All teachers have had students turn in papers with content that was either plagiarized (subtly or blatantly, “accidentally” or intentionally) from online sources, or used sources of, let’s just say “questionable credibility.”  We’ve all had to explain why Wikipedia isn’t an acceptable source (btw: it’s not because Wikipedia is unreliable).  Some teachers have explored ideas of internet publishing, discussed why trolling exists, and why comment threads seems to bring out the worst in humanity.  This panel will discuss media literacy as it pertains to students in high school and beyond.  We’ll explore issues from assessing the credibility of sources, citation, digital citizenship, creating content, and navigating modern literacy without becoming a jerk.  Part of this discussion will also explore these issues of literacy as they relate to students’ transition from high school to college.
