“Facebook’s campus in Menlo Park, California” Found the Atlantic 7, May, 2017, The Age of Misinformation.
I saw this article that one of my previous professors posted that was in the Atlantic journal regarding Technology and I read it. Then, I thought perfect timing. We are overwhelmed by information everyday and how do we decide what is good information from bad information. This article made me pause to ask who is responsible? Google, Microsoft, Facebook, Twitter, the gullible public, etc.
I used the CRAAP Test with some classes this school year to help evaluate websites and to get a handle on false and inaccurate information online. What are your thoughts? Do you think Facebook, Twitter, Google, or Microsoft has a place in helping us to recognize real facts versus false information. Please read this article by Jonathan Zittrain and let us know your thoughts….
Facebook, Twitter, Google, and Microsoft must recognize a special responsibility for the parts of their services that host or inform public conversation according to JONATHAN ZITTRAIN. Do you think librarians and teachers can help?
I want to hear from you! Library students need to have a minimum of three points in your response to this post.
Thanks for blogging with me this school year…
