How do learners across grade levels consider authority of online information? An IMLS-funded study asks whether STEM students are format agnostic. Working with late primary, secondary, community college, undergraduate, and graduate students, the survey seeks to determine how and if students identify containers when making judgments relating to the academic use of digital resources. Hear preliminary findings from search simulations across grade levels. Engage in a conversation about the implications. Participate in the research! Join us for a lively, face-to-face and back-channeled conversation.
