We’re often told that we live in the age of information.  It’s true we’re surrounded by data – from TV, the Internet, and from our friends. But, not all information is created equal.  Some is leading, and some is downright wrong.  It’s important to know how to uncover the truth in what we see and hear, to judge sources on credibility, accuracy, reasonableness, and support for their claims.  In this badge, you’ll find out how to separate fact from fiction.



1. Evaluate your sources

2. Investigate what the experts say

3. Be a wise consumer

4. Find truth in your everyday life

When I’ve earned this badge, I’ll be able to figure out what is true in the media, online, and what I hear in my daily life.
