Adults and students alike are bombarded with information and misinformation daily. In the midst of a global pandemic, conspiracy theorists are taking full advantage to promote incorrect data or flat-out lies, and this is nothing new. From the effectiveness of vaccines to 9/11, the goal of some is to manipulate facts to promote agendas for various reasons.
In an age where information and data are at our fingertips, it’s important to understand how to tell the best from the rest. Where did it come from? What can we use effectively and what can we not?
In this edWebinar, the third in a four-part infographic series, we take a step back to look at information and data to determine how we can best understand where it comes from, what strategies we can teach and utilize to help students (and adults too!) to be more data literate, what sources we can trust, and how to employ healthy skepticism to make the best choices about data and information.
This recorded edWebinar will be of interest to K-12 teachers, librarians, school and district leaders, technology coaches, and instructional coaches.
