I love this guy.
Class members should have seen this on their aggregators, but this is too current — too important to let slide.
My idea is simply this. How can we use an event like this, and all of the news sources that are available on a breaking, global story in our classrooms? How can we teach kids about which sources of information are valuable in the midst of swirling rumour? They must be able to evaluate the worthiness of primary information surces at a time like this. There are many different channels of information available. How can our understanding be collated and improved instead of swamped by information and rumour?
This is a real test of information literacy skills.
Clarence is right. This is a real test. More than a test for his kids, it’s a test for us. We *think* we get it.
