Students taught to think for themselves through critical analysis of social media content

A community college instructor teaches students to to think for themselves by analyzing social media content:

There were no wrong answers. I told them I didn’t care what their bottom line was, as long as they supported it with facts.

They did. They learned to mistrust, but verify. They learned to think for themselves.

We can teach millennials to be savvy social media users

Good!
