Media Literacy in the Age of Big Data

Mar 10, 2022

11:00am – 12:00pm CT

Our data-rich culture is shaping the definition of what it means to be a critical consumer of media. Modern media use data to motivate people to feel, trust, or act—which puts those without requisite data literacy skills at a crushing disadvantage. This session convenes some of the top minds in news and data literacy to discuss the evolving landscape of media in the age of data, the importance of data literacy for combating misinformation, and tools to support educators in teaching these skills.
