Feedback form is now closed.
In a world where news is spread at the click of a button, it can be difficult to verify fact from fiction. In this session, educators will learn about the numerous forms of misinformation being spread in today's online landscape. They will be provided with useful tools to separate factual accounts from deliberate attempts to mislead, and also given resources to facilitate their students' ability to become critical consumers of media.
