Hodson on digital literacy, journalism and PR

Stack of folded newspapers

Digital media and online communication expert Dr. Jaigris Hodson appeared on The Attitude w/ Arnie Arnesen on WNHN-LP to discuss digital literacy and the push-pull of journalism and public relations.

Here is some of what she had to say:

“I think we need to reframe digital literacy. We don’t need to teach people how to code. We need to teach every child an orientation to information. How to critically address all this stuff.

“We need to train people to stop just believing information simply because it makes you feel good inside. If it confirms something that you already believe, then that’s a signal that you have to look even more deeply into that material.”
