Abstract: As many schools and classrooms make a shift toward digital data, today's students must be able to navigate through vast amounts of evolving information. This workshop builds upon the necessity to create awareness of the need to teach students how to identify the most reliable sources of information, specifically those found on the internet. It further engages educators in practical examples and lesson ideas that will help them teach their students to use what they find on the internet to make better decisions and solve problems skillfully.
