Helping High School Students Become Information Literate in the Age of Fake News
Cat McIlroy (she/her)
Librarian, Sexsmith Secondary School
Information literacy has always been a part of librarians' vernacular, but because students are facing an increasingly endless abyss of digital information and misinformation, it is now librarians' responsibility to show them how to navigate.
Cat will discuss how librarians can help high school students become information and digitally literate. The session will include ways to partner with teachers, engage with students in-person and virtually, and the methods to make things relevant and fun.
