A critical eye on images
Från WikiSkills kurswiki
Target group: Swedish ‘’gymnasium’’ (advanced secondary school), or possibly third stage primare education (years 7 - 9).
We want students to broaden their view of what “source criticism” means, by critically examining photographic images.
- Students are given images like these, to reflect upon in pairs.
- Introduction to reverse image search engines (e.g. Tineye) and image meta data extractors (“Exif extraction tools”).
- Teacher introduces the reference system of Wikipedia.
- Students are asked to study the sources of a random WP article (references, images etc), and later share their findings to the rest of the class.
