Don't Get Faked Out by the News

Credits: None available.

Members: $ 0.00
Standard: $ 6.99

Fake news is proliferating. While fake news has always been part of the (dis)information picture, social media and campaign documents have highlighted its impact. The 2016 Stanford report on evaluating information found that most students have difficulty discerning online media such as fake news. Students need to be media literate, which is seldom addressed in curricula. Because of their information expertise and cross-curriculum reach, librarians are well positioned to teach media literacy and apply it to fake news. This webinar explains face news and media literacy, and provides resources (e.g., Bookmark Collection: Fake news), instructional strategies and learning activities to address fake news.

Learning Objectives:

  • Explain fake news.
  • Explain media literacy.
  • Describe ways to teach students how to evaluate fake news as part of media literacy.
