These days, students and teachers alike are spending a lot of time online. Among issues which affect those who "live on the Internet," information validity and "information overload" are frequently discussed. Both of these issues can be addressed through critical thinking. More specifically, students and teachers can undertake what Alexandre calls "online literacy," the Internet version of "media literacy." By evaluating, creating, and analyzing online content, anyone should be able to assess the validity of the information they process and decrease the effects of "information overload" in their online lives.

This session will explore online literacy in learning and teaching contexts.
