E204 - Fake News & Post-Truth: News Literacy in Today’s Digital World

3:15 p.m. - 4:00 p.m.
Kimberly Moore, Librarian, Digital Literacy and 3D Design Teacher, All Saints' Episcopal School, Fort Worth, Texas, USA

We are bombarded by news media in multiple formats—print, broadcast, internet, and social. The volume, velocity, and variety of information is growing exponentially. New literacy skills are essential to distinguish between fact and opinion in this ocean of data. How do you tell if a news story is true or false? If adults have trouble deciphering what is true and what is not, then how do our students fare? Moore shares teaching strategies she uses with her digital literacy class on critical-thinking skills for analyzing and judging the reliability of news and information, differentiating among facts, opinions and assertions in the media we consume, create and distribute.
