Becoming critical thinkers online

Becoming critical thinkers online

It is so important that we teach young people to be critical thinkers when viewing online content.  There is so much that we see every day posted online, that it is often hard to tell what is true and what isn’t.  I have seen so many adults taken in by various images and content on social media, that we have to ask ourselves, if adults can be fooled so easily, then it must be even harder for young people to tell the difference between fact and fiction.  Childnet International have launched a brilliant resource – Trust Me – to help young people become critical thinkers online.  There are resources for both primary and secondary schools.  Download your pack today and get your students thinking – critically!
