Developing Digital Citizens - Resources and Strategies SBEC logo

Librarians play a vital role in equipping people to participate in an increasingly complicated information ecosystem that at times seems overrun with things like fake news and misinformation. It can be challenging for young people, in particular, to develop skills they need to deal with misinformation and engage as digital citizens who can consume, create, and share information online.

This webinar will introduce librarians to strategies, techniques, and resources they can use to help people develop increasingly vital information and news literacy skills. These skills can ensure that people can not only recognize and combat misinformation but can also develop as informed and empowered digital citizens.

Participants will:

  • Identify factors that contribute to misinformation
  • Discover and examine the connections between information and news literacy skills and competencies
  • Develop an understanding of digital citizenship
  • Explore resources, techniques, and strategies to help people develop information literacy, news, literacy, and digital citizenship skills

Presented by Sarah Morris, Learning and Assessment Librarian at The University of Texas at Austin and Liz Philippi, School Program Coordinator at the Texas State Library and Archives Commission.
