Product description

Review

“In a landscape filled with misinformation, information literacy is more vital than ever. In Developing Digital Detectives, Jennifer LaGarde and Darren Hudgins provide a blueprint for teachers to empower their students to be critical thinkers of the information they encounter. Each lens focuses on the ‘why’ and the ‘how’ with practical ideas that educators can implement in the classroom. The authors provide a bold rethink of information literacy with a focus on the overlap between information literacy and social-emotional learning.” – John Spencer, Ed.D., professor and author --This text refers to the paperback edition.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic Resource For Teachers and Society in General!
Reviewed in the United States on 5 October 2021
I am teaching computer skills classes for a small rural public school in North Carolina. The book gave me several ideas of lessons to teach students about disinformation. We started with a mini lesson on the power of memes for triggering emotional responses and sharing false information. The evidence locker linked from the book had all the materials I needed including an interactive meme game which the students loved!

The book taught me that we need to train a #digitaldetectivesquad that recognizes when things like memes and a variety of social media posts triggers emotions. The books outlines in detail many strategies for navigating and recognizing those feelings. Readers are challenged to ask thought provoking questions that help us determine credibility clues.

As the book states “Big tech isn't going to save us. We have to save ourselves.” And this is some of the most important work we must do as a society. “Developing Digital Detectives is a must have book for teachers but really anyone who wants to be part of the solution in combatting disinformation and finding truth.
