Workshop: Media Literacy as a Tool for Participating in our Digital Culture

Wednesday, April 12th, 2pm - 3pm

Location: Williams Center S204-ABC

Media literacy is a tool we can use to navigate today’s media ecosystem and the post-truth era. This workshop, which is being co-run by Dr. Angela McGowan-Kirsch and Honors student Grace Quinlivan, will give participants a toolkit that aims to help them understand and avoid spreading misinformation. Workshop participants will become proficient in the SIFT method. Consequently, participants will learn how to distinguish between credible information sources and disinformation and how to avoid erroneous information or correct it quickly once the content has been shared with their online network. This workshop is being offered in person and on Zoom. Zoom Registration link: https://fredonia-edu.zoom.us/meeting/register/tJ0sf-2hrjMqHdxUrS2hKw4RiM4fwjZassqo
