(Some adapted questions from Project Information Literacy)
What reasons do we have for accepting only specific sources?
To what extent are algorithms fostering misinformation in the information you and your students consume daily and what are some of the ways you are addressing it?
“Tell Me Sweet Little Lies” (see "articles" box on this page) focuses on the persistence and pervasiveness of racist malinformation that “comes through media, textbooks, religion, celebrated holidays, pop culture, and so many other venues.”
RESEARCH AND GETTING STARTED:
Project Information Literacy found in a national study about college students’ research habits that out of over 11,000 students surveyed from 50 U.S. colleges and Universities, 84% said getting started was the most difficult aspect of doing research.
In what ways can information literacy instruction in our classrooms provide resources and scaffolding to alleviate this problem?
