Students are bombarded with information from multiple platforms in all areas of their lives, but they need skills to evaluate whether it is credible and how to identify partial truths and bias. The goal of the NextGen Information Literacy Project is to produce responsible consumers of information who use critical thinking skills to evaluate the massive amount of news and media they will encounter in their lives.
NextGen Information Literacy provides:
Lessons and resources that draw from Developing Digital Detectives: Essential Lessons for Discerning Fact from Fiction in the “Fake News” Era by Jennifer LaGarde and Darren Hudgins.
Professional development templates and guides to support faculty and staff in their efforts to incorporate information literacy in their regular lessons and routines.
