Close Reading the Internet: Developing Critical Thinkers

Thursday, November 29, 2018 - 1:00-2:00 pm PST

How do we teach students to be critical thinkers online? What do students need to consider when they search online, and how do they evaluate the results they get? In this edWebinar, Ben Cogswell, elementary school teacher, coach, and edtech specialist, will present strategies for teaching students to be effective researchers and critical consumers of online media. He’ll explain how online queries work and the steps to take to determine whether a webpage is trustworthy.

This edWebinar is geared toward K–12 teachers in all subject areas. There will be time to get your questions answered at the end of Ben’s presentation.
