PRE-REGISTRATION WILL OPEN ON JANUARY 11, 2024 AT 8:00P.M. and CLOSE FEBRUARY 11 AT 8:00 P.M.
We have decided to start pre-registration on January 11th to make sure everyone is informed of the start time and has time to check out the sessions as the first week back to school can be quite hectic.
FOR PRE-REGISTERED SESSIONS PLEASE USE THE PRE-REGISTRATION LINK BELOW THE SESSION DESCRIPTION IN SCHED. Adding the session to your Sched schedule does not mean you are pre-registered. The number in the title shows how many will be allowed to attend the session. We do allow more names to be added, but they will be on the waiting list. This is explained on the pre-registration page.

Tools To Help Students Decipher Online AI and Misinformation/Disinformation Using Lateral Reading Strategies and Recognition of Bias Vulnerabilities

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Today's online educational experience is so fraught with issues related to AI and misinformation/disinformation that Critical Thinking and Evaluating Information tools used on Kids Boost Immunity such as CRAAP/TRAAP are no longer sufficient. In this interactive workshop, teachers become students and experience new lessons designed to illustrate ways that personal biases are exploited by makers of misinformation/disinformation to target vulnerabilities in people. Then using lateral reading strategies students decipher and deconstruct information to assess accuracy. An accompanying grade-appropriate critical inquiry research resource reinforces literacy-building and deciphering skills. Applicable to multiple subject areas and teachers of grades 4 to 12.
