@RobLunak that’s a human problem though, which transcends technology… not a issue!

A6 Google is still my favorite tool for fact checking. Use quotation marks to do exact phrase searches. Often enlightening…

@alprather nice, thanks! I hadn’t seen that one before :-)

via Twitter Web Client in reply to alprather

I’m glad to see “that hate site” about MLK is not on the first 10 pages of Google search results now for “Martin Luther King”

via tchat.io

A5 I’m reluctant to tweet links to false sites (like the sadly infamous MLK hate site) b/c that can increase their Google page rank

via tchat.io

julnilsmith Q5 What are some fake sites you know of that we can have students evaluate?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to urbie

@julnilsmith I think every school should have a “WikiPedia Editors Club” where students learn the dynamics of the politics it reveals

RobLunak A4 We share things we BELIEVE are true and facts don’t change what we BELIEVE. We think all information to the contrary is false.

via TweetDeck (retweeted on 8:36 PM, Feb 15th, 2016 via Twitter Web Client)

A4 Emotions definitely play a big role on disinformation that is shared online. Echo chambers amplify these streams loudly :-(

via tchat.io

julnilsmith Q4 How much fake material is shared online bc we WANT it to be true? What role do our emotions play?

julnilsmith Q3 “The Law of Incorrect Tweets” says false info travels faster & farther than truth. Is that true? Do you have examples of this?

@LachapelleB @dr_helgeson right… and there is more “clickbait” out there than ever before… :-(

via Twitter Web Client in reply to LachapelleB

A2 More people have access 2 the tools as well as the skills to manipulate media. Misrepresented videos from war zones = case in point

via tchat.io

andrewmead73 A2. Often people stop looking when they find something they agree with too, I find.

via TweetDeck (retweeted on 8:18 PM, Feb 15th, 2016 via Twitter Web Client)

A2 Reasons it’s hard to discern truth online go back to Neil Postman “Amusing Ourselves to Death.” Except now we have 100,000 channels

via tchat.io

A2 we live in a culture of immediacy, and often people forward/share/retweet before checking facts. It takes time & effort to think…

via tchat.io

julnilsmith Q2 So what are some reasons it’s so hard to figure out TRUTH online? pic.twitter.com/mt0B7AwkTe

@LachapelleB yes… I think @globalearner was sharing that in 1998 :-) Still many Ts & Ss today haven’t heard of it…

via tchat.io in reply to LachapelleB

A1 If something sounds outlandish, Google it & check sites like snopes.com. Many adults need to learn to do this too!

@burgessdave @casadyschoolokc thanks - I’m glad to join in! I love this topic, is so important!!!

via Twitter Web Client in reply to burgessdave

A1 In addition to news sources, recognize importance of following trusted individuals & considering their perspectives / shared links

via tchat.io

A1 Recognize all sources have bias, & try to discern bias by comparing views of several sources
