The LAMP has been talking quite a bit about “fake news.”
We’ve been presenting at conferences from Phoenix to Cambridge, and doing webinars and panels with partners locally and nationally. And there’s no reason to think discussions around fake news will be letting up anytime soon.
However, if you’ve missed any of our insight into the fake news phenomenon or our ideas for how teachers and students can fight misinformation, there is no time like the present to begin your education. On March 28 at 4pm PST/7pm EST, we invite you to join The LAMP, KQED, Educator Innovator and a growing panel of teachers for a free webinar, “Media Literacy Tools to Comprehend & Critique Fake News.” We’ll break down key terms and ideas for understanding fake news with basic media literacy principles. Plus, we’ll also introduce some free tools and activities that educators can use to help students deconstruct and critique fake news stories in the media.
Whether you’re new to teaching the concept of fake news or whether you’re still exhausted from talking about Pizzagate with your students, we want you in on this conversation! There’s no need to RSVP, just mark your calendar and join the webinar from this page. If you’ve got experience teaching fake news, send us an email. We’re looking for teachers to share their stories during the webinar.
