Sam Wineburg in Conversation with Bob Bain

"What is it about the Internet that makes smart people look… well… less than smart?― Dr. Sam Wineburg

Dr. Wineburg opened up the OC's final keynote with a question we've probably all asked ourselves, and the resulting chat was typically lively and irreverent. Speaking with historian Bob Bain, Wineburg discussed challenges that today’s students face when doing research on the internet and strategies for assessing truth. The insights about helping students grapple with sourcing, authority, and critical thinking came fast and thick, and we hope you were able to take notes!  

And of course, you can join our after-party to keep the conversation going!
