How to Talk and Teach about Fake News

We hear a lot in the news about “fake news,” but that term, which was coined fairly recently, is really a symptom of some much larger problems, including the lack of media literacy in a digital age where information is instant. In fact, Stanford Graduate School of Education recently found that more than 80% of middle and high school students were unable to distinguish between advertisements and real news stories. As parents and educators, it’s our job to help our learners become more savvy consumers of information.


Based on ConnectSafely’s Parent and Educator Guide to Media Literacy and Fake News, this session will include advice from educators, journalists, media literacy experts, and emotional intelligence researchers on how to bring critical media literacy skills to your classroom/home so that our children are able to make informed decisions about the information that bombards them every day.
