Digital and social media grow at such a fast, continual pace it's difficult to keep up. But our kids sure are good at it.
In the last couple of years, we've seen a barrage of misinformation online, making it hard to discern what is real and what is fake.
Dr. Donald Shifrin joins us today to discuss digital literacy in an age of misinformation today. He is a Clinical Professor of Pediatrics Emeritus at the University of Washington School of Medicine and was a practicing clinician and hospital attending in the Seattle Area for 39 years.
He talks about using the internet to self-diagnose, credible sources, critical thinking skills, and how parents can help children parse out quality information vs. junk.
