As a Teacher Librarian, part of my job is to teach students the skills they need to detect misinformation and vet credible sources. I am currently part of a Washington State organization called Teachers for an Informed Public focused on teaching those skills to students. The group holds monthly Zoom meetings open to any educator that focus on how we teach students the skills needed to evaluate information and sources.
Lessons created by TiP founders are available through WA State's Open Education Resource for any educator. They include lessons that ask students to evaluate their social media feeds, explore the YouTube algorithm for suggesting videos, SIFT (stop, investigate, find better coverage, trace) sources or stories, and more. These are skills all librarians should be teaching. Teacher Librarians could also teach them to parents so they can support media literacy at home.
We want people to become smart information consumers who can tell fact from fiction and who recognize bias. We also want to instill in citizens a sense of responsibility for the information they share. Each individual is responsible for their own learning and for the information they pass on to others. The truth matters, and it is relatively easy to uncover, even today.
