Eli Pariser Predicted the Future. Now He Can’t Escape It. | Learning Literacies | Scoop.it

In the aftermath of the US election, as pundits blamed highly biased media outlets and fake news stories for Trump’s win, Eli Pariser appeared to be some sort of augur. In 2011, he’d written the book warning that Facebook and Google’s personalization tools would drive us to become ever more partisan by showing us only the news and information with which we already agreed. He called it The Filter Bubble.

Fake News and Filter Bubbles: Teaching Web Literacy Concepts at Brooklyn Public Library

Fake News and Filter Bubbles: Teaching Web Literacy Concepts at Brooklyn Public Library | Learning Literacies | Scoop.it
My first big assignment in 2017 (aside from successfully pulling off our annual conference) was to create a training plan for a 3-hour session for librarians at Brooklyn Public Library on web literacy. I was grateful for the input of BPL’s Director of Customer Experience on shaping the plan for the day, and thrilled as always to work with one of my web literacy partners in crime to make the training a success.
