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

8 Must-Have Skills for Spotting Misinformation for 21st Century Students | Responsible Digital Citizenship | Scoop.it

"A 21st century skill that all students need badly is the ability to spot misinformation. As educators, we desperately need to do as Loren Collins states in her book, Bullspotting: Finding Facts in the Age of Misinformation. We need to "arm our students with baloney-detecting tools to prevent false and unsupported beliefs so that such beliefs can be better contained." In other words, 21st century educators need to equip our students with "baloney-detection" skills."


Via John Evans
EdTechSandyK's insight:

From the Blog: "In the 21st century, we as educators have a moral imperative to make sure our students are equipped with proper "baloney-detection tools" so that they can avoid being mislead and misguided in a flood of information."


Based on the "facts" I see my adult friends posting on Facebook all the time, these are must-have skills for EVERYONE, and it is essential teachers become better bullspotters so they may pass those skills along to their students.

Louise Robinson-Lay's curator insight, December 30, 2012 2:34 AM

This is a crucial area that can sometimes get overlooked or exaggerated when implementing technological innovations. It is imperative that teachers address it throughout school.

Bronwyn Desjardins's curator insight, May 11, 2013 6:41 AM

Important as this is fast becomming the way employers search potential employees. Forget CVs, think about your digital footprint says about you.
