ALA Annual Conference 2023

Learning Session on Fighting Misinformation at #alaac23

After a full day in the Library Marketplace on Saturday, I started Sunday with a session, “Birds Aren’t Real: How Students Can Work Against Misinformation” by Robbie Barber, an electrical engineer turned teacher librarian from Georgia. She shared how this satirical conspiracy theory came to be, and how we can use it to teach our students to be wiser consumers of information.
