Be informed, not misled
Learn and teach news literacy
The 2024 election season will be among the most closely followed in American history, and as in past years, it also will attract a flood of mis- and disinformation. A new development this year is the rise of artificial intelligence technologies, which can create sophisticated fabrications and distortions that challenge our ability to identify what’s real and what’s not like never before.
The News Literacy Project is working to ensure that you know how to discern fact from fiction and can make well-informed voting decisions when you go to the polls.
We aim to accomplish that through our election misinformation awareness campaign, which will help you learn how to spot false information and hone your skills for identifying and seeking out credible sources and fact-based information.
