Let's make a nutrition label for information. Can we map the building blocks of useful information online? What would a nutrition label look like? What kind of information would go on it, and would we need to do to make it successful? In this workshop, we'll look at a few articles and stories online and talk about what its components are. Then, we'll break up into groups and start developing a nutrition label or map of its components that can help people understand how they should assess it quality. Finally, we'll think about rollout strategies: what does this look like on a platform? How about in a school? What policy strategies will we need to make it effective?
