Young people practice hyper reading extensively when they read on the web,
but they frequently do not use it in rigorous and disciplined ways” says Katherine Hayles. But what does this mean in practice? What does it mean to read in “rigorous and disciplined ways” and how can we support students’ habits of mind when they read and interpret information in online environments? In this presentation I will present some empirical studies to highlight challenges and opportunities to support students’ success in navigating in the digital world of humanities. I will also present the News-Evaluator a national collaboration of researchers, designers, teachers and students to map and analyze news-feeds in social media. This presentation is a call for disciplined empirical research beyond the heated debate of a post-truth digital era contaminated by fake news.
