Easy Steps to Online Media Literacy


In this age of digital EVERYTHING, it can be a challenge for patrons to know just how to take control of their online experience. We in libraries are often assisting patrons with navigating myriad information sources. This session is designed to show easy ways patrons can achieve being good information consumers. We cover why misinformation is so pervasive, ways to identify questionable content, and ends with four steps to share with patrons to guide them to media literacy. We will touch on sites that can help with fact-checking and participants will receive a list of sites to check information validity.
