Critical Literacy in a Digital World

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

If we want students to become the empowered readers our society needs, they must become thoughtful readers who can critically evaluate text, especially online. This session will show you ways to help students navigate today’s complex information landscape by deeply analyzing what’s on the screen, behind the screen, and beyond the screen. We will be looking at several websites, including Checkology and Channel One, that will be useful for teachers and students to understand media literacy, bias, and evaluating information. Bring laptops or iPads!
