Is Wikipedia reliable?

How do you distinguish fact from rumor?

What news source is trustworthy?

From social media posts to "citizen journalist" reports to traditional news media, today’s students face questions about the origins, reliability and attribution of information everywhere they turn.

As digital natives who’ve been online their whole lives, they have a unique perspective on these issues, but they still need guidance to ask the right questions and find the answers.

This broad introduction to media literacy provides a set of easy-to-use tools teachers can share with their students to deconstruct the information they encounter online, in print, on social media or on TV.

The interactive workshop is the third one in the series of workshops on How to Recognize and Stop Fake News created by Newseum. In Slovenia it is carried out in partnership with Zavod Časoris.
