A New Tool for Digital Citizenship

Lori Gracey at TCEA reports on a new tool for Digital Citizenship called SurfSafe. This unique tool verifies not text articles, but pictures. How does it do this? The browser plug-in compares the picture with similar photos across the Internet, checking to see if the image was changed with photo editing applications like PhotoShop, and the plug-in can be configured by each user based on their most trusted websites.

So, if you see a picture on a clickbait ad of someone burning the flag, is it real or not? Surfsafe can help you identify that photo as real or not.

You can go to Lori's TCEA article here.
