What is Information Literacy?
Information literacy is finding valid answers to questions that are reliable, usable, and able to be both documented and replicated by others needing the same questions answered if necessary.

- How is your answer different now than it would have been during Week 1?
My answer is different now than in Week 1 because I really didn’t understand how others were performing supposedly the same Google searches but getting different answers. I didn’t know about filter bubbles preventing people from getting specific information without a directed search specifically aimed outside their bubbles.

- What will you do differently now that you have taken this course?
I will make sure more of my conservative family and friends get to see results from websites such as https://www.allsides.com/unbiased-balanced-news and see the TED talk about filter bubbles (previous post). I think the most important statement in that talk was programming in some ethical responsibility towards other people and viewpoints.
