Can your students separate fact from fiction?
Young people today are dealing with the most challenging information landscape in human history. Digital tools, combined with social media, make it easy for anyone to create and spread misinformation and disinformation. Truth, evidence and facts compete for attention alongside rumors, conspiracy theories and false information.
The News Literacy Project (NLP) believes that education is the most effective method to address these challenges. News literacy is a vital life skill. NLP’s Checkology® virtual classroom gives students the tools to sort fact from fiction and determine what information they can trust, share and act on. Join us as we showcase Checkology and help create a future founded on facts!
