Information Evaluation

Critical thinking in the digital realm involves assessing the credibility, reliability, and relevance of online information. It’s super important to consider the source, date, and context of digital content to determine its trustworthiness.

Critical thinking helps young people identify potential online threats, scams, or phishing attempts. By critically evaluating online content and messages, they can protect themselves from cyber threats and maintain their online privacy and security.

Critical thinking enables you to recognise and resist online manipulation, such as persuasive advertising, clickbait (content that attracts attention), or other forms of digital persuasion that might exploit a lack of awareness.

Developing critical thinking skills empowers you to be a confident, independent thinker and decision-maker! By utilising critical thinking, you become less susceptible to manipulation and more capable of forming your own well-informed opinions.

The digital space is dynamic and constantly evolving. Critical thinking helps us to adapt to new technologies, platforms, and information sources. It instils a mindset of continuous learning and the ability to navigate and make sense of the ever-changing digital landscape.
