Media Literacy: A Crash Course in 60 Minutes

Fake media is a hot topic in education today. In November 2016, the Stanford History Education Group (SHEG) published Evaluating Information: The Cornerstone of Civic Online Reasoning, a study that revealed concerning results. Because students increasingly turn to online news to meet their research needs, it is more important than ever for educators to help them separate truth from fiction.

In this webinar, USA Today Reporter Greg Toppo will join Michelle Luhtala, Library Department Chair of New Canaan High School in CT, to discuss shifting trends in the news business and what teachers can do to help their learners find trustworthy journalism.

This webinar will take place on Wednesday, February 22 at 5:00 pm – 6:00 pm EST.  The event will benefit school librarians and teachers and is free, but preregistration is required. If you register but are unable to attend, audio and materials from the webinar will be available after the event. After participating, you will be emailed a Continuing Education certificate.
