This is a Hybrid program - attend in person or virtually via Zoom.
October 23-27 is Media Literacy Week and we will be collaborating with Media Smarts - Canada's centre for digital and media literacy to help learn about the importance of media literacy and fact checking!
In the age of mass information, information overload and viral fake news, how can you know what you are looking at is real, true and accurate? Join this class to learn about the “web of information”, and how you can untangle that web to become a confident fact checker and trusted digital citizen. We'll discuss the 'gut check', and how fake news targets our emotions. We'll also learn how lateral reading and fact checking works in the online environment.
This is a hybrid program; you can attend in person or via Zoom.
