Description

When surfing the Internet, how do you determine what is neutral news, analysis, opinion, or just propaganda? How can you guide kids, whether your students or your own, to find reliable sources? Join us for a presentation followed by discussion groups.

NewsGuard is a free media literacy resource that helps people evaluate the credibility of their news. NewsGuard's journalists seek to fight misinformation and spread news literacy by writing "Nutrition Label" reviews of news websites, which provide people with more context for the news & information they see on Facebook and Google. Librarians and educators use NewsGuard's free browser extension and framework for evaluating source credibility and transparency in media literacy lessons with students from middle school to the university level.

Educators who attend will earn 3 CPDUs.


Featured Speaker

Sarah Brandt, Vice President of News Literacy Outreach for NewsGuard


Registration Fee
