Digital Polarization Initiative | #DigiPo

ADP’s Digital Polarization Initiative, or “DigiPo”, is an effort to build student information and web literacy by having students participate in a broad, cross-institutional project to fact-check, annotate, and provide context to the different news stories that show up in our Twitter and Facebook feeds.

Check out these articles about DigiPo to explore more:

This NeimanLab story highlights how DigiPo encourages students to consider the context and origin of information in today’s highly saturated digital environment.

A recent EDUCAUSEreview article provides an in-depth explanation of DigiPo’s mission, means of operation, and collaboration with non-profit to create a “DigiPo toolkit.”
