Harvard Education: NLP’s Checkology® virtual classroom is an important tool

NLP in the News

NLP’s Checkology® virtual classroom is a great tool for educators who want to teach their students what to trust and share in the digital age, says Jessica Lander, an author and a high school teacher in Lowell, Massachusetts.

“The News Literacy Project (NLP) has created an online platform, Checkology, with hours of virtual lessons covering everything from First Amendment issues to viral rumors to the role of algorithms in shaping the content you see,” she wrote in Usable Knowledge, the monthly newsletter of the Harvard Graduate School of Education.

Lander also encouraged educators to download NLP’s “Ten Questions for Fake News Detection”* checklist.
