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 10, Social Media.
“Today, in our series finale, we’re going to talk about the great white whale of navigating online information: your social media feed. Social media shapes both our online and offline behaviors from how we engage in communities and consume goods and services to influencing our thoughts and opinions. So let’s talk about how they really function – the good stuff and also the terrible stuff. We know that navigating our current information environment can be frustrating, and we hope this series has helped you develop the habits to navigate our digital world a bit more confidently.”
