Mike Caulfield is definitely one of my favorite thinkers and writers on Open Education and Online Media Literacy. I was excited to see he has been working with the amazing Canadian non-profit Civix to create a series of videos with tips to enhance our online verification skills.
The videos are short and direct, sometimes a bit too much, but Caulfield already addresses this point in his dedicated blog post, which I personally recommend to read before you use or watch the videos.
However, I believe they could be extremely useful in a classroom setting, and a great way to introduce students to essential skills of media literacy. As usual, Civix has done a great job editing and working the videos, and the whole thing (4 videos) doesn’t take more than 12 minutes to watch. Excellent resources to kickstart your digital literacy class.
