This weekend, post the inauguration of Donald Trump, I am reflecting on the importance of social movements and how the digital literacy is incredibly important. I follow Vox, who posted a photo comparison between the 2009 inauguration and the one held the other day, there was substantially less people at the inauguration for Donald Trump as there were for President Obama. All this is happening while Trump is claiming record crowds. It makes me reflect on the importance of the digital world and how important fact checking and proof actually is. In on of our readings this week I found this quote especially true of for the future generation, “Fostering such social skills and cultural competencies requires a more systemic approach to media education in the United States. Everyone involved in preparing young people to go out into the world has contributions to make in helping students acquire the skills they need to become full participants in our society. Schools, after-school programs, and parents have distinctive roles to play as they do what they can in their own spaces to encourage and nurture these skills.” (Jenkins, 4). We must teach our students how to fact check, how to interact, and contribute to the content of the internet in a productive way, it is part of our CIVIC DUTY!
