In this free, online, one-week bootcamp, participants will take the KQED Teach course “Finding & Evaluating Information” along with a supportive community of fellow educators, and participate in additional activities not available in the self-paced version of the course.
The bootcamp will cover:
- Guidelines for evaluating the reliability of a resource
- How search engine algorithms shape the information you access
- Methods fact-checkers use to evaluate websites (and other forms of media)
- Identifying altered images
Bootcamp participants will create a lesson plan for evaluating information that they can implement in their classroom, and will walk away with a collection of source-checking resources they can share with students. Participants will earn a certificate of course completion when they finish all components of the course.
