I am so glad I was able to find this project. There is a huge need to educate the teachers as well as the students in news literacy. This is such a well-researched resource.

Last year, I got a few students interested by exploring Games for Change's news literacy page:

This site is my main lead now. I feel that more people will be drawn to learning news literacy skills if we can show them how it touches them personally.

Thank you!

I learned about Harmony Square today from the wonderful NLP ambassador group. We have a short attention span for social media posts and gravitate toward the flashy. Real-world examples are the best way teach consumers to dig deeper. Both Harmony square and Checkology provide those examples. I like that Harmony Square does not collect personal information and it is intuitive.

I am a high school educator and can't wait to see the information about conspiracy theories!  I am excited to see the information from the Misinformation event.  There are so many great resources for educators to use.
