Join our online discussion group on navigating digital information – scroll down for registration link leading to the session on Zoom, Thursday, Apr. 1, 3:00 pm.
This discussion group will explore topics including how to fact-check information, how to evaluate sources, and how to distinguish fact from opinion, and is moderated by Katherine Murphy.
Centered on the Crash Course YouTube series, Navigating Digital Information, here is what we will learn in Episode 7, Evaluating Photos & Videos.
“With the amount of fake and doctored photos and videos out there, how can we know what to trust? Most of us are used to thinking that “seeing is believing” but as technology makes it easier and easier to spread unreliable content online it’s more important than ever for us to read laterally, check for context, and always fact check suspicious content – even if it looks real.”
