Knowing how to find and assess high quality information is not an inherent characteristic of the digital native; consequently, doing so has become more important, particularly when part of media creation. The Youth and Media Lab at the Berkman Center for Internet & Society has developed a strategic guide for creating learning activities that foster greater understanding and awareness of information quality among youth. Participants will work in groups to collaboratively create new learning activities using the YaM curriculum guide. Working either analogue or digital, participants will be able to create a curricular module and engage in the design process.Kellen Auditorium, Sheila C.
