How can we learn to reject fake news in the digital world?

How can we learn to reject fake news in the digital world? | Going Digital | Scoop.it
Thomas P. Mackey, SUNY Empire State College and Trudi Jacobson, University at Albany, State University of New York The circulation of fake news through social media in the 2016 presidential election has raised several concerns about online information.

Sarah McElrath's insight:
Audible has been a game changer for me. I never would have been able to keep up with all the reading needed to book talk books from 2 large libraries without audiobooks. Now I am always reading. And seriously, I HATED running until I started listening to books while I ran. Now there are times I can't wait to run so I can listen to my book with no interruptions. And that running dropped my cholesterol substantially. Please vote for me--and consider listening to Audible.
