    Abstract:
    Curatorial note from Digital Pedagogy in the Humanities: Mike Caulfield launched DigiPo, a wiki where students from any university or college can evaluate information and claims made on the Web, in response to the alarming prevalence of inaccurate and fake information on the Web. Through DigiPo assignments, students develop skills in evaluating digital information and media, such as online news stories, memes, and images, and then author analyses on the DigiPo wiki. Students develop key digital and information literacy skills, such as understanding the context for information they find on the Web and the process of creating information on the Web (for more, see the Association of College and Research Libraries Framework for Information Literacy for Higher Education). Instructors who want to use DigiPo in their classes can visit the DigiPo help page.
