Jane explains why it is easy to be misled by information online and the importance of tracing the content

Skill: Click Through & Find

Finding the original source of information can be as simple as clicking a link (and sometimes it’s a little trickier)

Skill: Check the Date

Information circling out of date is a common form of misinformation. Always check the publication date.

Skill: Search the History of an Image

If we search the history of an image we find out where it has been used, and if it’s been manipulated or taken out of context.
