Critical Inquiry and Meaning Making: As students, you use digital tools to find information that’s right for your task. You look for information from different places and check if the information is correct. You organize the information you find based on its importance or topic, and then you try to understand what it means. Finally, you use your own knowledge and experience to decide what you think about it.

Meaning making refers to the process of understanding and interpreting information in a way that is relevant and useful to oneself. It involves analyzing and reflecting on information and experiences, and using that understanding to draw conclusions, form opinions, and make decisions. In other words, it’s the process of making sense of things and figuring out what they mean to you.

Are you a teacher who wants their students to get better at using digital tools for learning and making sense of information online? Do you want to know how to choose the right digital tools for your tasks and understand their strengths and weaknesses? Join us for an upcoming webinar on Critical Inquiry and Meaning Making!

In this webinar, we will cover five key concepts that will help you develop your critical thinking skills and make meaning of the information you find online. We’ll talk about how to make good choices about using digital tools, how to get better at finding and organizing information, how to check if information is correct and useful, how to carefully choose information and create collections of things that show your learning, and how to understand the impact of digital tools on the way we think and act.

You’ll learn how to:

  • Use digital tools effectively for learning and creating
  • Identify trustworthy sources of information and avoid fake news
  • Evaluate information for accuracy, fairness, and relevance
  • Draw your own conclusions based on critical analysis
  • Share your work with others in clear and accurate ways
  • Understand the impact of digital tools on our culture and society

The webinar is open to all students who want to develop their digital literacy skills and become more confident and capable users of technology. Don’t miss this opportunity to learn from experts in the field and connect with other students who share your interests and goals.
