Tonight, November 8 from 6-7pm EST, LAMP Education Director Dr. Katherine Fry will join Globaloria’s Master Class webinar for educators for a special question and answer session on News Literacy. The webinar is open only to educators within the Globaloria program, but fear not! You can still check out Dr. Fry’s video about how to evaluate information you find online, using coverage of the ongoing nationwide Occupy protests as a focus.
If you’re not familiar with Globaloria, this is a great time to learn more–especially if you’re an educator. It’s a program from the World Wide Workshop and teaches how social media and gaming can be used to enhance learning, innovation, entrepreneurship and an understanding of the world in economically disadvantaged and technologically under-served communities. The LAMP is proud to be working with Globaloria in helping educators and students gain the digital and media literacy skills they need to thrive in a digital landscape.
