About these Classes

Students at the University of Mary Washington have been contributing to the Digital Polarization Project in several different classes including DGST 395: Applied Digital Studies, DGST 101: Introduction to Digital Studies, and in FSEM 100M7: Beyond the Selfie: Exploring Digital Identity.

In each of these classes, groups of students have been honing their web literacy skills and helping solve the problem of misinformation on the web by creating articles that answer viral questions or debunk viral claims.
