Critical Digital Fluency: Agency and Activism in Today’s Polluted Digital World
As educators and learners, we are grappling with what it means to live and learn with our polluted digital environments. As misinformation and hate spreads on the web, it is difficult to not despair. For those of us involved in online teaching and learning there are some unique challenges and implications. In this session, Amy Collier will discuss how critical digital literacy in education can begin to move us toward action. She will highlight work that is happening at Middlebury, and other higher education institutions, and propose steps we can take to make positive change in our digital information environments.
