Exploring the Misinformation Landscape
Teacher Workshop | Thursday, October 29, 2020 | 3:30-4:30pm (Pacific Time) | Virtual | Earn 1 Clock Hour
Learn how to teach students to stop using the phrase “fake news” and to identify the many types of misleading, inaccurate, and false information that they encounter every day. We use examples of misinformation to engage students in news literacy and civic learning, and we introduce digital verification skills and tools for debunking manipulated and false images. We also explain the standards of quality journalism, such as fairness, verification, balance and context.
