Crash Course Navigating Digital Information

You may be familiar with Crash Course educational videos from John Green.  They’re FREE and they cover a whole range of high school courses.  Now there’s a series of videos to help you become a great researcher.

The internet is full of information – good, bad, and in between. Misinformation is everywhere on the internet, and it can be hard to know if a website is a reliable source for your research assignment.  

In Navigating Digital Information, you will learn hands-on skills to help you evaluate the information you read online. After watching the eleven videos, you will be able to:

* Examine information using the same skills and questions as fact-checkers

* Read laterally to learn more about the authority and perspective of sources

* Evaluate different types of evidence, from photos and videos to infographics

* Understand how search engines and social media feeds work

* Break bad internet habits like impatience and passivity, and build better ones
