Digital & Media Literacy
After 20+ years of search engines, recent surveys show that across all age groups half of searchers can’t distinguish between paid ads and regular results in their searches. Credible information has become more difficult to find, and fake news is everywhere. Google is the primary place people search, but Google is also the world’s biggest and most profitable advertising company.
This keynote or workshop works through four areas of our lives to develop and reinforce critical thinking skills that enable better information discovery, assessment, and communication. Starting with our own bias and understanding, we work outwards to friends, society, and media.
