Teaching Skepticism for Postitive Change, Roundtable on Information Literacy
Advances in technology have changed students’ ability to access information along with the speed at which discussions take place. While there are many positive and negative impacts from those advances, one significant change involves the speed at which communication takes place, impacting information accuracy and impeding student ability to assess information quality. This roundtable proposes to advance the discussion in an information literacy context to identify information quality issues and challenges, discuss possible solutions, and provide greater support for students to make truly informed decisions, to make better decisions, and make their world a better place.
