Why news literacy education is important, and how the checkology® virtual classroom teaches essential news literacy skills
  
Speakers:
John Silva, NBCT, Virtual Classroom Coordinator, The News Literacy Project

Peter Adams

Description:
In today’s digital age, information (and misinformation) can be created, published, shared and commented on with just a single click. Presenters will demonstrate the News Literacy Project’s checkology® virtual classroom, which provides students with authentic, innovative and timely blended learning experiences that teach them how to know what to believe. The checkology® learning activities use real-world examples to engage students, either as a class or 1:1, and encourages meaningful discussion about what is fact, what is fiction and how to tell the difference.
