Episode 33: Teaching Truth Seeking with Jonathan Rogers

Teaching students to be critical thinkers during this pandemic is at the forefront of most teachers' minds. Teaching students to be truth-seekers may be one of the most essential objectives for educators during the COVID-19 pandemic. Combating misinformation and citing credible sources can make all the difference when getting information online.

Jonathan speaks nationally at education and technology conferences and is a contributing writer for Media Shift, JEADigitalMedia.org, the English in Texas journal, and blogs about education on Medium.

In this episode, we discuss the importance of students becoming critical thinkers and managers of their social media accounts, as well as the relevance of media literacy. Jonathan also shares his insights on multiculturalism in the media and the importance of cultural diversity.
