Developing critical literacies: What students need to know about “fake news”

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

In our “post-truth” era, fact and fiction can be difficult to distinguish, and fake news and misinformation spread rapidly and with ease. In this new reality, education plays a more urgent and important role than ever before: as educators, we must equip today’s youth with the skills and competencies they will need to critically and responsibly navigate the world. In this presentation, participants will be provided with an in-depth look at the “fake news” phenomenon and will be introduced to a variety of tools, resources, and strategies for helping students to become critically literate learners and citizens.
