Mike Caulfield - Web Literacy for Student Fact Checkers
Mike Caulfield's "nstruction manual to reading on the modern internet." Fact checking, detecting bias, getting around as a web-literate person. Built with PressBooks.

> We’ll show you how to find pages that have been deleted, figure out who paid for the web site you’re looking at, and whether the weather portrayed in that viral video actual matches the weather in that location on that day. We’ll show you how to check a Wikipedia page for recent vandalism, and how to search the text of almost any printed book to verify a quote. We’ll teach you to parse URLs and scan search result blurbs so that you are more likely to get to the right result on the first click. And we’ll show you how to avoid baking confirmation bias into your search terms.

> In other words, we’ll teach you web literacy by showing you the unique opportunities and pitfalls of searching for truth on the web. Crazy, right?

Annie Leonard - The Story of Bottled Water = Script
I saw this first in OUP's Sustainability reader and was struck by acknowledgement that the notes are longer than the text they note. Points to Leonard for illustrating that the finished text is the tip of a well-researched iceberg.

Watters: Student Data is the New Oil: MOOCs, Metaphor, and Money
A direct connect to students on what's collected and who profits (spoiler: it's not the student). Added bonus, Why I Don't Use D2l Reason #11: "Degree Compass [data mining and analytics"Instead it uses predictive analytics techniques based on grade and enrollment data to rank courses according to factors that measure how well each course might help the student progress through their program."] was acquired by the learning management system Desire2Learn in early 2013 for an undisclosed amount of money." One for FYC and A&E to read.

Digital Breadcrumbs, Purdy and Walker
Framed in a google search clone. "We call for examining the ways in which researchers actually use online resources for scholarly projects rather than lamenting how these researchers are not following prescribed models of efficient, purposeful online research. We, in other words, seek to consider the value of researchers' existing practices. In this early research, we find that for the participant-researchers in this study:

Multiple online resources are used together in unadvertised, collaborative ways.
“Unstructured” online research can be inventional."

Why the Future of College isn’t on Campus | Brazen Life
Short post that will be good to critique in A&E. Lovely little half-truths, gross generalizations, even some bullet-proofing of arguments - all make it attractive to buy into, but weak and in the end, nothing new. Can also come at this from a distortion of ethos: apparent practical wisdom that is built of unquestioned aphorisms and placebos. Can see it by asking if the ethos is open to an alternative. Mis-leading title: this is back focused, not future. Nothing new here. Summed up in: Yes, it's apparent in your writing that you learned very little in college.

Twelve Theses on Wikileaks (with Patrice Riemens
[via if:books]. 12 entry points to the WikiLeaks discussion. From Amsterdam, it reads like an internal Pentagon report. "We do not think that taking a stand for or against WikiLeaks is what matters most. WikiLeaks is here to stay, until it either scuttles itself or is destroyed by opposing forces. Our point is rather to (try to) assess and ascertain what WikiLeaks can, could — and maybe even should — do, and to help formulate how “we” could relate to and interact with WikiLeaks."
