3 Tips to Improve Digital Media Literacy

Part of protecting your digital well-being is being able to distinguish between reality and fantasy online. Here are some tips to share with your students to help them become more critical consumers of digital and social media.

1. Before you begin reading, check to make sure the webpage is legitimate. Here's a great checklist to help.

2. Resist automatically clicking on the first few search results. Viral stories will lead the search engine results, but that doesn't mean they're true. Take time to find trusted sources.

3. Read laterally by checking the accuracy of the information across multiple articles and websites. After you've fact-checked, you can read the entire article.
