Overview

Our "digital natives" may be able to switch effortlessly between Facebook and Twitter while simultaneously uploading a selfie to Instagram and texting a friend, but when it comes to evaluating information from websites and various social media channels, they are usually not as tech savvy. Students and adults are often easily duped and lack the skills to determine what is real and what is not. Join Nikki D Robertson as she provides tips, strategies, and resources to help teach students how to evaluate the authenticity of websites, analyze information found on social media, determine hidden agendas, and avoid falling for hoaxes.

What an awesome webinar. Very informative and really helped me to see ways that I can explain to my students the difference between real news and fake news. I really enjoyed the resources she shared as well as the four lesson plan ideas to help keep students engaged.
 
So important to make things relatable and fun, especially for our older students. Thank you:)
