About this event

What is NewsLitCamp: Misinformation?

NewsLitCamp is an immersive, free professional learning experience primarily for middle and high school educators. It features topical sessions (selected with input from participants) led by journalists and news literacy experts, designed to develop expertise in news literacy education, share specialized teaching resources and provide a behind-the-scenes view of the news reporting process.

This very special NewsLitCamp, as part of National News Literacy Week from January 24 - 28, 2022, is a virtual event designed to to help students understand, recognize and avoid misinformation. Sessions will include insights from expert journalists nationwide, along with the opportunity to connect and share directly with other educators in small, virtual breakout rooms.

Educators who join NewsLitCamp: Misinformation will leave the day with new ideas, skills and resources to help students navigate today’s complex and challenging information landscape and demystify what distinguishes quality journalism from rumors, hoaxes and other types of misinformation.

Who can attend: This NewsLitCamp is designed primarily for middle school and high school educators nationwide. Post-secondary educators are also encouraged to attend. Please email newslitcamp@newslit.org with questions.

This event is made possible with generous support from SmartNews. It is part of a series of NewsLitCamp events led by the News Literacy Project in collaboration with a diverse group of news organizations around the country.
