Algorithmic Influence on (Re)Search

Small Group Discussion

 In small groups of 2-3 discuss the following questions: 

  1. Where do you usually seek out information from? Either for personal or academic purposes. Add a few responses to our classroom wall.

  2. Do you know if any algorithms are at play in those platforms? What impact might those algorithms have on your results?

  3. How might algorithms impact what we "know"?
