Join the Newseum and Share My Lesson for a webinar on media literacy.
Now Available on Demand
Is Wikipedia reliable? How do you distinguish fact from rumor? What news source is trustworthy? From social media posts to "citizen journalist" reports to traditional news media, today’s students face questions about the origins, reliability and attribution of information everywhere they turn. As digital natives who’ve been online their whole lives, they have a unique perspective on these issues, but they still need guidance to ask the right questions and find the answers. This professional development workshop introduces teachers to tools they can share with their students to deconstruct the information they encounter online, in print, on social media or on TV. Participants will learn about specific strategies and resources they can bring to their classroom to foster increased media literacy across subject matters.
Available for one-hour of PD credit.
