Evaluating our biases and online communications
Sociologist Zeynep Tufekci wrote in an MIT Technology Review article, “belonging is stronger than facts.” We show that belonging online, on social media posts, retweets, what we share and who we follow. This webinar will speak to the educational need to talk about media beyond fact vs. fiction to in-group vs. out-group. It will discuss our cognitive biases and cognitive blind spots and research-based strategies evaluate information.
