I tell my students that the single most important thing they can do to avoid falling victim to and spreading disinformation is to actually REMEMBER to stop and do a credibility check. I can (and do) provide my students with many tools for evaluating information, but if they don't remember to use the tools, then the tools are worthless. I have found that many students get overwhelmed by detailed fact-checking algorithms. They think fact-checking is difficult and complicated, and that it will take way too long. I tell them (and give them examples to prove it) that most of the time, a simple credibility check can be done in less than a minute. I don't mean to suggest that there are never reasons to conduct a more in-depth evaluation. When the stakes are high (a research project; making a decision to purchase something expensive, etc.), it's important to be careful and thorough. But realistically? Skimming through social media? If I can convince my students that 30 seconds can make a difference, they're much more likely to see fact-checking as something they can actually incorporate into their everyday lives as opposed to just seeing it as an academic, school-only activity. I have seen very bright, well-informed adults pass on disinformation not because they didn't know how to check for credibility, but because they just didn't bother to (or forgot to) do it. I try to help my students develop a sustainable media and information literacy habit.
