Article on The Fulcrum touts Informable, NLP’s new app

Media Coverage


An article by The Fulcrum, a nonpartisan digital news organization focused on strengthening American democracy, makes the case that students are not the only ones who need news literacy education. In the Nov. 25 piece, “Adults may need media literacy even more than students,” Eliza Newlin Carney touts NLP’s new brain training app Informable. The mobile app expands NLP’s reach to include the general public. Alan Miller, NLP’s founder and CEO, explains why resources for adults are important. “Unless we give the public the tools to be more discerning consumers and sharers of news and information, we’re not going to be able to address the misinformation pandemic that threatens to undermine the country’s civic life and our democracy.”
