Civic Online Reasoning

We worked with the Santa Cruz-based agency Cosmic to create four films for Civic Online Reasoning, a new project from the Stanford History Education Group and partners including Poytner and Google.org that helps educators teach their students how to navigate information online. This is the intro film, giving teachers a brief overview of the project, why it’s important and who is behind it. We also created films for lessons on Click Restraint, Lateral Reading and the Wise Use of Wikipedia.
