Talk/Webinar, Workshop, Politically sensitive
Can a hair dryer stop the coronavirus? Did a woman in the U.S. give birth to 17 children at once? Do monkeys live on the moon? The answer to each is, “No.” But why do people still believe these things in the news? And what about other questions that might be more difficult to answer, such as “Are our elections safe from manipulation?” or “Is climate change real or fake?” In this session, we will work through the problems and challenges of mis- and dis-information that appear in social media and in the news. Some of the problems are political and ideological but also have to do with the technologies that we use to share information. Together, we will also explore some of the online tools that we can use to measure “facts” and see if the images and ideas that we see and share are based in truth – or degrees of truth. All are welcome to this session and would be most-interactive if you can join on two devices, one to view the talk and the other two test out some of the online resources for deciphering disinformation. We will use Zoom and the Zoom chat feature to interact with each other, where applicable. Alternatively, just sit back and enjoy the discussion.
