This article by Jonathan Albright’s research I found interesting on the concept of digital sleuthing to expose fake news.
It also made me reflect on the efforts being made in my district to bring about more awareness on navigating the digital world. We recently brought a presenter the White Hatter, to Prince Rupert to speak to students about the fundamentals of traversing the internet safely. The emphasis is placed on understanding the realities of technology, such as concepts of privacy, security, positive opportunities, consequences of inappropriate behavior and cyberbullying. Students in grades 4 and 5 participated, as well parents were provided evening sessions. It was very well received in our district and increased overall confidence in how to use their technology safely. I would highly recommend it for anyone looking for something like this in their district.
