Venables - Content Curation - the new wave of text dependent analysis, media literacy, and social media responsibility

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Students are entering a new era of digital media literacy where social media controls access to rapidly changing current events worldwide. Social media has become a way for users to curate information and share it broadly - and if curation is done without a distinguishing eye, a student risks creating an echo chamber of false sources confirming one another and ultimately leading to a grave misunderstanding of the current events unfolding. Companies such as Google and Facebook are taking aim at fake news sites but rather than place the responsibility to survey information appropriately on these organizations, we aim to provide students with the tools they need to curate responsibly.

This session will walk an attendee through the compelling reasons why content curation is a skill that must be taught to our students, the content and standard connections in the classroom, and the student workflow for appropriate curation.

Attendees will walk away with compelling reasons to teach this vital skill to students as well as the tools for successfully implementing a content curation lesson in the classroom.
