Great TED Talk: Teaching Students to Understand Bias
This past weekend, I caught up on some TED talks. TED stands for "technology, entertainment, and design." It is a fabulous repository of interesting talks that present interesting ideas and thoughts. The most recent talk (embedded bel0w) I watched discussed how medical companies use trial results in their publications. It is an interesting perspective on bias. I think it could be a great vehicle for introducing media and information literacy to students. Enjoy!
