Time:

As you well know, misinformation and disinformation online can confuse, mislead, and even endanger your students. The News Literacy Project is working hard to ensure that young people do not become caught in a web of falsehoods, hoaxes, and conspiracy theories during election season and beyond by offering a diverse range of education resources.

Join subject matter expert Peter Adams of the News Literacy Project and former CIA officer and author Cindy Otis for a conversation about the difference between misinformation and disinformation. Learn how to tell if a bot or a troll is behind the online content you see and what to do about it. Plus, dive into the information landscape surrounding the 2020 elections and political campaigns.

Along with highlighting resources, including the award-winning Checkology® virtual classroom, participants will learn strategies for honing news literacy skills using timely, real-world examples. And live attendees will have an opportunity to participate in a book giveaway of True or False by Cindy Otis! Come be a part of creating a “future founded on facts” for your students!

This edWebinar will be of interest to teachers, librarians, and school and district leaders of the middle school, high school, and higher ed levels. There will be time for questions at the end of the presentation.
