Let’s face it. Fake media is a hot topic in, ahem, the media. But it is also a hot topic in education. In November 2016, the Stanford History Education Group (SHEG) published Evaluating Information: The Cornerstone of Civic Online Reasoning, a study that revealed concerning results. Because students increasingly turn to online news to meet their research needs, it is more important than ever for educators to help them separate truth from fiction. In this session, USA TODAY Reporter Greg Toppo will join Michelle Luhtala, Library Department Chair, New Canaan High School, CT to discuss shifting trends in the news business and what teachers can do to help their learners sift through the information pool to find trustworthy journalism. This webinar will benefit librarians.
