• Digital Polarization Initiative

    The Digital Polarization Initiative, or “DigiPo”, is an attempt to build student civic, information and web literacy by having students participating in a broad, cross-institutional project to fact-check, annotate, and provide context to the different news stories that show up in our Twitter and Facebook feeds.  If you, your class, or campus project or organization would like to participate, complete this Google Form.

    In January 2017, ADP launched its Digital Polarization Initiative, led by our inaugural ADP Civic Fellow Mike Caulfield of Washington State University Vancouver. Mike’s expertise as WSU Vancouver’s director of blended and networked learning and his passion for advancing the learning of online communities and ensuring informed civic engagement make him well-suited to lead this new effort and to galvanize the ADP community around advancing student civic literacy in our digital and polarized age.
