“Janelle Hagen is a school librarian whose job goes far beyond checking out books. She and many other librarians are equipping students to fight through lies, distortion and trickery to find their way to truth.Helping students become smarter evaluators of the information that floods into their lives has become increasingly necessary in an era in which fake news is a constant.Two University of Washington professors recently announced a new class that will focus on the ways data are misused to mislead the public. Younger students may need guidance even more.” (via The Seattle Times)
