OECD Podcasts: Is digital media literacy the answer to our disinformation woes?
Critical thinking has never been so...critical. How do we distinguish fact from opinion when there is so much inaccurate material online? What is true? What exactly is disinformation? This podcasts offered by OECD will help you answer these questions and many more.
Education can help us understand how to examine our sources, ask clarifying questions, and comprehend how algorithms affect the information we receive through education. And since none of this needs to be taught in STEM-based computer science classes, digital media and algorithmic literacy can be deftly incorporated across the curricula.
They discuss about this: Kara Brissin-Boivin, Director of Research of Mediasmarts, Canada's Center for Digital and Media Literacy, and the author of a recent working paper on digital media literacy, the OECD analyst Jordan Hill. They will talk about what critical thinking in the twenty-first century should entail.
