-Get tips for developing credibility strategies that apply to research completed both in and out of school.
-Learn strategies for combating "fake news," including models for evaluating news stories with links to resources on how to include lessons on "fake news" in your curricula.
-Explore the link between Information Literacy and Social Emotional Learning (SEL) while exploring ways that technology can help us with both.
The presenters will tackle large questions from the book like the following:
- Misinformation isn't new; the technology is.
- Why does school need to change their approach to civics, economics, journalism, and media literacy?
- Algorithms, filter bubbles, and social media: Are we getting the same news? Seems like everyone is forcing perspective these days. How do we tackle this together?
- What do we know? Who can you trust? The presenters will discuss resources to help educators, media specialists and administrators tackle the misinformation challenge.
