CTRL-F is a project of CIVIX, the people behind the Student Vote parallel election program. Being informed about the issues facing our communities is important part of living in a democracy. This includes knowing how to sort through all the information that comes at us from a wide range of sources. We want to be able to weed out low-quality and unreliable information, and focus on what is trustworthy, so we know we are basing our opinions and actions on the best information available. CTRL-F is designed to help us all build better habits by learning and practicing simple digital literacy techniques that anyone can use.
This site isn’t for you, but we have one that is! Resources on digital information literacy — including more comprehensive activities, assessments and support materials that can be used in conjunction with this site — are available at newsliteracy.ca.
