Confident young worse at source
"Confident young worse on source criticism,"

"you Go in high school and believe you have when on digital source criticism?"

"In that case, there is a risk that you overestimate your ability."

"It shows a new study by Nordicom at Gothenburg university."

"In the study, researchers have examined the ability of Swedish high school students aged 16 to 19 to determine the credibility of news on the internet. The study shows that almost seven out of ten valued their ability to fact-checking as good or very good. Eight out of ten valued their ability to search for information as good or very good."

"all the More disappointing were the results of the ability to differentiate news from advertising, nine out of ten did not pass, to do just that. Many also had difficult to identify manipulated images and to distinguish between factual and more biased, texts."

"the Very worst it was for those who believed themselves to be the best on the source. Thomas Nygren, senior lecturer in education at the university, who has conducted the study, says that it is about to have an over-reliance on his own ability."

"– the Origin of the that you actually think you're particularly good at something is often that you do not understand their own limitations. To be cocksure is not rarely a sign of ignorance."

"The high school students that proved to be the best on source criticism was of those who stated that they think it is important to take part of the reliable news."

"– Where we see a kind of humility in the face of others ' knowledge. You can put the two groups in relation to each other. We have a group who think that they know best yourself, which is not so good results. And so we have another group who do not think they know everything and who think that it is important to take part of others 'knowledge, which is better on digital source criticism," says Thomas Nygren."

"But Thomas Nygren points out that previous studies have shown that young people in general, above all, read and share such information that is credible."

"– So there is no jättefara on the roof, this does not mean that young people are in trouble when it comes to source criticism. But we should be aware that young people who believe themselves to be particularly good on digital source criticism is more gullible than those who have a more humble attitude about it."

"Take note of credible material. "
