tech-savvy. Having been born into a world where personal computers were not a revolution, but merely existed alongside air conditioning, microwaves and other appliances, there has been (a perhaps misguided) perception that the young are more digitally in-tune with the ways of the Web than others.

 

That may not be true, as it turns out. A new study coming out of Northwestern University, discovered that college students have a decided lack of Web savvy, especially when it comes to search engines and the ability to determine the credibility of search results. Apparently, the students favor search engine rankings above all other factors. The only thing that matters is that something is the top search result, not that it's legit."

This article reinforces the need for teacher librarians in schools - teaching students how to research and evaluate websites, not just taking the first hit on Google!
