Web Literacy for Student Fact-Checkers

November 5, 2018

This guide from Dr. Mike Caulfield shows the user how to use date filters to find the source of viral content, how to assess the reputation of a scientific journal in less than five seconds, and how to see if a tweet is really from the famous person or from an impostor. It’ll show the user how to find pages that have been deleted, figure out who paid for the website, and more.  In other words, this guide will help the user become “web literate” by showing the unique opportunities and pitfalls of searching for truth on the web.
