Teaching Media Literacy in the Time of Misinformation


In an era rife with misinformation, a student's best protection is a strong set of media literacy skills. In this interactive session, NewsGuard, a company that fights misinformation by rating news sources, will discuss the tactics and trends employed by those who spread misinformation. Attendees will learn practical strategies to equip their students with the skills to spot misinformation and evaluate the credibility of online content. Together, we can help students become savvy consumers of news—a skill that will serve them for a lifetime.
