Today’s information landscape is the largest and most complex in human history, with more opportunities and pitfalls for consumers—and democracy—than ever before. This session provides an overview of news literacy and how it can help educators teach students to evaluate the credibility of the information they encounter on a daily basis. It will underscore the importance of teaching students to understand and combat misinformation, and also discuss strategies for helping them understand the vital role that a free press plays in a democracy.
