Wait, did that really happen? Fake news, clickbait, misinformation, disinformation, and even deep-fake technology are everywhere and their spread can have devastating effects. In a country where almost half of its citizens get their news from social media, individuals regularly diagnose themselves using google, but only 9% of Americans trust the media “a great deal,” we need to arm our students with the tools they need to navigate the media they encounter on a day-to-day basis. Students share stories within 15 seconds, often before reading it completely, so they need a simple, effective way to check whether something is legitimate or not before passing it on. Come and learn some quick and easy ways to teach this important skill to your students, and maybe even yourself.
