More and more, young people (and adults) are getting their news online and from social media. There is also the increasingly problematic issue of fake news and determining credible news sources online. In an age of pervasive, fast, and on-demand information, there is a need for educators and parents to teach news and media literacy to kids. Jeff Mao, former Senior Director for Common Sense Education and Education Technology Director for the Maine Department of Education will lead us on an exploration of news and media literacy, including:

• Why news and media literacy is more important than ever
• Latest research on kids and news
• What is “fake news” and how to spot it
• Ways teachers can integrate news and media literacy into their curriculum
• Rubrics you can use to assess students’ understanding of news literacy
