We're excited to announce our second of three Library 2.017 mini-conferences: "Digital Literacy + Fake News," which will be held online (and for free) on Thursday, June 1st, from 12:00 - 3:00 pm US-Pacific Daylight Time (click for your own time zone).
This event is being organized in partnership with futurist Bryan Alexander, who will serve as moderator for the opening panel and as the closing keynote speaker. Invited panelists and presenters will look deeply at the foundational relationship of libraries and librarians to media, information, and digital literacy.
We invite all library professionals, employers, LIS students, and educators to provide input and participate this event.
This is a free event, being held online.
to attend live or to receive the recording links afterwards.
Please also join the Library 2.0 network to be kept updated on this and future events.
What does “digital literacy” mean in an era shaped by the Internet, social media, and staggering quantities of information? How is it that the fulfillment of human hopes for a open knowledge society seem to have resulted in both increased skepticism of, and casualness with, information? What tools and understanding can library professionals bring to a world that seems to be dominated by fake news?
In this Library 2.107 mini-conference, we start with the foundational relationship of libraries and librarians to media, information, and now digital literacy, and then we ask some pointed questions. How should library and information professionals address the issues of fake news, propaganda, and biased research? What technical skills are required for critical thinking in the digital age? As learners increasingly move from just consuming information to also socially producing it, what are the new requisite skills of critical thinking and decision-making? What are appropriate uses for social media when conducting research? What is digital citizenship in a global, globally-diverse, and often globally-fragmented world? What work on digital literacy is available, what frameworks already support these efforts, what are the perspectives of the leading thinkers?
Participants are encouraged to use #library2017 on their social media posts leading up to and during the event.
The School of Information at San José State University is the founding conference sponsor, and additional support has been provided by Follett. Please register as a member of the Library 2.0 network to be kept informed of future events.
