Fact Or Fiction? How To Teach Kids (and Adults) To Detect Misinformation Online
The future of democracy depends upon an educated citizenry. When it comes to approaching internet content, what skills are we using? How do we distinguish fact from fiction, reporting from propaganda? And how are we preparing our youth to assess whether content is trustworthy – in other words, to become media literate? Join us on December 8, 2022 from 4:00 – 5:15 p.m. for an opportunity to upgrade your internet skills and check your biases with our expert panel featuring New York state teachers, administrators and students. Moderated by Jay Worona, Co-Chair Committee on Law, Youth & Citizenship.
