Session participants will focus on the Resource and Research strands of the Information Literacy theme. As they explore hoaxes and urban legends, they will actively participate in finding, sorting, evaluating, discussing and disseminating various types of information. They will also examine Wikipedia and several search engines (including Google) with a critical evaluation framework in mind.
